Wisdom quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#1. The woodchopper reads the wisdom of the ages recorded on the paper that holds his dinner, then lights his pipe with it. When we ask for a scrap of paper for the most trivial use, it may have the confessions of Augustine or the sonnets of Shakespeare, and we not observe it. The student kindles his fire, the editor packs his trunk, the sportsman loads his gun, the traveler wraps his dinner, the Irishman papers his shanty, the schoolboy peppers the plastering, the belle pins up her hair, with the printed thoughts of men. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#2. Knocking on many doors is strength;
knocking on the right doors is wisdom. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Lee Smolin
#3. Just like an ordinary guitar string, a fundamental string can vibrate in different modes. And it is these different modes of vibration of the string that are understood in string theory as being the different elementary particles. #Quote by Lee Smolin
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#4. Love is waiting for you lifting to hand, open your heart, and accept it. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#5. After everything I'd lived through, I was not going to be reduced to a one-sentence definition. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Wisdom quotes by Will Advise
#6. A poem to Raymond, whom everybody loves, originally composed on a waterproof smartphone in a sea of love, which was hidden under the pile of garbage that my bum-pals that have no pen names, or pen-pals, or names, for that matter, brought to me as an offering on the 1st of April 1877, exactly 111 years and 7 months before I was brought forth to this world, because some anonymous prophet told them this would bring luck, joy, happiness, food, and, of course – shelter from evil (he was lying):

If it's fantasy you seek,
to E. Feist then, you must speak.
All he writes is all there is,
for his words, they move the seas.
I would write, but I know naught.
In my heart there is a draught.
Hidden desert - golden sands.
Few my love can ever stand.

And so far I've talked to many,
a reply - will there be any?
I know - not, yet I know naught,
all to question, I was taught...

So I learn, I borrow wisdom,
from the great, the ones with vision.
They can teach, the few that grasp,
concepts from a long forgotten past. #Quote by Will Advise
Wisdom quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#7. Practicing a thousand yoga postures, doesn't make a person spiritual, nor does uttering "aum" or "hallelujah" a thousand times - what makes a person spiritual, is plain ordinary everyday act of kindness. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Wisdom quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#8. Remaining quiet is what is called wisdom-insight. To remain quiet is to resolve the mind in the Self. Telepathy, knowing past, present and future happenings and clairvoyance do not constitute wisdom-insight. #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Wisdom quotes by Joseph Prince
#9. Anyone who doesn't focus on Jesus Christ and His finished work has neither the wisdom of God nor the power of God ... #Quote by Joseph Prince

Wisdom quotes by Sivananda
#12. Money can help you to get medicines but not health. Money can help you to get soft pillows, but not sound sleep. Money can help you to get material comforts, but not eternal bliss. Money can help you to get ornaments, but not beauty. Money will help you to get an electric earphone, but not natural hearing. Attain the supreme wealth, wisdom; you will have everything. #Quote by Sivananda
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#13. You are my eternal love and I am your eternal beloved. That is the truth I came to believe. #Quote by Debasish Mridha

Wisdom quotes by Colin Powell

Wisdom quotes by Dr. Seuss
#20. My uncle ordered popovers from the restaurant's bill of fare. And, when they were served, he regarded them with a penetrating stare. Then he spoke great words of wisdom as he sat there on that chair: "To eat these things," said my uncle, "You must exercise great care. You may swallow down what's solid, but you must spit out the air!" And as you partake of the world's bill of fare, that's darned good advice to follow. Do a lot of spitting out the hot air. And be careful what you swallow. #Quote by Dr. Seuss
Wisdom quotes by Margaret Atwood
#21. God gave unto the Animals A wisdom past our power to see: Each knows innately how to live, Which we must learn laboriously. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Wisdom quotes by Matt Perman
#22. When you don't have your work clearly defined, there can never be any finish point. #Quote by Matt Perman
Wisdom quotes by H. Rider Haggard
#23. Knowledge is to the strong, and we are weak. Too much wisdom would perchance blind our imperfect sight, and too much strength would make us drunk, and overweight our feeble reason till it fell, and we were drowned in the depths of our own vanity. #Quote by H. Rider Haggard
Wisdom quotes by Ana Claudia Antunes
#24. It's not about binary but awareness of Oneness riddle. Between two extremes I choose the way in the middle. #Quote by Ana Claudia Antunes

Wisdom quotes by Henry Kuttner
#26. A long time ago I lived in Lisbon,' she said, in softly slurred Portuguese that made the name of the city Leesh-boa. 'But before that, meus neto, my tribe was in the mountains where there are only old things, like the trees and the rocks and the streams. There are truths to be learned from the old things -' She hesitated, and her brown, shrunken claw closed over Pete's hand. 'Do you know the truth, Pedrinho?'
("Before I Wake ... ") #Quote by Henry Kuttner
Wisdom quotes by Seneca.
#27. How many men soever you slay, you will never kill your successor. #Quote by Seneca.
Wisdom quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#28. It's tempting to tether ourselves to the familiar comfort of the way things are, but fulfillment is often discovered in the unpredictable and unknown. We can serve ourselves and our universe, best, when we can take the journey that takes us from the limited desire of our ego, to the ever-expanding love and wisdom, of our divine nature. #Quote by Jaeda DeWalt
Wisdom quotes by Josh Cathey

Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#31. I would rather be a fearless fox than a cowardly lion. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Pirkei Avot
#32. Compassion is the feeling of sympathy which the pain of one being awakens in another; and the higher and more human the beings are, the more keenly attuned they are to re-echo the note of suffering, which, like a voice from heaven, penetrates the heart, bringing all creatures a proof of their kinship in the universal God. And as for man, whose function it is to show respect and love for God's universe and all its creatures, his heart has been created so tender that it feels with the whole organic world ... mourning even for fading flowers; so that, if nothing else, the very nature of his heart must teach him that he is required above everything to fe the brother of all beings, and to recognize the claim of all beings to his love and his beneficence.
Horeb, Chapter 17, Verse 125 #Quote by Pirkei Avot
Wisdom quotes by Frederick Lenz

Wisdom quotes by Gautama Buddha
#42. Those who attempt to conquer hatred by hatred are like warriors who take weapons to overcome others who bear arms. This does not end hatred, but gives it room to grow. But, ancient wisdom has advocated a different timeless strategy to overcome hatred. This eternal wisdom is to meet hatred with non-hatred. The method of trying to conquer hatred through hatred never succeeds in overcoming hatred. But, the method of overcoming hatred through non-hatred is eternally effective. That is why that method is described as eternal wisdom. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Wisdom quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#43. We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Wisdom quotes by Idries Shah
#44. I will not serve God like a labourer, in expectation of my wages. #Quote by Idries Shah
Wisdom quotes by Forrest Curran
#45. Whether between man and women, man and man, or woman and woman; look not towards any system that binds society created by man for guidance, but be guided by the principles of love. Love is the only law that commands this universe, and is the only language that is understood universally. #Quote by Forrest Curran
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#46. Our eyes are open to see wisdom.
Our ears are open to hear wisdom.
Our minds are open to gain wisdom.
Our hearts are open to store wisdom.
Our souls are open to practice wisdom.
Our lives are open to magnify wisdom. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#47. The simplest and the most incredible thing in the world had come true again: two people speaking to each other, each for himself; and sounds, called words, shaped the same images and feelings in that palpitating mass behind the skull, and out of meaningless vibrations of the vocal chords and their unexplainable reactions in the viscous gray convolutions, skies suddenly grew again in which were mirrored clouds, brooks, past times, growth and decay and hard-won wisdom. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Wisdom quotes by Michael Munro
#48. In that light, philosophy is not so much
or not simply
'the love of wisdom,' but instead marks the passage from wonder as a noun to wonder as a verb. Philosophy is the love of wisdom to the extent that it remains an incitement to it. #Quote by Michael Munro
Wisdom quotes by Pope Francis
#49. Fathers are so necessary as examples and guides for our children in wisdom and virtue. Without father figures, young people often feel orphaned; left adrift at a critical moment in their growth and development. #Quote by Pope Francis
Wisdom quotes by Chael Sonnen
#50. The only people with six packs are teenagers and drug addicts. #Quote by Chael Sonnen
Wisdom quotes by Samuel Johnson
#51. Though the wisdom or virtue of one can very rarely make many happy, the folly or vice of one man often make many miserable. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Wisdom quotes by Alexis Karpouzos
#52. Every flower and insect, every bird, and all the creatures that live upon the land and swim within the rivers and seas, are part of the Tree of Life. You are connected to the whole of life. Whatever happens to the myriad forms of life in the world around you, has a direct affect on you'. #Quote by Alexis Karpouzos
Wisdom quotes by Deborah L. Parker
#53. In this shifting landscape, we may tend to forget "what the old folks say." Most of us probably now realize that our ancestors did indeed have it right! Their common-sense ways allowed them to get through the worst of conditions throughout history and still we thrive from their bold undertakings. #Quote by Deborah L. Parker
Wisdom quotes by Erin Fall Haskell
#54. Deep inside of you is a 'Guru' with the wisdom of the entire Universe! #Quote by Erin Fall Haskell
Wisdom quotes by Gabriel Brunsdon
#55. The strange thing about magic is how easily one can feel familiar with it. Much like a dream, its message can infill the senses of the soul and persuade the consciousness in a way that is undeniable. As intoxicating as the musk of romance and as enlightening as the whispers of hidden wisdom, magic can take you back into the very realm of your childhood ... and leave you there. #Quote by Gabriel Brunsdon
Wisdom quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#56. Who, under pressing temptations to lie, adheres to truth, nor to the profane betrays aught of a sacred trust, is near the summit of wisdom and virtue. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater
Wisdom quotes by Tehya Sky

Wisdom quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#58. Wisdom is not only to be acquired, but enjoyed. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Wisdom quotes by Erica Olsen
#59. People become librarians because they know too much. Their knowledge
extends beyond mere categories. They cannot be confined to disciplines.
They bring order to chaos. They bring wisdom and culture to the masses.
Librarians rule. And they will kick the crap out of anyone who says
otherwise. #Quote by Erica Olsen
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#60. Hope keeps us alive. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Sylvain Reynard

Wisdom quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#62. The light shines in the soul, awaken the spirit and gives clearer sight. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita

Wisdom quotes by C.S. Lewis

Wisdom quotes by Louise L. Hay

Wisdom quotes by Kerry Lynne
#67. Wisdom of the ages you seek, lad? I offer but one word: treasure. At what price does this treasure come, you ask, for not all does silver and gold make? If it be treasure you seek then you are a pirate! #Quote by Kerry Lynne
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#68. Life is worth living to reveal the beauties of life. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#69. Your ears hear much,
but your heart hears more.
Your eyes see much,
but your mind sees more.
Your toungue says much,
but your soul says more.
Your feet travel much,
but your imagination travels more.
Your hands do much,
but your mind does more. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#70. Understanding of growth and development in life will help us to learn to take our pace in everything we do and to create better results. #Quote by Euginia Herlihy
Wisdom quotes by Heinrich Himmler
#71. Mohammed knew that most people are terribly cowardly and stupid. That is why he promised two beautiful women to every courageous warrior who dies in battle. This is the kind of language a soldier understands. When he believes that he will be welcomed in this manner in the afterlife, he will be willing to give his life, he will be enthusiastic about going to battle and not fear death. You may call this primitive and you may laugh about it, but it is based on deeper wisdom. A religion must speak a man's language. #Quote by Heinrich Himmler
Wisdom quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#72. Dancing daily is a good physical activity. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wisdom quotes by Noha Alaa El-Din

Wisdom quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#75. Real democracy is only possible when people truly imbibe democratic principles and respect ethical values above everything else. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Wisdom quotes by Gary Gach
#76. Mindfulness isn't necessarily about awakening within. Awakening wisdom teaches me how my exterior and interior life are not separate. What happens in the world is happening within me, and vice versa. #Quote by Gary Gach
Wisdom quotes by Cheryl Hamada
#77. Listen with your heart, listen to your inner voice of wisdom, listen to your dreams. You know what is right for you. #Quote by Cheryl Hamada
Wisdom quotes by Ozren Kebo
#78. It is sometimes better to be lucky than to be smart; only luck can save us from the stupidity our wisdom can come up with. #Quote by Ozren Kebo
Wisdom quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
#79. Whatever others may say, they say it to deceive and comfort themselves, not help you. #Quote by Dejan Stojanovic
Wisdom quotes by Woody Allen
#80. I've gained no wisdom, no insight, no mellowing. I would make all the same mistakes again, today. #Quote by Woody Allen
Wisdom quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
#81. The world is darkness; knowledge is light; but knowledge without truth is a mere shadow. #Quote by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Wisdom quotes by Nanavira Thera
#82. A man may take his own life for many reasons, and it is impossible to make a general statement; but whenever suicide is a gesture - done, that is, to impress or influence or embarrass others - it is always, so it seems to me, a sign of immaturity and muddled thinking. However much we may admire the fortitude of this Vietnamese monk, the wisdom of his action remains very much in doubt. I do not know the details of the provocation offered by the Catholic Head of State, but the monk appears to have killed himself 'fighting for the cause of Buddhism'. Certainly this action is infinitely more honourable than the setting fire to churches and the crowning of statues that seem to be the favoured methods of giving battle in this country; but it does not follow that it is any the less misguided. #Quote by Nanavira Thera
Wisdom quotes by Kathleen Tessaro
#83. There's an art to life. Some people have talent for it. A boundless hope illuminates them. Where others are vague and tentative, they have only sharp, clear edges. Energy soars; lights burn brighter when they enter a room. #Quote by Kathleen Tessaro
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#84. Life is the most beautiful dance on the most beautiful stage we call Earth. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#85. You cannot reap where you have not sown. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Wisdom quotes by William Shakespeare
#86. Antioch, farewell! for wisdom sees, those men blush not in actions blacker than the night, will 'schew no course to keep them from the light. One sin, I know, another doth provoke; Murder's as near to lust as flame to smoke. Poison and treason are the hands of sin; Ay, and the targets to put off the shame. Then, lest my life be cropped to keep you clear, By flight I'll shun the danger which I fear. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Wisdom quotes by Nicolas Gomez Davila
#87. Wisdom consists in being moderate not out of horror of excess, but out of love for the limit. #Quote by Nicolas Gomez Davila
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#88. Peace is the only destination worth searching for. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Terry Goodkind
#89. Kahlan guide me. Kahlan teach me. Kahlan protect me. In your light I thrive. In your mercy I am sheltered. In your wisdom I am humbled. I live only to love you. My life is yours. #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Wisdom quotes by John Plamenatz
#90. The store of wisdom does not consist
of hard coins which keep their shape
as they pass from hand to hand;
it consists of ideas and doctrines
whose meanings change
with the minds that entertain them. #Quote by John Plamenatz
Wisdom quotes by Giovannie De Sadeleer
#91. Never give up on someone who is having a bad day. Tomorrow could be yours. #Quote by Giovannie De Sadeleer
Wisdom quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
#92. Our lives are encumbered with the dead wood of this past; all that is dead and has served its purpose has to go. But that does not mean a break with, or a forgetting of, the vital and life-giving in that past. We can never forget the ideals that have moved our race, the dreams of the Indian people through the ages, the wisdom of the ancients, the buoyant energy and love of life and nature of our forefathers, their spirit of curiosity and mental adventure, the daring of their thought, their splendid achievements in literature, art and culture, their love of truth and beauty and freedom, the basic values that they set up, their understanding of life's mysterious ways, their toleration of other ways than theirs, their capacity to absorb other peoples and their cultural accomplishments, to synthesize them and develop a varied and mixed culture; nor can we forget the myriad experiences which have built up our ancient race and lie embedded in our sub-conscious minds. We will never forget them or cease to take pride in that noble heritage of ours. If India forgets them she will no longer remain India and much that has made her our joy and pride will cease to be. #Quote by Jawaharlal Nehru
Wisdom quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
#93. Some people complain there are too many people on earth,
Some people complain about secret societies,
Some people accuse others of not being able to wake up early.
Almost all people complain about something. #Quote by Dejan Stojanovic
Wisdom quotes by Heraclitus
#94. Time is a game played beautifully by children. #Quote by Heraclitus
Wisdom quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#95. If you do not seek the truth by yourself, you will be misled. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wisdom quotes by John Greenleaf Whittier
#96. The child must teach the man. #Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier
Wisdom quotes by Pema Chodron
#97. It's helpful to always remind yourself that meditation is about opening and relaxing withwhatever arises, without picking and choosing. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Wisdom quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#98. By day, contrary to common wisdom, you probably won't see the Great Pyramids at Giza, and you certainly won't see the Great Wall of China. Their obscurity is partly the result of having been made from the soil and stone of the surrounding landscape. And although the Great Wall is thousands of miles long, it's only about twenty feet wide - much narrower than the U.S. interstate highways you can barely see from a transcontinental jet.

From orbit, with the unaided eye, you would have seen smoke plumes rising from the oil-field fires in Kuwait at the end of the first Persian Gulf War in 1991 and smoke from the burning World Trade Center towers in New York City on September 11, 2001. You will also notice the green–brown boundaries between swaths of irrigated and arid land. Beyond that shortlist, there's not much else made by humans that's identifiable from hundreds of miles up in the sky. You can see plenty of natural scenery, though, including hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico, ice floes in the North Atlantic, and volcanic eruptions wherever they occur. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Wisdom quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#99. People will always believe what they want to believe, about you. This is due to the fact that people wish to create their own truths; anything but the truth that's real. My creed is simple: Let them! Their beliefs don't alter your truth. Moreover, your attempt at altering them won't do any good for you. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Wisdom quotes by Mohammed Sekouty
#100. Adopt your own view and adapt with others' views #Quote by Mohammed Sekouty
Wisdom quotes by T. S. Eliot
#101. We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Wisdom quotes by Maria Woodworth-Etter
#102. Still I made one excuse after another, and Jesus would answer, 'Go, and I will be with you' ... Then Jesus said again, 'Go, and I will be with you.' I cried, 'Lord, I will go. Where shall I go?' And Jesus said, 'Go here, go there, wherever souls are perishing.' Praise the Lord for his wonderful goodness in revealing his word and will in such a wonderful way, to such a poor weak worm of the dust. I saw more in that vision than I could have learned in years of hard study. Praise His Holy Name. I saw that I must not depend on anything that I could do, but to look to Him for strength and wisdom. #Quote by Maria Woodworth-Etter
Wisdom quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert

Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#105. Greatness demands great courage. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Nick Cave
#106. At some point you start seeing the difference between what you really want, and what is your priority order. I feel that today I know what I want. That's the problem with perspective, as well as focus and concentration. #Quote by Nick Cave
Wisdom quotes by Baden Powell De Aquino
#107. Fun, fighting, and feeding! These are the three indispensable elements of the boy's world. #Quote by Baden Powell De Aquino

Wisdom quotes by Al-Ghazali
#109. The mere physical man is like the ant crawling on the paper, who observes black lettering and attributes its production to the pen and nothing more. #Quote by Al-Ghazali
Wisdom quotes by Muhammad
#110. The strong is not the one who is physically powerful, but indeed, the one who controls himself when angry. #Quote by Muhammad
Wisdom quotes by Ann Rinaldi

Wisdom quotes by Tehya Sky
#114. We cannot see the beauty of life with our eyes closed. Only when we cry with our eyes open can we begin to shed tears of joy. #Quote by Tehya Sky
Wisdom quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#115. A warrior considers himself already dead, so there is nothing to lose. The worst has already happened to him, therefore he's clear and calm; judging him by his acts or by his words, one would never suspect that he has witnessed everything. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Wisdom quotes by Panache Desai
#116. When you are embodying your Essential Self, any choice you make is the right one, in all scenarios. There is no room for complaints or uncertainty. #Quote by Panache Desai
Wisdom quotes by Debasish Mridha
#117. Your life is a journey, so take it with love and joy. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Charles Le Gai Eaton
#118. So many ruins bear witness to good intentions which went astray, good intentions unenlightened by any glimmer of wisdom. To bring religion to the people is a fine and necessary undertaking, but this is not a situation in which the proposed end can be said to justify the means. The further people have drifted from the truth, the greater is the temptation to water down the truth, glossing over its less palatable aspects and, in short, allowing a policy of compromise to become one of adulteration. In this way it is hoped that the common man – if he can be found – will be encouraged to find a small corner in his busy life for religion without having to change his ways or to grapple with disturbing thoughts. It is a forlorn hope. Standing, as it were, at the pavement's edge with his tray of goods, the priest reduces the price until he is offering his wares for nothing: divine judgement is a myth, hell a wicked superstition, prayer less important than decent behaviour, and God himself dispensable in the last resort; and still the passers-by go their way, sorry over having to ignore such a nice man but with more important matters demanding their attention. And yet these matters with which they are most urgently concerned are, for so many of them, quicksands in which they feel themselves trapped. Had they been offered a real alternative, a rock firm-planted from the beginning of time, they might have been prepared to pay a high price. #Quote by Charles Le Gai Eaton
Wisdom quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#119. All sorrows in life stem from the lack of cake. If you had your own cake, you wouldn't bother trying to take away the other person's cake! And, if the cake you had were beautiful enough, you wouldn't bother trying to melt the icing on that other person's cake! And if you always had a very beautiful cake that was always beautiful enough, then you would have a smile on your face all the time and wouldn't even care if other people were enjoying their own cakes! Because you'd be enjoying yours, too! Therefore, I hereby decree that all sorrows can be fixed by many beautiful cakes! Bake a cake! #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Wisdom quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando

#121. The mystery and art of living are as grand as the sweep of a lifetime and the lifetime of a species. And they are as close as beginning, quietly, to mine whatever grace and beauty, whatever healing and attentiveness, are possible in this moment and the next and the next one after that. #Quote by Krista Tippett
Wisdom quotes by Wu Wei
#122. The path that one person follows is not the correct path for any other person. Each of us must walk his own path to enlightenment - that is the way. #Quote by Wu Wei
Wisdom quotes by Caroline Adams Miller

You are on the path ... exactly where you are meant to be right now ... And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love. #Quote by Caroline Adams Miller

Wisdom quotes by D. Elton Trueblood
#128. Our religion is one which challenges the ordinary human standards by holding that the ideal of life is the spirit of a little child. We tend to glorify adulthood and wisdom and worldly prudence, but the Gospel reverses all this. The Gospel says that the inescapable condition of entrance into the divine fellowship is that we turn and become as a little child. #Quote by D. Elton Trueblood
Wisdom quotes by Drew Gerald
#129. Om is said to be a four-syllable word in Sanskrit, originally as AUM. A, the waking state. U, the dream state. M, the unconscious state. And the fourth, the silence that surrounds it - wherefrom everything arises and whereto everything inevitably returns.

It is the silence that surrounds om that contains everything. It is the silence in your own life that contains and gives birth to everything you have, and everything you will ever need.

It is this same silence we avoid, overlook, and disregard as nothing. The white space of life we abhor. We fill our lives with noise, drama, screens, people, and "stuff" to avoid the void that reminds us of our truth - that beyond flesh that once was not, and will inescapably become not, we are eternal. #Quote by Drew Gerald
Wisdom quotes by Hafez
#130. When all your desires are distilled; You will cast just two votes: To love more, And be happy. #Quote by Hafez

Wisdom quotes by Joe Matlock
#134. Regardless of one's background - race, culture or gender, education is a great equalizer. #Quote by Joe Matlock
Wisdom quotes by Joseph Conrad
#135. The artist descends within himself, and in that lonely region of stress and strife, if he be deserving and fortunate, he finds the terms of his appeal. His appeal is made to our less obvious capacities: to that part of our nature which, because of the warlike conditions of existence, is necessarily kept out of sight within the more resisting and hard qualities ... His appeal is less loud, more profound, less distinct, more stirring - and sooner forgotten. Yet its effect endures forever ... the artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on wisdom: to that in us which is a gift and not an acquisition - and, therefore, more permanently enduring. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Wisdom quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#136. Would I fortify myself against the fear of death, it must be at the expense of Seneca: would I extract consolation for myself or my friend, I must borrow it from Cicero. I might have found it in myself, had I been trained to make use of my own reason. I do not like this relative and mendicant understanding; for though we could become learned by other men's learning, a man can never be wise but by his own wisdom. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Wisdom quotes by Rufus King

#139. It's bad taste to be wise all the time, like being at a perpetual funeral. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Wisdom quotes by Erin Pavlina
#140. When you are in the ether you remember that you are a part of consciousness and that you are being sent out into the world to experience, learn, and grow. You know that physical life is temporary, and that the pain and adversity you face as a physical being is but a moment in your existence. Why do people choose to enter a life that is filled with pain and torment? Because from the perspective of the ether, any pain or adversity is but a blip of discomfort in the grand scheme of things. It's like asking if you are willing to suffer a paper cut in order to gain vast wisdom and knowledge and tremendous personal growth. When we incarnate, we forget that, so yeah, it can be extremely difficult to understand why horrible things happen to you and even more disconcerting to think you chose for it to happen! This is why I feel it is so important to remember where we came from. When you remember that this life is temporary and that your goal is growth, it can make even the most horrible conditions bearable. #Quote by Erin Pavlina
Wisdom quotes by Nora Ephron
#141. It's always hard to remember love - years pass and you say to yourself, Was I really in love, or was I just kidding myself? Was I really in love, or was I just pretending he was the man of my dreams? Was I really in love, or was I just desperate? #Quote by Nora Ephron
Wisdom quotes by Colette Parrino

#145. Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, conduct pleasing to you, faithful perseverance in waiting for you, and a hope of finally embracing you. Amen. #Quote by Thomas Aquinas
Wisdom quotes by Ivan Alexander Pozo-Illas
#146. For those who seek a lifestyle of meaning served by purpose than listen well. To live rightly is a grace from
God(dess) of the Most High. Albeit it is not meant to be an easy feat either in its pursuit. To live a life of well being one must find a balance that is appropriate to one's own purpose in life. Once found and understood correctly, then one can live by such a hallmark of fortitude. Otherwise one will wander far and wide in a haze of confusion not valuing themselves truly. Find your balance and it will lead you back to yourself and God(dess) awaiting you with open arms. Amen. #Quote by Ivan Alexander Pozo-Illas

Wisdom quotes by Mark Van Doren
#153. There are two statements about human beings that are true: that all human beings are alike, and that all are different. On those two facts all human wisdom is founded. #Quote by Mark Van Doren
Wisdom quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#154. Speak well of the sun, but know that it can harm you;
when enraged, it is pitiless. Speak well of the ocean, but know that it can injure you; when angry, it is merciless. Speak well of the wind, but know that it can wound you; when provoked, it is ruthless. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo

Wisdom quotes by Vincent De Paul
#156. It is a maxim of ours to work in the service of the people, with the good pleasure of the pastors, and never to act contrary to their wishes. And, at the opening and closing of each mission, we get their blessing in a spirit of dependence. #Quote by Vincent De Paul

Wisdom quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#158. When people are broken on the outside, society is taught to never be rude to them. When people are broken on the inside, society is taught to rub happiness in their faces and show them how perfect life should be. When someone has half of an arm, you are not supposed to go up to them and show them how great of an arm wrestler you are. But when someone has a broken mind or a broken soul, you're taught to go up to them and tell them to look for joy in everything. Society has a very long way to go in terms of what it means to heal this world's broken people. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Wisdom quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#159. It is an axiom in my mind, that our liberty can never be safe but in the hands of the people themselves, and that too of the people with a certain degree of instruction. This it is the business of the State to effect, and on a general plan. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson

#161. Imagination is the stepping-stone for the new exciting creations. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Wisdom quotes by Osho
#162. You are always afraid that somebody may think you a fool. You are afraid that if others think you to be a fool, you will start suspecting it. If so many people think you a fool your self-confidence will be lost. And if everybody goes on repeating that you are a fool, sooner or later you will come to believe it.

Only a wise man cannot be deceived, he can appear as a fool.

Have you observed yourself? You are always trying to exhibit your wisdom, always in search of a victim to whom you can show your knowledge, just searching, hunting for somebody weaker than you – then you will jump in and you will show your wisdom.
A wise man need not be an exhibitionist. Whatsoever is, is. He is not aware of it, he is not in any hurry to show it. If you want to find it, you will have to make efforts. If you have to know whether he is gentle or not, that is going to be your discovery. #Quote by Osho
Wisdom quotes by Al-Ghazali
#163. Remember your contemporaries who have passed away and were your age. Remember the honors and fame they earned, the high posts they held, and the beautiful bodies they possessed. Today all of them are turned to dust. They have left orphans and widows behind them, their wealth is being wasted, and their houses turned into ruins.
No sign of them is left today, and they lie in dark holes underneath the earth.
Picture their faces before your mind's eye and ponder. #Quote by Al-Ghazali
Wisdom quotes by A.E. Van Vogt

#169. I rise today
with the power of God to pilot me,
God's strength to sustain me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look ahead for me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to protect me,
God's way before me,
God's shield to defend me,
God's host to deliver me,
from snares of devils,
from evil temptations,
from nature's failings,
from all who wish to harm me,
far or near,
alone and in a crowd. #Quote by "Saint Patrick's Breastplate " Old Irish Eighth-century Prayer

Wisdom quotes by Daniel McCoy
#173. But Odin had a trick up his sleeve. For his final question to Vafthrudnir, he asked, "And what, wise giant, did Odin whisper in the ear of Balder, before that great son of his was burned on the funeral pyre?"
Vafthrudnir became livid with rage. "Now I see who you really he said grimly, "for only Odin himself could know the answer that question." He clenched his teeth and his fists, and closed his eyes. When he opened them, however, his face had an expression of melancholy acceptance, and he said, "Now for the first time in my life I have lost a contest of lore. But my consolation will be that I lost it to Odin, the most knowledgeable being there is. #Quote by Daniel McCoy

Wisdom quotes by Lisa Randall
#182. A musical, like most religions, provides the audience or followers with a sense of belonging. Religious services, on the other hand, with their staged performances, invigorating songs, popular wisdom and shared experience, are almost a form of community theater. #Quote by Lisa Randall

Wisdom quotes by Orson F. Whitney
#198. We cannot judge fully of men's works by what we see, or what is said and thought of them; for man is prone to depreciate that which is really important, and to exact and extol what is trivial and of little worth. Many things which are hidden and unrecognized of human wisdom are nevertheless valuable and vitally important. #Quote by Orson F. Whitney
