Sagacity is the word of the day


sagacity

Wisdom and good judgment often seem in shorter supply than the words to describe them, such as this one, ultimately from a Latin root meaning "seek." It would be a pretty good guess to think it was related to sage ("wise person"), but in fact the latter, though also going back to Latin, is separately derived via French.
