As Given To Solomon
Young boy, I have seen more horror than you ever shall. And so I have more wisdom than you can ever understand.
Sir, I have seen unrivalled beauty. I have known inner peace, even now. I have gazed upon a sunset in wonder and joy with the cool air calming my adrenaline. In these things I know my way, but wisdom is gained not through suffering, nor happiness, nor age; wisdom is a gift from God alone.
