As defined by the dictionary, “wisdom” is:

1. The ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting; insight.
2. Common sense; good judgment: “It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things” (Henry David Thoreau).
  A. The sum of learning through the ages; knowledge: “In those homely sayings was couched the collective wisdom of generations” (Maya Angelou).
  B. Wise teachings of the ancient sages.
4. A wise outlook, plan, or course of action.

I’ve always wondered what criteria exists to actually deem a person or people as “wise.” I thought it was a personal, subjective thing. But it seems like the Council of Europe knows.

“Group of Wise Persons”?! The Council of Europe is going to be very disappointed if the GWP comes up with anything short of perfection.
