Words of Wisdom is a 2003 slice of life brickfilm by Chris Salt. It follows the story of Mike, who is making a stop-motion movie. It was an entry to the Brickfilms.com Words of Wisdom Contest, winning the prize for the Best Theme category and placing second overall.
Mike quietly works on his stop-motion film. Geoff walks in and asks about Mike's activities. Mike explains that he's making a stop-motion film, and it will probably take a while to make. Geoff leaves and Mike continues working. Eventually Mike's other roommate Rod walks in, nude and carrying a paddle and an oil can. Rod quickly excuses himself.
Hours pass, and Geoff returns, suggesting that Mike do something "more productive." Mike shows Geoff his nearly-finished film, which consists of one guy throwing something at another guy and then falling over. Geoff says Mike should get a life, then leaves. The film ends with a quote by Bertrand Russell: "Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."
