With the rapid advance of the Internet, everybody can get the information from it easily. There are, however, few system which extracts and presents the information suitable for user’s sentiment. We propose the system that searches for the information based on user’s sentiment. In this paper, we propose words-of-wisdom search system as a first step of the research. We propose two types of words-of-wisdom search based on user’s sentiment. One is positive/negative (P/N) sentiment, the other is multi-dimensional sentiment. Both of two methods, we calculate sentiment value of words which consists of words-of-wisdom. After that we calculate sentiment value of words-of-wisdom by using sentiment value of words.
