African Wisdom quotes by Will Durant
#11. If there is any intelligence guiding this universe, philosophy wishes to know and understand it and reverently work with it; if there is none, philosophy wishes to know that also, and face it without fear. If the stars are but transient coagulations of haphazard nebulae, if life is a colloidal accident, impersonally permanent and individually fleeting, if man is only a compound of chemicals, destined to disintegrate and utterly disappear, if the creative ecstasy of art, and the gentle wisdom of the sage, and the willing martyrdom of saints are but bright incidents in the protoplasmic pullulation of the earth, and death is the answer to every problem and the destiny of every soul
then philosophy will face that too, and try to find within that narrowed circle some significance and nobility for man. #Quote by Will Durant

and gurus are its graduates. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo

African Wisdom quotes by Lewis Bayly
#26. ...if thou art persuaded that God is true, why dost thou doubt of his promises? - and if thou believest that God is beauty and perfection itself, why dost not thou make him alone the chief end of all thine affections and desires? for if thou lovest beauty, he is most fair; if thou desirest riches, he is most wealthy; if thou seekest wisdom, he is most wise. Whatsoever excellency thou hast seen in any creature, it is nothing but a sparkle of that which is in infinite perfection in God... #Quote by Lewis Bayly

African Wisdom quotes by Forrest Curran
#29. Allowing both negative and positive thoughts to arise in life and acknowledging them for what they are, a secondary reaction within to what is happening outside, we grant our emotions free passage within without allowing external influences to impede our personal happiness. We cannot have control over everything that occurs in life, but that is simply not the goal, for we have control only over our relationship that we have with life. #Quote by Forrest Curran

African Wisdom quotes by Helen Keller
#35. I began my studies with eagerness. Before me I saw a new world opening in beauty and light, and I felt within me the capacity to know all things. In the wonderland of Mind I should be as free as another [with sight and hearing]. Its people, scenery, manners, joys, and tragedies should be living tangible interpreters of the real world. The lecture halls seemed filled with the spirit of the great and wise, and I thought the professors were the embodiment of wisdom... But I soon discovered that college was not quite the romantic lyceum I had imagined. Many of the dreams that had delighted my young inexperience became beautifully less and "faded into the light of common day." Gradually I began to find that there were disadvantages in going to college. The one I felt and still feel most is lack of time. I used to have time to think, to reflect, my mind and I. We would sit together of an evening and listen to the inner melodies of the spirit, which one hears only in leisure moments when the words of some loved poet touch a deep, sweet chord in the soul that until then had been silent. But in college there is no time to commune with one's thoughts. One goes to college to learn, it seems, not to think. When one enters the portals of learning, one leaves the dearest pleasures – solitude, books and imagination – outside with the whispering pines. I suppose I ought to find some comfort in the thought that I am laying up treasures for future enjoyment, but I am improvident enough to pref #Quote by Helen Keller
African Wisdom quotes by Alan Sugar
#36. Success comes more quickly to the entrepreneur that follows his instincts rather than following the progress of his competitors. #Quote by Alan Sugar
African Wisdom quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#37. Life is too short to hold grudges, plan vengeance, and be angry for too long. And people say things like that all the time, but words like that only take on their meaning when you experience someone close to you passing away. There are truly not enough minutes, hours, days, months, years, to spend any amount of time on being and doing anything other than going into the direction of your happiness. Acceptance is better than correction and joy is better than revenge. Innocent laughter is better than anger. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
African Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#38. To transform this world into a better place to live, make yourself a better person first. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
African Wisdom quotes by Dante Alighieri

African Wisdom quotes by Timothy Thomas Fortune
#42. Ours is supposed to be a government in which classes and distinctions melt into a harmonious whole. Until we reach this ideal of government, we will be a distracted, contentious people. #Quote by Timothy Thomas Fortune
African Wisdom quotes by Randall Jarrell
#43. When you begin to read a poem you are entering a foreign country whose laws and language and life are a kind of translation of your own; but to accept it because its stews taste exactly like your old mother's hash, or to reject it because the owl-headed goddess of wisdom in its temple is fatter than the Statue of Liberty, is an equal mark of that want of imagination, that inaccessibility to experience, of which each of us who dies a natural death will die. #Quote by Randall Jarrell
African Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#44. When one heart feels the other
and in harmony, love is there. #Quote by Debasish Mridha

African Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha

African Wisdom quotes by Mechthild Of Magdeburg
#47. Stupidity is sufficient unto itself. Wisdom can never learn enough. #Quote by Mechthild Of Magdeburg
African Wisdom quotes by Gottfried Leibniz
#48. I agree with you that it is important to examine our presuppositions, throughly and once for all, in order to establish something solid. For I hold that it is only when we can prove all that we bring forward that we perfectly understand the thing under consideration. I know that the common herd takes little pleasure in these researches, but I know also that the common herd take little pains thoroughly to understand things. #Quote by Gottfried Leibniz
African Wisdom quotes by Nilakanta Sri Ram
#49. Wisdom is not a question of learning facts with the mind; it can only be acquired through perfection of living. #Quote by Nilakanta Sri Ram
