#21. 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.

#26. Wisdom is better than weapons of war; but one sinner destroyeth much good. - Author: Doris Lessing
Wisdom quotes by Doris Lessing
#27. 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. - Author: Robert Green Ingersoll
Wisdom quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#28. We came to the world with love and hope
We are the creation of hope, faith and love. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#29. Ws 6:1 Wisdom is better than strength: and a wise man is better than a strong man. - Author: Various
Wisdom quotes by Various
#30. 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. - Author: Brandon Sanderson
Wisdom quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#31. Those who do not think bout the future cannot have one. - Author: Michael J. Kami
Wisdom quotes by Michael J. Kami

#33. One who is mild rather than forceful has greater capacity for outreach. - Author: Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Wisdom quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
#34. 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. - Author: William Rounseville Alger
Wisdom quotes by William Rounseville Alger
#35. Seeing, contrary to popular wisdom, isn't believing. It's where belief stops, because it isn't needed any more. - Author: Terry Pratchett

Wisdom quotes by Margaret Of Valois
#37. All we can know is that we know nothing. And that's the height of human wisdom. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Wisdom quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#38. 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? - Author: Hermann Hesse
Wisdom quotes by Hermann Hesse
#39. 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. - Author: Susan Hill
Wisdom quotes by Susan Hill
#40. Wisdom is hard to get but hardest to lose if once obtained. - Author: Deepak Burfiwala
Wisdom quotes by Deepak Burfiwala
#41. Never write about martial arts..
if you've never been in a real fight. - Author: Toba Beta
Wisdom quotes by Toba Beta
#42. 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. - Author: James Hollis
Wisdom quotes by James Hollis
#43. For there is assuredly nothing dearer to a man than wisdom, and though age takes away all else, it undoubtedly brings us that. - Author: Marcus Tullius Cicero
Wisdom quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#44. 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. - Author: Rhonda Byrne
Wisdom quotes by Rhonda Byrne
#45. 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. - Author: Eddie Campbell
Wisdom quotes by Eddie Campbell
#46. Wisdom begins at the end. - Author: Daniel Webster

#49. Wisdom, Power and Goodness meet
In the bounteous field of wheat. - Author: Hannah Flagg Gould
Wisdom quotes by Hannah Flagg Gould
#50. 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. - Author: John Barnes

-Kikyo - Author: Rumiko Takahashi
Wisdom quotes by Rumiko Takahashi
#55. 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 - Author: Jason Lee Morgan
Wisdom quotes by Jason Lee Morgan
#56. A great maxim of personal responsibility and mature achievement: "Do it yourself" is now the enthroned cliche for being occupied with nonessentials. - Author: Louis Kronenberger
Wisdom quotes by Louis Kronenberger
#57. 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. - Author: Wu Wei
Wisdom quotes by Wu Wei
#58. 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. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Wisdom quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#59. 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. - Author: Anonymous
Wisdom quotes by Anonymous
#60. 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. - Author: Rabia Basri
Wisdom quotes by Rabia Basri

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. - Author: Victor Hugo

#66. The world bears the Gospel a grudge because the Gospel condemns the religious wisdom of the world. - Author: Martin Luther
Wisdom quotes by Martin Luther
#67. 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. - Author: Joshua Medcalf
Wisdom quotes by Joshua Medcalf

Wisdom quotes by Nandhiji

Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#86. 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 quotes by Dejan Stojanovic

Wisdom quotes by Guy De Maupassant

Wisdom quotes by Clifford Stoll
#91. 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. - Author: Charlotte Eriksson
Wisdom quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#92. 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. - Author: Charles Caleb Colton
Wisdom quotes by Charles Caleb Colton

#101. We must learn our limits. We are all something, but none of us are everything. - Author: Blaise Pascal
Wisdom quotes by Blaise Pascal
#102. Many people think that love represents chains, bondage, the opposite of freedom. But people who believe such things are simple-minded creatures who have been lied to, and who easily accept the general trend of the lie. It is in fact love that is the only thing powerful enough to set one free from even the most deeply-embedded and thoroughly-wound chains of the soul, the mind, and the body. The fact is that we are born into chains and born into bondages; these things are put upon us by fear, pain and doubt. When you are thoroughly loved by someone in mind and in heart, this has the power to set you so free, more free than you have ever been before. And that is because freedom is not the equivalent of detachment. Freedom is the equivalent of that which sets you free. And when someone loves you the way that only they can, that is what sets you free. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Wisdom quotes by C. JoyBell C.

#109. If there is no way out and confrontation and battle is inevitable, one can use power and strategy, balance and wisdom and enlightenment to win, of course. But the best battle is the battle that is never fought. - Author: Frederick Lenz

Having more than your neighbor and never enough.
For these types of folks it's all about fortune and fame.

It's wisdom, not money that makes life grand. - Author: Jacob M. Held

#116. Because we do not understand all the circumstances surrounding someone's suicide, the level of the person's accountability, and the penalty that the Lord, in his infinite love and wisdom, may see fit to inflict upon the person, we must avoid judgment. Regardless of those circumstances and the Lord's divinely imposed punishment, followers of Christ are to be loving and compassionate to those who are hurt by the act of suicide. - Author: Brent L. Top
Wisdom quotes by Brent L. Top
#117. The Hanlin named his granddaughter Lustrous Jade, for jade was the fairest of stones and possessed five virtues: charity, for its lustre; rectitude, for its translucence; wisdom, for its purity of sound when struck; equity, for its sharp edges that injure none; courage, for it can be broken but not bent. - Author: Bette Bao Lord

#134. Somewhere along the way, there develops within the soul a yearning that can no longer be ignored, a craving for the great love affair. We feel it drawing ever closer. It is the greatest of them all. It cannot fail. It is all consuming. It is incomparable. It is the love affair with our own true nature and the source from which it comes. The desire is in all of us but, more often than not, it is ignored for other interests. We wrestle with each interest, trying to make it work, growing with each adventure until the light has grown bright enough for us to reach for it. - Author: Donna Goddard
Wisdom quotes by Donna Goddard

#137. God, in his infinite wisdom, hid Hell in the middle of Paradise, to keep us on our toes. - Author: Paulo Coelho
Wisdom quotes by Paulo Coelho
#138. The secret of wisdom is to be overly curious, like a cat--to take the time to look closely, to use all your senses to see and to touch and to taste and to smell and to hear, and to die because you were overly curious. To keep on wondering...about the afterlife. That is our only mission. Only one. If we don't wonder, then we will never, ever be curious. Then, if like the cat, you wondered too far...you simply no longer will have to ever wonder again. Your mission will be fulfilled. All because of curiosity.

#140. The message of the United States is not nuclear power. The message of the United States is a spiritual message.

Humphrey

#148. Ego is a social institution with no physical reality. The ego is simply your symbol of yourself.

Watts
Wisdom quotes by Alan W. Watts

When I see chance, I see the present.
When I see destiny, I see the future.

When I see knowledge, I see the past.

When I see elders, I see the past.
When I see adults, I see the present.
When I see children, I see the future. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#150. Prayer is the opening of the heart so we can receive all these good things that God has for us every day. It's like sitting down at a table that God has prepared for us.

Don't be so rushed and so busy and try to live without My supply.' - Author: Jim Cymbala
Wisdom quotes by Jim Cymbala

And that life has always been, and will always be, arising in Mystery. - Author: Socrates

#158. You have a minute and a half left."
"Fine," she snapped. "Then I'll reduce this conversation to one single fact. Today I had six callers. Six! Can you recall the last time I had six callers?"
Anthony just stared at her blankly.
"I can't," Daphne continued, in fine form now. "Because it has never happened. Six men marched up our steps, knocked on our door, and gave Humboldt their cards. Six men brought me flowers, engaged me in conversation, and one even recited poetry."
Simon winced.
"And do you know why?" she demanded, her voice rising dangerously. "Do you?"
Anthony, in his somewhat belatedly arrived wisdom, held his tongue.
"It is all because he" - she jabbed her forefinger toward Simon - "was kind enough to feign interest in me last night at Lady Danbury's ball. - Author: Julia Quinn
Wisdom quotes by Julia Quinn
#159. It would be an act of wisdom to depart immediately… but wisdom is itself the product of knowledge; and knowledge, unfortunately, is generally the product of foolish doings. So, to add to my own knowledge and to enhance my wisdom I shall remain another day, to see what occurs. - Author: Roger Zelazny
Wisdom quotes by Roger Zelazny
#160. I miss her | & not the type of missing when you're alone, not the type when you're broken down half drunk, not even the type when you know she's the one. I'm talking about the kind of missing that when you're full of happiness…you wish they were there to enjoy it. I don't care if we're not together, I don't care if I never see her again. All that I will every know is I'm here smiling & I know how much she'd like to see that. - Author: Brandon Villasenor
Wisdom quotes by Brandon Villasenor
#161. Writing isn't about creating perfect characters. There's no such thing. It's about creating characters that are real; flawed
yet beautiful, in that they know they need another person. Needing someone else doesn't make them weak; if they believed all they needed was them self, they would be. A strong heroine isn't afraid to admit that a best friend, or soul mate, is exactly what they need at one moment or another. A strong heroine never stands alone. They stand tall; they believe in who they are. They are perfect in every human flaw, because as humans we are flawed. And in every flaw, I see the perfection of their souls. Writers breath life into simple words and create beings
flaws and all. - Author: Cassandra Giovanni
Wisdom quotes by Cassandra Giovanni

#167. It's only useful to ask, what wisdom have you learned from your misjudgments that will help you going forward? - Author: David Brooks
Wisdom quotes by David Brooks
#168. Wisdom is neither good nor bad, male nor female, Christian or pagan: she is no one's personal possession. The Goddess of Wisdom reaches down to the depths of our need. Her simple being is so vastly present that we have not noticed it. Indeed, we have not known the depths of our need nor that any assuaging wisdom was near at hand. - Author: Caitlín Matthews
Wisdom quotes by Caitlín Matthews
#169. I thought of my father's wisdom, as though it were buried in a box under a tree. As in the old song - a gold box with a silver pin. Some day I should be grown up, and I should dig up the box and turn the pin. - Author: Mary Butts

This type of man who is devoted to the study of wisdom is always most unlucky in everything, and particularly when it comes to procreating children; I imagine this is because Nature wants to ensure that the evils of wisdom shall not spread further throughout mankind. - Author: Desiderius Erasmus
Wisdom quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#173. To trust yourself is to trust Silence. To trust your own heart is to trust the wisdom that is radiating and shining. All the thoughts, feelings, desires, and fears are just a superimposition that is called 'myself.' When all that disappears, for at least a moment, your Self shines forth. Radiantly, clear, and empty. Needing nothing, nourished, and overflowing. - Author: Eli Jaxon-Bear
Wisdom quotes by Eli Jaxon-Bear
#174. Tranquility, compassion, and wisdom are the components of fearlessness, not power, control, and remaining unaffected. - Author: Susan Piver
Wisdom quotes by Susan Piver
#175. Women particularly should concern themselves with peace because men by nature are more foolhardy and headstrong, and their overwhelming desire to avenge themselves prevents them from foreseeing the resulting dangers and terrors of war. But woman by nature is more gentle and circumspect. Therefore, if she has sufficient will and wisdom she can provide the best possible means to pacify man. - Author: Christine De Pizan
Wisdom quotes by Christine De Pizan

#179. …The heavens could not bear my debt
And wrote me as a madman in my fate.
But lovers bled their hearts
And on the face of the Beloved
Did a beauty spot create.

The fire that burns
In the flame of the lamp
Is not the fire;
It burns in the essence of
The moth and consumes him entire… - Author: Hafiz Shirazi

#184. Your inability to see the wisdom in someone else is not a reflection on their lack of perspicacity, it is a reflection on yours. - Author: Ilyas Kassam
Wisdom quotes by Ilyas Kassam
#185. When I was a child, the lessons my father taught me had been about perseverance, never to accept limitations that stood in my way. As an adult, watching him in his final years, I also saw how to come to terms with limits that couldn't simply be wished away. When to shift from pushing against limits to making the best of them is not often readily apparent. But it is clear that are times when the cost of pushing exceeds its value. Helping my father through the struggle to define that moment was simultaneously among the most painful and most privileged experiences of my life. Part of the way my father handled the limits he faced was by looking at them without illusion. Though his circumstances sometimes got him down, he never pretended they were better than they were. He always understood that life is short and one's place in the world is small. But he also saw himself as a link in a chain of history. - Author: Atul Gawande
Wisdom quotes by Atul Gawande
#186. To wisely live your life, you don't need to know much

Wisdom quotes by Yehuda Berg
#191. The ultimate Truth is so simple. It is nothing more than being in the pristine state.

#196. One last mystery: on one of the little ponds, this morning, I saw wind riffling the first of the waterlily leaves. They haven't all emerged yet, but new circles tattoo the water, here and there, a coppery red. When the wind lifted their edges, each would reveal a little shadowy spot, a dot of black which seemed to flash on the water, and so across the whole surface of the pond there was what could only be described as the inverse of sparkling; a scintillant blackness. Shining blackly, black but rippling, lyrical: the sheen and radiance of death-in-life.
