Splendid! That's how they call it today.
Anyway, Boz was very smart and shrewd a person. He had a tremendous intellectual power to observe, to make conclusions and to embody them in exquisite verbal form.

From the work "Hard Times" by Charles Dickens 1812-1870

Thomas Gradgrind, the first character and his daughter Luisa talking.

Chapter I — Another Thing Needful

‘Some persons hold,’ he pursued, still hesitating, ‘that there is a wisdom of the Head, and that there is a wisdom of the Heart. I have not supposed so; but, as I have said, I mistrust myself now.

The wisdom of the head,
...the wisdom of the heart,
Get all the help they want,
...from wisdom of the mouth.

I'm learning english and I don't know how to express my words that I want, and for that reason I have to have wisdom to write in this moment. I just want to say that the Best wisdom come from God.
