Wisdom quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
My father taught me the most important thing about wisdom - that I was going to have to acquire it from other people. So without teaching me, he taught me how to learn from others. ~ Jarod Kintz
Wisdom quotes by Jarod Kintz
Short isolated sentences were the mode in which ancient Wisdom delighted to convey its precepts, for the regulation of life and manners. ~ William Warburton
Wisdom quotes by William Warburton
When you are friendly everybody will be eager to be your friend. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
Hope blooms when the time is ready. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
It says the American people are full of goodness and wisdom, and you just have to be paying attention. And sometimes that's hard to do when you're inside this bubble, but this was a little portal through which I could remind myself of that every day. The letters are beautiful, aren't they? -Obama ~ Jeanne Marie Laskas
Wisdom quotes by Jeanne Marie Laskas
Shine the light of awareness on your disempowering beliefs and choose to substitute them with empowering beliefs. This way you will choose love over fear and your path to purpose becomes clear. ~ Sharon Kirstin
Wisdom quotes by Sharon Kirstin
But I do think it's important to remember that writers do not have a monopoly of wisdom on their books. They can be wrong about their own books, they can often learn about their own books. ~ China Mieville
Wisdom quotes by China Mieville
Every choice eventually leads to wisdom. ~ Dan Millman
Wisdom quotes by Dan Millman
I never really cared for the things of this world. It was the glow of Your Presence that filled it with beauty. ~ Rumi
Wisdom quotes by Rumi
Words have ruined the standard beauty and Numbers have exaggerated the weight of wealth. ~ Goitsemang Mvula
Wisdom quotes by Goitsemang Mvula
Swim upstream. Go the other way. Ignore the conventional wisdom. ~ Sam Walton
Wisdom quotes by Sam Walton
I thought myself sufficiently shrewd to make whatever decisions I wanted to make, and then to be able to sufficiently steer those decisions away from the rather dark and nasty places they would naturally take me. And I stand oddly perplexed that suddenly everything around me is dark and nasty. ~ Craig D. Lounsbrough
Wisdom quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
It is infinitely harder to ask questions in such a way that the audience is led not to the answers (the province of the demagogue) but to new perceptions. ~ Gore Vidal
Wisdom quotes by Gore Vidal
We possess nothing certainly except the past ~ Evelyn Waugh
Wisdom quotes by Evelyn Waugh
Age may catch up with you, just never let it over take you. ~ Benny Bellamacina
Wisdom quotes by Benny Bellamacina
I am only a cup that knowledge holds. It does not to knowledge matter how poor the cup is. It is the wisdom of those who drink of me that me wise makes. Fools make a sibyl foolish, wherever she is. ~ Joan D. Vinge
Wisdom quotes by Joan D. Vinge
Shakespeare and his few peers invented all of us. ~ Harold Bloom
Wisdom quotes by Harold Bloom
PICARD: Did you read that book I gave you? (Wesley reacts, barely concealing a grimace as he recalls.)
WESLEY: Some of it.
PICARD: That's reassuring.
WESLEY: I just don't have much time.
PICARD: (re the book in his hand) There is no greater challenge than the study of philosophy. (Wesley glances over at Picard's book)
WESLEY: William James sure won't be on my Starfleet exams.
PICARD: The important things never will be. Anyone can be trained to deal with technology, and the mechanics of piloting a starship.
WESLEY: But Starfleet Academy--
PICARD: It takes more than just that. Open your mind to the past... to history, art, philosophy. And then... (re: the stars) ...this will mean something.
(Wesley considers this, almost embarrassed as he realizes Picard does truly care about him.)
Then: PICARD (continuing) Just consider James' wisdom: "Philosophy... is not a technical matter... it is our sense of what life honestly means... our individual way of feeling the total push and pressure of the cosmos."
(then) That's what I want for you.

"Samaritan Snare" #40272-143
Written by Robert L. McCullough ~ Jean-Luc Picard
Wisdom quotes by Jean-Luc Picard
An original pebble is better than a counterfeit diamond. ~ Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
The trick to saying the word cock, is to do it like you have one in your mouth. ~ Geoffrey Knight
Wisdom quotes by Geoffrey Knight
Cast from your heart the bitterness ... ~ Vincent De Paul
Wisdom quotes by Vincent De Paul
When question arise
Dream or not to dream
Always dream. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom is better than weapons of war; but one sinner destroyeth much good. ~ Doris Lessing
Wisdom quotes by Doris Lessing
Most men are followers, and implicitly rely upon the judgment of others. They mistake solemnity for wisdom, and regard a grave countenance as the title page and Preface to a most learned volume. So they are easily imposed upon by forms, strange garments, and solemn ceremonies. And when the teaching of parents, the customs of neighbors, and the general tongue approve and justify a belief or creed, no matter how absurd, it is hard even for the strongest to hold the citadel of his soul. In each country, in defence of each religion, the same arguments would be urged. ~ Robert Green Ingersoll
Wisdom quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
We came to the world with love and hope
We are the creation of hope, faith and love. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
Ws 6:1 Wisdom is better than strength: and a wise man is better than a strong man. ~ Various
Wisdom quotes by Various
Some men, as they age, grow kinder. I am not one of those, for I have seen how the cosmere can mistreat the innocent - and that leaves me disinclined toward kindness. Some men, as they age, grow wiser. I am not one of those, for wisdom and I have always been at cross-purposes, and I have yet to learn the tongue in which she speaks. Some men, as they age, grow more cynical. I, fortunately, am not one of those. If I were, the very air would warp around me, sucking in all emotion, leaving only scorn.
Other men...other men, as they age, merely grow stranger. I fear that I am one of those. I am the bones of a foreign species left drying on the plain that was once, long ago, a sea. A curiosity, perhaps a reminder, that all has not always been as it is now. ~ Brandon Sanderson
Wisdom quotes by Brandon Sanderson
Those who do not think bout the future cannot have one. ~ Michael J. Kami
Wisdom quotes by Michael J. Kami
It is possible to be confident and still practice humility. Be confident in the success of the teachable, sure in the power & grace of That which supports you. ~ Russell Kyle
Wisdom quotes by Russell Kyle
One who is mild rather than forceful has greater capacity for outreach. ~ Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Wisdom quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
The best aphorisms are ... portable wisdom, the quintessential extracts of thought and feeling. They furnish the largest amount of intellectual stimulus and nutriment in the smallest compass. About every weak point in human nature, or vicious spot in human life, there is deposited a crystallization of warning and protective proverbs. ~ William Rounseville Alger
Wisdom quotes by William Rounseville Alger
Seeing, contrary to popular wisdom, isn't believing. It's where belief stops, because it isn't needed any more. ~ Terry Pratchett
Wisdom quotes by Terry Pratchett
There is no greater fool than the man who thinks himself wise; no one is wiser than he who suspects he is a fool. ~ Margaret Of Valois
Wisdom quotes by Margaret Of Valois
All we can know is that we know nothing. And that's the height of human wisdom. ~ Leo Tolstoy
Wisdom quotes by Leo Tolstoy
You had an image of life inside you, a belief or an ideal, that you were ready to do good deeds, to suffer, and to sacrifice – and by degrees you noticed that the world had no need of your good deeds, or sacrifices, and such like; that life was not an heroic tale, with roles for heroes, and such like, but a comfortable bourgeois parlour, where one is perfectly satisfied with eating and drinking, coffee and knitted stockings, tarot readings and music on the radio. And he who wants otherwise and has the heroic and the beautiful inside him, the veneration of great poets or the adoration of saints inside him, he is a fool and a knight errant, a latter day Don Quixote? ~ Hermann Hesse
Wisdom quotes by Hermann Hesse
Fast reading of a great novel will get us the plot. It will get us names, a shadowy idea of characters, a sketch of settings. It will not get us subtleties, small differentiations, depth of emotion and observation, multilayered human experience, the appreciation of simile and metaphor, any sense of context, any comparison with other novels, other writers. Fast reading will not get us cadence and complexities of style and language. It will not get us anything that enters not just the conscious mind but the unconscious. It will not allow the book to burrow down into our memory and become part of ourselves, the accumulation of knowledge and wisdom and vicarious experience which helps to form us as complete human beings. It will not develop our awareness or add to the sum of our knowledge and intelligence. Read parts of a newspaper quickly or an encyclopaedia entry, or a fast-food thriller, but do not insult yourself or a book which has been created with its author's painstakingly acquired skill and effort, by seeing how fast you can dispose of it. ~ Susan Hill
Wisdom quotes by Susan Hill
Wisdom is hard to get but hardest to lose if once obtained. ~ Deepak Burfiwala
Wisdom quotes by Deepak Burfiwala
Never write about martial arts..
if you've never been in a real fight. ~ Toba Beta
Wisdom quotes by Toba Beta
This is an example of what Jung called "the regressive restoration of the persona," namely, the re-identification with a former position, role, ideology because it offers a predictable content, security, and script. In the face of the new and uncertain, we often return to the old place, which is why we so often stop growing. (It has become clear to me, for example, that aging itself does not bring wisdom. It often brings regression to childishness, dependency, and bitterness over lost opportunities. ~ James Hollis
Wisdom quotes by James Hollis
For there is assuredly nothing dearer to a man than wisdom, and though age takes away all else, it undoubtedly brings us that. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
Wisdom quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Your life is a learning process - you can only become wiser from learning. Sometimes you might have to attract making a painful mistake to learn something important, but after the mistake you have far greater wisdom. Wisdom cannot be bought with money - it can only be acquired through living life. With wisdom comes strength, courage, knowing, and an ever-increasing peace. ~ Rhonda Byrne
Wisdom quotes by Rhonda Byrne
Imagine learning all the great wisdom of the world just so that you can get a job. What an absurdity. We should be learning all the great wisdom of the world in order to become wise. ~ Eddie Campbell
Wisdom quotes by Eddie Campbell
Wisdom begins at the end. ~ Daniel Webster
Wisdom quotes by Daniel Webster
Confidence is good, but confidence with humility is far better. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
Vanity rather than wisdom determines how the world is run. ~ Kurt Vonnegut
Wisdom quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
Wisdom, Power and Goodness meet
In the bounteous field of wheat. ~ Hannah Flagg Gould
Wisdom quotes by Hannah Flagg Gould
They only trusted the wisdom of people brighter and more worldly than themselves when it was expressed in the vocabulary and style of rural idiots. In his guise as Brazenydol, he had once had a contract with DARPA to teach a team of physicists the basic terminology of tractor pulls so that they could give an acceptable explanation of omniwavelength stealth to a Congressional committee that didn't understand tractor pulls, either. ~ John Barnes
Wisdom quotes by John Barnes
Life is a changing sequence of situations.If you do not change something, something will change you. ~ Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Wisdom quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Look back on your life and find those moments of giving. Fill life with those moments; life will be worth living. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
It is important to arrange games and competition so that all Scouts of the troop take part. ~ Baden Powell De Aquino
Wisdom quotes by Baden Powell De Aquino
In the hearts of men lies both good and evil. The two coexist. Some men become good, and others become evil. It is the way of this world.
-Kikyo ~ Rumiko Takahashi
Wisdom quotes by Rumiko Takahashi
A Warrior's Pledge of Purity
By Jason Lee Morgan

I will have faith that God empowers me for purity
I will have faith that God has something better
I will be encouraged by Your faithfulness
I will sharpen my sword today for purity
I will meditate on purity throughout my day
I will strategize for victory, rather than brace for defeat
I will outline the known of my day
That I may prepare for the pitfalls to come
And preemptively guard against what is known
I will pray before I enter battle
I will pray for protection
I will pray for wisdom
I will pray for strength
I will pray for miracles if need be!
I will take my stand by way of escape
As a coward I shall be in the face of impurity
Only my back shall it see
I will bear the strange appearance of downward eyes
That no impure image be stamped within me
I will go out of my way to avoid the face of impurity
I will hurt the feelings of others if need be, to preserve my purity before You
I will not long for the past, but dwell on what is pure
I will not place others above You as my reason for purity
I will recall Your holiness daily
I will love You with Christ-like love
And sacrifice what is necessary to glorify You
I will recite this daily, that I do not forget Thee ~ Jason Lee Morgan
Wisdom quotes by Jason Lee Morgan
A great maxim of personal responsibility and mature achievement: "Do it yourself" is now the enthroned cliche for being occupied with nonessentials. ~ Louis Kronenberger
Wisdom quotes by Louis Kronenberger
Everything that happens, happens at the only possible time it can happen, and it is always at exactly the right time. We cannot get to an appointment before we arrive - or after. It is only at the instant of our arrival that we can arrive, and that is always at exactly the right moment, the perfect moment, the only possible moment. ~ Wu Wei
Wisdom quotes by Wu Wei
Perhaps a human simply falls back into himself upon the disintegration of his physical body, and continues to take form within the self of himself, simply returning from whence he came. ~ C. JoyBell C.
Wisdom quotes by C. JoyBell C.
These friends represent an oversimplified "orthodoxy," based on a misreading of the wisdom tradition to the effect that all troubles are punishments for wrongdoing. Their "comfort" consists largely of applying this message to Job, urging him to identify his sin and repent of it. ~ Anonymous
Wisdom quotes by Anonymous
Your prayers are your light;
Your devotion is your strength;
Sleep is the enemy of both.
Your life is the only opportunity that life can give you.
If you ignore it, if you waste it,
You will only turn to dust. ~ Rabia Basri
Wisdom quotes by Rabia Basri
I am more interested in the insecure transparency in you than the pretentious character. Naked is surreal, it may make you feel vulnerable for a while yet it will take us on a journey worth remembering. ~ Suchet Chaturvedi
Wisdom quotes by Suchet Chaturvedi
Ecclesiastes calls you the All-powerful; the Maccabees call you the Creator; the Epistle to the Ephesians calls you liberty; Baruch calls you Immensity; the Psalms call you Wisdom and Truth; John calls you Light; the Books of Kings call you Lord; Exodus calls you Providence; Leviticus, Sanctity; Esdras, Justice; the creation calls you God; man calls you Father; but Solomon calls you Compassion, and that is the most beautiful of all your names. ~ Victor Hugo
Wisdom quotes by Victor Hugo
What you have in your mind, your talents, your native abilities, no one can take from you. When you die, you take them with you. Use them diligently while you are here. ~ Alfred Armand Montapert
Wisdom quotes by Alfred Armand Montapert
Life is loves shrine
when you're my valentine. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
Through mutual understanding, sincerity and goodwill, and with great wisdom and broad views, the leaders on both sides should jointly initiate new opportunities for peace, stability, cooperation and mutual benefit. ~ Chen Shui-bian
Wisdom quotes by Chen Shui-bian
The world bears the Gospel a grudge because the Gospel condemns the religious wisdom of the world. ~ Martin Luther
Wisdom quotes by Martin Luther
Even though you are equipped with life changing wisdom that could transform lives, you must not share it without an invitation. Most people just want to be heard and loved, they don't want your wisdom, and that is OK. Sometimes, you can actually become the greatest impediment to other people growing when you try and force things on them. In time, if they see you model it, they will probably start to ask. ~ Joshua Medcalf
Wisdom quotes by Joshua Medcalf
Eternity, sacred time. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Wisdom quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wisdom leads us back to childhood. Except ye become as little children. ~ Blaise Pascal
Wisdom quotes by Blaise Pascal
The worship of power is an old religion. ~ George Santayana
Wisdom quotes by George Santayana
From nothing comes everything. ~ Dejan Stojanovic
Wisdom quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
As we discard a limited mind and a life of limitation to step into the grandness of vastness, we realize infinity itself to be the Guru and all that we do as grace. As we traverse through consciousness that is the Guru, we become the Guru and each thought of ours is perfect in the now, as scriptures. Consciousness is the Guru, the wisdom. ~ Nandhiji
Wisdom quotes by Nandhiji
In many ways a child has actually re-educated the parents upon arrival into their lives - when else do adults take the time to appreciate acorns or clouds? ~ Ian-Anthony Finnimore
Wisdom quotes by Ian-Anthony Finnimore
Many of the time-honored [parenting] techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation are, quite simply, bad advice masquerading as wisdom. ~ Susan Forward
Wisdom quotes by Susan Forward
You are a tower of God. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Wisdom quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
If you want to be happy in the future, be happy now. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
What we seek from truth, we find in knowledge. What we seek from knowledge, we find in wisdom. What we seek from wisdom, we find in God. What we seek from God, we find in love. ~ Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
Sometimes it is more important to discover what one cannot do, than what one can do. ~ Lin Yutang
Wisdom quotes by Lin Yutang
The problem of restoring integration and co-operation between man's beliefs about the world in which he lives and his beliefs about values and purposes that should direct his conduct is the deepest problem modern life. It is the problem of any philosophy that is not isolated from life. ~ John Dewey
Wisdom quotes by John Dewey
If you foolishly ignore beauty, then you will soon find yourself without it. ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
Wisdom quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright
Do you understand what's going on here?"
Hodgesaargh took another slow look at the scene. "No," he said.
"In that case's not my job to understand this sort of thing," said the falconer. "I wasn't trained. Probably takes a lot of training, understanding this. That's your job. And her job. Can you understand what's going on when a bird's been trained and'll make a kill and still came back to the wrist?"
"Well, no - "
"There you are, then. So that's all right. Cup of tea, was it? ~ Terry Pratchett
Wisdom quotes by Terry Pratchett
True and sound wisdom consists of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves. ~ John Calvin
Wisdom quotes by John Calvin
May your happiness be according to your wishes. ~ Lawrence H. Levy
Wisdom quotes by Lawrence H. Levy
It is not how much you are paid that matters. But how much you get done that is most important. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Wisdom quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
The world's most beautiful pearls are inside your heart. The universe's most beautiful diamonds are inside your soul. ~ Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
Man is a willful and covetous animal, who makes use of his intellect to satisfy his inclinations, but who cares nothing for truth, who rebels against personal discipline, who hates disinterested thought and the idea of self-education. Wisdom offends him, because it rouses in him disturbance and confusion, and because he will not see himself as he is. ~ Henri Frederic Amiel
Wisdom quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel
I travel, always arriving in the same place. ~ Dejan Stojanovic
Wisdom quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
The townsfolk in their darkened rooms were dazed as if by some cataclysm, some devastating earthquake, against which all wisdom and all resistance is of no avail. Such a feeling is produced every time the established order of things is upset, when security is destroyed and everything is hitherto protected by the laws of man or nature is suddenly at the mercy of wild unreasoning brutality. ~ Guy De Maupassant
Wisdom quotes by Guy De Maupassant
I set my mind to seek and explore by wisdom concerning all that has been done under heaven. It is a grievous task which God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with. ~ Solomon
Wisdom quotes by Solomon
Data is not information, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding, understanding is not wisdom. ~ Clifford Stoll
Wisdom quotes by Clifford Stoll
I know there are days when even one single positive thought feels like too much effort, but you must develop an unconditional love for life. You must never lose your childish curiosity for the possibilities in every single day. Who you can be, what you can see, what you can feel and where it can lead you. Be in love with your life, everything about it. The sadness and the joys, the struggles and the lessons, your flaws and strengths, what you lose and what you gain. ~ Charlotte Eriksson
Wisdom quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
Honesty is not only the deepest policy, but the highest wisdom; since, however difficult it may be for integrity to get on, it is a thousand times more difficult for knavery to get off; and no error is more fatal than that of those who think that Virtue has no other reward because they have heard that she is her own. ~ Charles Caleb Colton
Wisdom quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
Don't look for rich friends, look for loyal ones. ~ Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
If you try to make everyone happy, everyone will be happy but you. ~ Bryant McGill
Wisdom quotes by Bryant McGill
Beauty is a King that needs to be obeyed ~ Nuh Ha Mim Keller
Wisdom quotes by Nuh Ha Mim Keller
A wise person is silent and rarely wants to show his wisdom. A fool is always vocal and uses every opportunity to show his foolishness. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
Never run from the truth, it will always overtake you. ~ Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
It's Much Better To Be Driven By An Inner Sense Of Purpose Than By The Outer Flashy Success". ~ Venugopal Acharya
Wisdom quotes by Venugopal Acharya
Ignorance must be prosecuted when arrested. The only way for its arrest is by information and the only way for prosecution is through reading and learning of new things. ~ Israelmore Ayivor
Wisdom quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
Smile without reason, because you are the reason. ~ Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
