Wisdom is often nothing more 
than withholding an opinion.
   When all the facts are not in, the wise person will perceive they are not, and reserve judgement. But, a fool will rush to judgement. "A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards," says Proverbs 29:11.
   Even so, sometimes we rush to opinions too quickly, and I speak of current events, and how we rush to our opinions. Wisdom is often nothing more than holding off on an opinion until you know more about an issue or event.
   And, even so, we often are too quick to condemn others, and end up accusing them falsely.
   If you would be wise, then, neither judge your neighbor too harshly, nor place all your public opinions in stone.
