Pearls of Wisdom

Wisdom isn't always learned from books... and sometimes smart people aren't very wise. Some people have the gift of being inherently wise, and some of us learn how to be wise through life's lessons.


I treasure little pearls of wisdom that are given to me from time to time... thoughts that will make me grow and learn, and become a little wiser myself. This one is from a woman I love and admire... a woman who is full of wisdom, Marjorie Hinckley.

Great shot. I love how it was framed, and the delicate pearls draped over the book.

Great thoughts filled with wisdom. I love Sister Hinckley. She was a great lady.

That is an amazing shot--I love the set-up, the lighting, everything. You should put this one on a card or a poster.
