IF YOU SET OUT TO FIND WISDOM, BE PREPARED FOR THE TRAIN WRECK.
I've come to believe that wisdom equates to fear. The depth of a philosopher's inquiry is the measure of their fear of being. Looking at one's fears is kinda train wreckish.
These days I settle down to find nothing instead. Have nothing against wisdom or wise men like Genkaku or olcharlie of course, but I am alright with nothingness or what is less scientific than vacuum or voidness, e.g. sunyata.
