Are you a Sage?

Sage means a thorough reflection proceeding from wisdom, prudence, and judgment.

In ancient societies, some men and women were identified as  sages; however, rarely is the word used now. Is that because no one pauses long enough to thoroughly reflect on a topic? Are we so busy doing (whatever) that we respond with our emotions and intuitions rather than with prudent thought?

How do you formulate responses to events in your life? Where does sage-ness — the process of thinking wisely and prudently — come in?
