I say most 'knowledgeable' is the SW universe is long past. The name of the person has been lost to the sands of time and even their wisdom has been lost for the most part. But I say it is he/she whom wrote the first Jedi code, one from long before The Great Hyperspace War. Back when Sith and Jedi were just being born and the first fights of light and dark began.

Emotion, yet peace.
Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity.
Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.

They understood that the force was both light and dark. It is but difference sides to the same coin, and only through unblinded eyes could one truly understand The Force.

He did allow Anakin to be trained as a Jedi resulting in the destruction of the current Jedi order, pretty shoddy wisdom there Yoda.

What you neglect to acknowledge and remember is that Yoda didnt approve Anakin's training, mearly his training within the Order itself. I know same difference...wrong. Obi-Wan stated he'd train Anakin with or without the Order's help. So Yoda faced the choice of whether or not the Order should assist best they could or not in Anakin's training.

I think the main problem is Yoda's advice isn't very practical, at all.
I spent ages looking through everything on that site, and found a quote that literally left me laughing for ages...Under Things yoda failed to do:

"Grasp the rules of basic English (or Galactic Basic where we come from), in spite of having had NINE HUNDRED YEARS TO FIGURE IT OUT."

Followed by:
"The moral of the story is, the next time a gramatically-challenged swamp-dwelling hypocritical magic space goblin tries to give YOU advice about how to live your life, maybe just point him to this list, hop back into your X-Wing and get the Force out of there."
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away fromů save one.
