The major virtue one acquires from the study of human language is humility through wisdom. Yet, the first lesson human language teaches us is that abstract concepts do not exist. If you cannot see, hear, touch, smell or taste it, dig deeper until – as in archaeology – you hit the bedrock. In humility, the bedrock is Latin humus 'earth' – whence also human. In wisdom, the root wis- denotes 'knowledge', whence the unsurprising German equivalent – Weisheit. 'Knowledge', however, itself being an abstract concept, digging deeper leads us to a common Indo-European root, weyd- 'to see', which has developed into Latin and Slavonic vid-, branching off with the meaning 'to know' into Slavonic věd- and Germanic wit- – whence, among others, English [un]wit[t][ing][ly]. Vedic Sanskrit is the language of the Vedas, the books containing the 'knowledge' – the same veda, which, in Slovak, among other Slavonic languages, means 'science' (from Latin scio, reincarnated in Romanian știu 'I know' – whence conscience '[awareness coming] with-knowledge'). Humility through wisdom – groundedness through knowledge!
