Need for wisdom

Anyway, with reference to the story of the three little pigs, the story in chicken soup goes like this. There was this teacher, who forced every single one of his students to memorise famous quotations (pearls of wisdoms as they called it) every day, Mark his most notorious students didn't see what use these pearls have. A decade after he left school, he ran into some trouble, and felt he would be better off dying, so he slit his wrist, and waited for death, but all of a sudden, a pearl of wisdom flashed across his mind, "You have truly failed, only if you give up trying." He didn't want to fail, he hasn't failed yet, he summoned his last ounce of strength and called for help. To this day I don't know if he is 'successful', but he has already succeeded, for he didn't give up trying. And so knowledge, wisdom is definitely a good thing to have, for you never know when you might have a need for them.
