View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Many years ago, Robert M. Thompson concluded that people in society who enjoy a high quality of life are able to do so because of one driving force: wisdom. Not to be confused with knowledge, intelligence, or common sense, wisdom is a noble virtue that cannot be taught, but rather must be sought by the individual. And, contrary to popular belief, wisdom is not merely privy to the elder generation it is available to anyone who seeks it. In Wisdom, Apples, & Black Roses, Robert M. Thompson presents a heartfelt and instructional guide to becoming wise. He starts with a detailed definition of wisdom and then moves on to how one can seek wisdom on his own. Based on years of personal experience and mentoring from others, Thompson asks the reader to consider the four essential aspects of wisdom: humility, awareness, courage, and contentment. From complex social issues that affect us all, to the very personal matters of marriage and family life, Thompson reveres the profound power of wisdom to positively impact all aspects of human life.

About the Author:

In addition to a long career in the water treatment industry, Robert M. Thompson operated his own business as an accountant for many years. He also conducted small business management courses for adults. It was through interaction with his students and clients that Thompson discovered there are always people who excel and others who lag behind. Thompson decided the difference was wisdom. He decided to write Wisdom, Apples, & Black Roses after finding a lack of literature detailing the value of wisdom to personal success.
