Since 1989, NBC has run a series of public service announcements called “The More You Know.” The goal of these short segments is to provide a piece of information that will make people’s lives better. We often operate under the assumption that the key to a better life is more knowledge, but is that true? There may not be a better person to explore this question than Solomon, the man who is known by many as the wisest man to ever live. Solomon’s conclusion is this: while wisdom is better than foolishness, it often brings with it its own sorrows and frustrations. At the end of the day wisdom alone is not enough to make life matter or to make life meaningful.
