A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: A very wise person.
In the Old Testament, Solomon, a king of Israel, was known for his wisdom. According to one story, he identified the real mother of a baby by suggesting to the two quarreling women that the child be cut into two and shared between them. The real mother agreed to give up the child instead, and was proclaimed as the true mother. Earliest documented use: 1554.
"This involved legal and moral precepts which would require a Solomon to sort out."
Oswald G. Ragatz; Reunion with M urder; 1st Book Library; 2001.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:Just as a cautious businessman avoids tying up all his capital in one concern, so, perhaps, worldly wisdom will advise us not to look for the whole of our satisfaction from a single aspiration. -Sigmund Freud, neurologist, founder of psychoanalysis (1856-1939)
