Wise quotes by George Albert Smith
#8. Our feet have been planted upon this sacred soil for a wise purpose. This land has been dedicated for the blessing of mankind. The Constitution and the laws that have been enacted under its provisions are calculated to insure liberty, not license, to all who dwell here. This church with which we are identified stands, if it stands for anything, for the perpetuation of the liberties of all mankind. We should not listen to those who find pleasure in teaching sedition. Neither should we follow those who claim to be citizens of this land, who go about violating the laws that govern it. There are many who are failing to do their duty as citizens who have the right of franchise, but who are unworthy of that blessing that has come to those who live in this wonderful country. #Quote by George Albert Smith
Wise quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#9. …but I never shall be very wise, I'm afraid. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott

Wise quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#11. 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
Wise quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#12. I would rather be a fearless fox than a cowardly lion. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo

Wise quotes by Patricia A. Murphy
#15. Total seizure control for your goal may not always be wise. Sometimes it is better to contend with an occasional mild seizure than to have the constant debilitating side effects of too much medication. To the best of our knowledge, brief seizures do no brain damage." She stresses the need for the patient to share in the decision and for the physician to remember his oath: "First do no harm. #Quote by Patricia A. Murphy
Wise quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#16. All the quiet corners of the world are the great temples for the wise and for the wisdom! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Wise quotes by Paulo Coelho
#17. It was a trap. Later, if I heard the song played on the radio or at a club, i would think of him, and of a time in my life when autumn turned to spring. I would recall the excitement, the adventure, and the child who was reborn out of God knows where. That's what he was thinking. He was wise, and experienced; he knew how to woo the woman he wanted. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#18. I can feel a cool breeze. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wise quotes by Aravind Adiga
#19. He read me another poem, and another one - and he explained the true history of poetry, which is a kind of secret, a magic known only to wise men. Mr. Premier, I won't be saying anything new if I say that the history of the world is the history of a ten-thousand-year war of brains between the rich and the poor. Each side is eternally trying to hoodwink the other side: and it has been this way since the start of time. The poor win a few battles (the peeing in the potted plants, the kicking of the pet dogs, etc.) but of course the rich have won the war for ten thousand years. That's why, on day, some wise men, out of compassion for the poor, left them signs and symbols in poems, which appear to be about roses and pretty girls and things like that, but when understood correctly spill out secrets that allow the poorest man on earth to conclude the ten-thousand-year-old brain-war on terms favorable to himself. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Wise quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#20. 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
Wise quotes by Jane Austen
#21. Persuaded as Miss Bingley was that Darcy admired Elizabeth, this was not the best method of recommending herself; but angry people are not always wise; #Quote by Jane Austen
Wise quotes by Louis Cozolino
#22. Wise elders will likely be those individuals who stay both mentally and physically vital throughout life. #Quote by Louis Cozolino
Wise quotes by Patrick L.O. Lumumba
#23. You do not respond to a mosquito bite with a hammer. #Quote by Patrick L.O. Lumumba
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#24. Life is a great Book. We are writing the history of our time. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wise quotes by Lewis H. Lapham
#25. If in the well and truly made martini DeVoto finds "water of life" and the blessing to the spirit, so also DeVoto's The Hour brings to its readers the breath of life and a vision of themselves made generous, indomitable and wise. #Quote by Lewis H. Lapham
Wise quotes by Stockwell Day
#26. I wish the government and the Minister of Justice would address these legal and constitutional arguments, but they refuse to. They want Canadians to go blindly into their brave new world, but it is not wise for a society to move blindly in any direction. #Quote by Stockwell Day
Wise quotes by Santosh Kalwar
#27. For you, I am like a child. For others, I am very wise. #Quote by Santosh Kalwar
Wise quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#28. A good book is a lighthouse; a wise man is a lighthouse; conscience is a lighthouse; compassion is a lighthouse; science is a lighthouse! They all show us the true path! Keep them in your life to remain safe in the rocky and dark waters of life! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Wise quotes by John Owen
#29. Prosperity hath slain the foolish and wounded the wise. #Quote by John Owen
Wise quotes by Seneca.
#30. Living is not good, but living well.
the wise man lives as well as he should, not as long as he could ...
he will always think of life in terms of quality; not quantity ...
dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ills ...
even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be at any cost. #Quote by Seneca.
Wise quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#31. Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Wise quotes by Gore Vidal
#32. I confess to not having listened to a word of the Declaration of Independence. At the time I barely knew the name of the author of this sublime document. I do remember hearing someone comment that since Mr. Jefferson had seen fit to pledge so eloquently our lives to the cause of independence, he might at least join us in the army. But wise Tom preferred the safety of Virginia and the excitement of local politics to the discomforts and dangers of war. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#33. There is no substitute for education. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wise quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#34. The Times are the masquerade of the eternities; trivial to the dull, tokens of noble and majestic agents to the wise; the receptacle in which the Past leaves its history; the quarry out of which the genius of today is building up the Future. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wise quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#35. You think I'm playing at some game? You think iron will keep you safe? Hear my words, manling. Do not mistake me for my mask. You see light dappling on the water and forget the deep, cold dark beneath. Listen. You cannot hurt me. You cannot run or hide. In this I will not be defied.

I swear by all the salt in me: if you run counter to my desire, the remainder of your brief mortal span will be an orchestra of misery.

I swear by stone and oak and elm: I'll make a game of you. I'll follow you unseen and smother any spark of joy you find. You'll never know a woman's touch, a breath of rest, a moment's peace of mind.

And I swear by the night sky and the ever-moving moon: if you lead my master to despair, I will slit you open and splash around like a child in a muddy puddle. I'll string a fiddle with your guts and make you play it while I dance. You are an educated man. You know there are no such things as demons. There is only my kind. You are not wise enough to fear me as I should be feared. You do not know the first note of the music that moves me. -Bast #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Wise quotes by Freeman Wills Croft
#37. If we were all as wise as we should be, we would have no stories to tell #Quote by Freeman Wills Croft
Wise quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#38. You cannot reap where you have not sown. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Wise quotes by Robert Breault
#39. Always when judging Who people are, Remember to footnote The words So far. #Quote by Robert Breault
Wise quotes by Ilaxi Patel
#40. Children close their ears to Advice but Open their eyes to example.
Even New Genx Moms close their ears to Advice but Open their eyes to realize their mistakes eventually.
Think, Act Wise before it's Late. #Quote by Ilaxi Patel
Wise quotes by Keira Knightley
#41. My upbringing is why I am the person I am today. I have very wise parents. #Quote by Keira Knightley
Wise quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#42. It is far easier to be wise for others than to be so for oneself. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Wise quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#43. The theory of behavior is useful to the life of man only as the index is useful to him who goes through it before reading the book itself; when he has read it, all that he has learned is the subject matter. Such is the moral teaching that we receive from the discourses, the precepts, and the stories we are treated to by those who bring us up. We listen to it all attentively; but when we have an opportunity to profit by the various advice we have been given, we become possessed by a desire to see if the thing will turn out to be what we have been told it will; we do it, and we are punished by repentance. What recompenses us a little is that in such moments we consider ourselves wise and hence entitled to teach others. Those whom we teach do exactly as we did, from which it follows that the world always stands still or goes from bad to worse. #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
Wise quotes by Steve Maraboli
#44. A new day: Be open enough to see opportunities. Be wise enough to be grateful. Be courageous enough to be happy. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Wise quotes by Melody Lee
#45. Don't be afraid of your struggles, they are making you dangerously strong and wise. They are preparing you for your superpowers. Let them happen, otherwise you'll stay in the same damn place you've always been, and until you know there is so much more awesomeness in the world you'll be content in your tiny cocoon, spinning the same circles day in and day out. Your struggles are transforming you. #Quote by Melody Lee
Wise quotes by Ilona Andrews
#46. A wise man once said, "A human mind is the place where emotion and reason are locked in perpetual combat. Sadly for our species, emotion always wins." I really liked that quote. It explained why, even though I was reasonably intelligent, I kept finding myself doing something really stupid. And it sounded much better than "Nevada Baylor, Total Idiot. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Wise quotes by H. P. Blavatsky
#47. The myths," says Horace in his Ars Poetica, "have been invented by wise men to strengthen the laws and teach moral truths." While Horace endeavored to make clear the very spirit and essence of the ancient myths, Euhemerus pretended, on the contrary, that "myths were the legendary history of kings and heroes, transformed into gods by the admiration of the nations." It is the latter method which was inferentially followed by Christians when they agreed upon the acceptation of euhemerized patriarchs, and mistook them for men who had really lived. #Quote by H. P. Blavatsky
Wise quotes by David Wroblewski
#48. He woke one morning tantalized by an idea: if he could catch the orchard trees motionless for one second -- for half of one second -- then none of it would have happened. The kitchen door would bang open and in his father would walk, red-faced and slapping his hands and exclaiming about some newly whelped pup. Childish, Edgar knew, but he didn't care. The trick was to not focus on any single part of any tree, but to look through them all toward a point in the air. But how insidious a bargain he'd made. Even in the quietest moment some small thing quivered and the tableau was destroyed.

How many afternoons slipped away like that? How many midnights standing in the spare room, watching the trees shiver in the moonlight? Still he watched, transfixed. Then, blushing because it was futile and silly, he forced himself to walk away.

When he blinked, an afterimage of perfect stillness.

To think it might happen when he wasn't watching.

He turned back before he reached the door. Through the window glass, a dozen trees strummed by the winter wind, skeletons dancing pair-wise, fingers raised to heaven.

Stop it, he told himself. Just stop.

And watched some more. #Quote by David Wroblewski
Wise quotes by Taryn Manning
#49. I have so many songs, it's ridiculous. I love so many different types of music and tend to write all over the map, style-wise. R&B, rock 'n' roll, screamers, pop, good-time songs. #Quote by Taryn Manning
Wise quotes by James Hudson Taylor
#50. Depend on it. God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply. He is too wise a God to frustrate His purposes for lack of funds, and He can just as easily supply them ahead of time as afterwards, and He much prefers doing so. #Quote by James Hudson Taylor
Wise quotes by Melia Keeton-Digby
#51. May We Love Ourselves.
May We Love Each Other.
May We Believe that Our Dreams Can Come True.
We Are Strong.
We Are Wise.
We Are the Heroines of our Own Lives
-The Heroine's Club benediction #Quote by Melia Keeton-Digby
Wise quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#52. 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
Wise quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#53. It's bad taste to be wise all the time, like being at a perpetual funeral. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Wise quotes by Gautama Buddha
#54. Therefore, do not eat meat which will cause terror among people, because it hinders the truth of emancipation; not to eat meat? this is the mark of the wise. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Wise quotes by Anonymous
#55. And his reason? To show to all the rulers in heaven how perfectly wise he is when all of his family - Jews and Gentiles alike - are seen to be joined together in his Church 11 in just the way he had always planned it through Jesus Christ our Lord. #Quote by Anonymous
Wise quotes by William James
#56. At bottom, the whole concern of religion is with the manner of our acceptance of the universe. #Quote by William James
Wise quotes by Albert Einstein
#57. The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Wise quotes by Lao Tzu
#58. Those who are wise heal themselves. The wise never fall ill because they rid themselves of the causes of illnesses. They abide in Tao. How can they be ill then? #Quote by Lao Tzu
Wise quotes by Bruce Lee
#59. The disease of philosophy. - Philosophy is itself the disease for which it pretends to be the cure: the wise man does not pursue wisdom but lives his life, and therein precisely does his wisdom lie. #Quote by Bruce Lee
Wise quotes by Epicurus
#60. The wise man thinks of fame just enough to avoid being despised. #Quote by Epicurus
Wise quotes by Horace
#61. He who has begun has half done. Dare to be wise; begin! #Quote by Horace
Wise quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#62. What a pity Bilbo did not stab the vile creature, when he had a chance!
Pity? It was Pity that stayed his hand. Pity, and Mercy: not to strike without need.
I do not feel any pity for Gollum. He deserves death. Deserves death! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give that to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Wise quotes by David Hume
#63. Nothing is so convenient as a decisive argument ... which must at least silence the most arrogant bigotry and superstition, and free us from their impertinent solicitations. I flatter myself, that I have discovered an argument ... which, if just, will, with the wise and learned, be an everlasting check to all kinds of superstitious delusion, and consequently, will be useful as long as the world endures. For so long, I presume, will the accounts of miracles and prodigies be found in all history, sacred and profane. #Quote by David Hume
Wise quotes by Osho
#64. 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
Wise quotes by Seneca.
#65. The wise man, he said, lacked nothing but needed a great number of things, whereas 'the fool, on the other hand, needs nothing (for he does not know how to use anything) but lack everything. #Quote by Seneca.
Wise quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
#66. Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Wise quotes by Francis Shenstone
#69. Clever people learn from their mistakes; wise people study other people's errors first. #Quote by Francis Shenstone
Wise quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#70. Balanced service is a virtue to be cherished. There is to be time in our life to serve God, to serve our family, to serve our country and community, to serve our employer. Wise persons budget available time so that no significant area of one's life falls into a state of neglect. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Wise quotes by Daniel McCoy
#71. 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
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#72. Why do many souls love darkness than the light? #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wise quotes by J. Robert Oppenheimer
#73. We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert. #Quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#74. we came naked into the world and we will exit naked. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#75. Good health, good life. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wise quotes by Jello Biafra
#76. I was the kid in the class who was looking for the angles to question things or make wise-ass remarks, not knowing enough to be afraid of being myself or showing intelligence. But I wasn't the only kid like that in my classes because of where I grew up. I'm really thankful I grew up in a town where there were a lot of other mutant kids. I'm from Boulder, Colorado, which went through a lot of dramatic changes when I was growing up. #Quote by Jello Biafra
Wise quotes by Starhawk
#77. The witches, the wise women, and the healers were also always the counselors. It's a whole other tradition of knowledge and learning that has been suppressed because it had political implications. #Quote by Starhawk
Wise quotes by Sholem Aleichem
#78. Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor. #Quote by Sholem Aleichem
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#79. When you have enough, there is no need for excessiveness. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise quotes by Giambattista Vico
#84. Political Science carries inseparably with it the study of piety, and that he who is not pious cannot be truly wise. #Quote by Giambattista Vico
Wise quotes by Lily Velden
#85. My friends tell me I am strong, decisive, and wise. What a joke. Where is my strength tonight? Where is my wisdom? Ironically, they tell me I am 'so open'. Me, who has so many secrets that I have never shared. The irony would be funny if it wasn't so sad. Their blindness to my true self makes me feel invisible. Not in the way that a spirit or ghost is invisible, for I am most definitely flesh, blood, sinew, and bone. I even have a mind that works nimble and fast, and a mouth that speaks reasonably eloquently, when I feel I have something worthwhile to say. No, I'm invisible because the people who populate my life either do not, or cannot, see the real me. Of course, that is but another irony. I know much of my invisibility is of my own doing, and that is the last joke on myself: that which I seek is also that which I fear. #Quote by Lily Velden
Wise quotes by Jack Canfield
#86. There are essentially two things that will make you wise
the books you read and the people you meet. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Wise quotes by Soma Mukherjee
#87. In The Sunset Sky
The sunset sky dazzling with the golden hues,
Taking bow in brilliant sparkle of experience
Is it not a climax, of the story so far, that was today?
Or is it building anticipation of the night yet to come.
Watch the days go,
some proud of their accomplishments
Some leaving sighs of disappointments, Leaving all in awe of its Amaranthine twists and turns
And the fortunate get to see the moon trying to steal the show from setting sun,
Oh she is such a show off, isn't she, basking in reflected glory
Its magical, the sunset sky,Puzzling, sometimes just like a riddle,
Leaving the nature stunned and amazed For it has been filling the canvas whole day with colours
And now the sunset threatens to hide them all
And in dark all the colours will be same
A cue for the wise.
Sunset sky has so much to offer,
is she not a fine exampleof how uncertain a life can be
Often reminding no matter what you planned, there will besome unexpected returns
For End has its own brain, its own script
Charting its own course
So why just the beginning,every moment of the life should be grand,
meted with equal passion and fervor
She has been so clever; the sunset sky
Leaving Twinkling cryptic messages for the night sky
For even the dark has sparkle and hope if you keep your head up,
A constant reminder that exuberance is an attitude of deep,rich, warm hearts
#Quote by Soma Mukherjee
Wise quotes by Cassandra Clare
#88. You invited him into bed?" Simon demanded, looking shaken. "Ridiculous, isn't it?" said Jace. "We would never have all fit. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Wise quotes by Celia Rivenbark
#89. I braced myself for something wise and useful. Dink, like most Bubbas, could be quite insightful and kind when you least expected it.
"Always remember one thing in this life," he said, pausing to stare at the koala's big brown glass eyes. I knew he woulda shot it if we were really in the wild.
"What is it, Dink? What should I remember? I could really use some perspective here."
"Always remember ... you can't drink all day if you don't start in the mornin'. #Quote by Celia Rivenbark
Wise quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#90. Brand stared in sick disbelief. He'd been sure among all those lads someone would speak, for they were honest enough. Or Hunnan would tell his part in it, for he was a respected master-at-arms. The king or the queen would draw out the truth, for they were wise and righteous. The gods wouldn't allow such an injustice to pass. Someone would do something. Maybe, like him, they were all waiting for someone else to put things right. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Wise quotes by Hippocrates
#91. A wise man should consider that health is the greatest 
of human blessings, and learn how by his own 
thought to derive benefit from his illnesses. #Quote by Hippocrates
Wise quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#92. To become wise you have to want to experience certain experiences, and so to run into their open jaws. This is very dangerous, tobe sure; many a "wise man" has been eaten up in doing so. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Wise quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#93. You are as wise as you are beautiful, Thorn Bathu. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Wise quotes by Albert Camus
#94. A practical rule: a man which is wise in one area may be silly in others. #Quote by Albert Camus
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#95. If the breath of life is taken, man turn to dust. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wise quotes by Tim Wise
#96. Being asked to describe what 'post-racial' means is a bit like being asked to describe a leprechaun, cold fusion or unicorns: we know what is meant, but, if we are willing to be honest, we also know that none of the four describe something real, something tangible, something true. #Quote by Tim Wise
Wise quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#97. Learned we may be with another man's learning: we can only be wise with wisdom of our own. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Wise quotes by Voltaire
#99. Is there anyone so wise as to learn by the experience of others? #Quote by Voltaire
Wise quotes by Lailah Gity Akita
#100. If we learn to live with few wants, we shall forever be happy. #Quote by Lailah Gity Akita
Wise quotes by Emily Post
#101. The joy of joys is the person of light but unmalicious humor. If you know any one who is gay, beguiling and amusing, you will, if you are wise, do everything you can to make him prefer your house and your table to any other; for where he is, the successful party is also. #Quote by Emily Post
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#102. Is there any courage, without craziness? #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#106. What you see in others you must first be able to recognize in yourself. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Wise quotes by Alice Walker
#107. Howard Zinn was magical as a teacher. Witty, irreverent, and wise, he loved what he was teaching and clearly wanted his students to love it, also. #Quote by Alice Walker
Wise quotes by R.C. Sproul
#108. The God of Christianity is sovereign, wise, righteous, and ultimately concerned with justice. Not only is God concerned with justice, He assumes the role of judge over us. It is axiomatic to Christianity that our actions will be judged. This theme is conspicuously absent in much Christian teaching today, yet it fills the New Testament and touches virtually every sermon of Jesus of Nazareth. We will be called into account for every idle word we speak. On the
final day, it will not be our consciences that will accuse or excuse us, but God Himself. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Wise quotes by Jonathan Swift
#110. A carpenter is known by his chips. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Wise quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#111. God command the sun to rise every new morning. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Wise quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo

Wise quotes by John Carey Cremony
#118. When will the white man ever become wise, and, instead of treating the Indian with scornful indifference, give him credit for his intelligence, his quick and remarkable instincts, his powers of reflection and organization, and his inveterate opposition to all innovation? #Quote by John Carey Cremony

Wise quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#123. There are sufficient and suitable accommodations for all the different sorts of persons that are in the world: for great and small, for high and low, rich and poor, wise and unwise, bond and free, persons of all nations and all conditions and circumstances, for those that have been great sinners as well as for moral livers; for weak saints and those that are babes in Christ as well as for those that are stronger and more grown in grace. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Wise quotes by Samuel Johnson
#124. He that resigns his peace to little casualties, and suffers the course of his life to be interrupted for fortuitous inadvertencies or offences, delivers up himself to the direction of the wind, and loses all that constancy and equanimity which constitutes the chief praise of a wise man. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Wise quotes by Miranda July
#125. After I had my son I looked everywhere for a book that might serve as some kind of mirror. I bought so many silly books. Now I see what the problem was: I wanted a book about time-about mortality. I can't think of a writer who is at once so experimentally daring and so rigorously uncompromising as Sarah Manguso. Ongoingness is an incredibly elegant, wise book, and I loved it. #Quote by Miranda July

Wise quotes by Eric Weiner
#131. Kunley belongs to a spiritual school of thought known as crazy wisdom. Every religion has its branch of crazy wisdom. The Christians have their Fools for Christ. The Muslims have their Sufi Mast-Qalanders. The Jews have Woody Allen. Yet none is as crazy, or as wise, as Drukpa Kunley. #Quote by Eric Weiner
Wise quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#132. Because the Romans did in these instances what all prudent princes ought to do, who have to regard not only present troubles, but also future ones, for which they must prepare with every energy, because, when foreseen, it is easy to remedy them; but if you wait until they approach, the medicine is no longer in time because the malady has become incurable; for it happens in this, as the physicians say it happens in hectic fever, that in the beginning of the malady it is easy to cure but difficult to detect, but in the course of time, not having been either detected or treated in the beginning, it becomes easy to detect but difficult to cure. This it happens in affairs of state, for when the evils that arise have been foreseen (which it is only given to a wise man to see), they can be quickly redressed, but when, through not having been foreseen, they have been permitted to grow in a way that every one can see them, there is no longer a remedy #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Wise quotes by Idries Shah
#133. If you want to make an ordinary man happy, or think that he is happy, give him money, power, flattery, gifts, honours. If you want to make a wise man happy - improve yourself! #Quote by Idries Shah
Wise quotes by James Oliver Curwood
#134. There are so many kinds of madness, so many ways in which the human brain may go wrong; and so often it happens that what we call madness is both reasonable and just. It is so. Yes. A little reason is good for us, a little more makes wise men of some of us
but when our reason over-grows us and we reach too far, something breaks and we go insane. #Quote by James Oliver Curwood

Wise quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#136. Life is a battle; face it.
Life is a jungle; explore it.
Life is a puzzle; study it.
Life is a mystery; solve it.
Life is a game; beat it.
Life is an opponent; defeat it.
Life is a treasure; cherish it. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo

#139. Wise man was he who counselled that speculation should have free course, and look fearlessly towards all the thirty-two points of the compass, whithersoever and howsoever it listed. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Wise quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#140. Science! true daughter of Old Time thou art!
Who alterest all things with thy peering eyes.
Why preyest thou thus upon the poet's heart,
Vulture, whose wings are dull realities?
How should he love thee? or how deem thee wise?
Who wouldst not leave him in his wandering
To seek for treasure in the jewelled skies,
Albeit he soared with an undaunted wing?
Hast thou not dragged Diana from her car?
And driven the Hamadryad from the wood
To seek a shelter in some happier star?
Hast thou not torn the Naiad from her flood,
The Elfin from the green grass, and from me
The summer dream beneath the tamarind tree? #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Wise quotes by Michael Jackson
#141. Sometimes the heart is so heavy that we turn away from it and forget that its throbbing is the wisest message of life, a wordless message that says, "Live, be, move, rejoice
you are alive!" Without the heart's wise rhythm, we could not exist. #Quote by Michael Jackson
Wise quotes by John Ruskin
#142. The persons who become rich are, generally speaking, industrious, resolute, proud, covetous, prompt, methodical, sensible, unimaginative, insensitive, and ignorant. The persons who remain poor are the entirely foolish, the entirely wise, the idle, the reckless, the humble, the thoughtful, the dull, the imaginative, the sensitive, the well-informed, the improvident, the irregularly and impulsively wicked, the clumsy knave, the open thief, and the entirely merciful just and godly person. #Quote by John Ruskin
Wise quotes by David Hume
#143. In our reasonings concerning matter of fact, there are all imaginable degrees of assurance, from the highest certainty to the lowest species of moral evidence. A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence. #Quote by David Hume
Wise quotes by Kevin Hart - I Can't Make This Up

Wise quotes by Matt Chandler
#150. I'm wise to be a good steward, but I'll never be my own rescuer. The worth thing you can do with fear and anxiety is to pretend you're too strong to have them. The best thing you can do is just to let Him be in charge of them #Quote by Matt Chandler
Wise quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#151. A prince who is not himself wise cannot be wisely advised ... Good advice depends on the shrewdness of the prince who seeks it, and not the shrewdness of the prince on good advice. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli

#152. I met my wife, Doreen, who was a dancer in the show. #Quote by Ernie Wise
Wise quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#153. It is a three-piece affair, everything quilted, long jacket, waistcoat, and trousers, which have Feet at the ends of them, all in striped silk, a double stripe of some acidick Rose upon Celadon for the Trousers and Waistcoat, and for the Jacket, whose hem touches the floor when, as now, he is seated, a single stripe of teal-blue upon the same color, which is also that of the Revers ... It is usually not wise to discuss matters of costume with people who dress like this,
politics or religion being far safer topicks. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon

Wise quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#158. Most of my failures can be ascribed to the fact that I chose that which was 'easy' over that which was 'right'. And while it's 'right' to admit this to myself, it isn't 'easy.' So, which choice am I going to make this time? #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Wise quotes by George S. Clason
#159. Wise are thy words, my friend," responded the buyer. "Good luck fled from procrastination in both these tales. Yet, this is not unusual. The spirit of procrastination is within all men. We desire riches; yet, how often when opportunity doth appear before us, that spirit of procrastination from within doth urge various delays in our acceptance. In listening to it we do become our own worst enemies. #Quote by George S. Clason

Wise quotes by Hermann Hesse
#162. Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else ... Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it. #Quote by Hermann Hesse

#166. The Wise and Foolish Builders 24Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash. #Quote by Anonymous

Wise quotes by Melinda Gebbie
#169. I think, honestly, the film industry is eating up comics characters at such a fast pace, and spewing them out as so much unspeakable, stench-y, crap. I mean, I think people are going to get pretty sick of the comics product of superhero, per se. Super-heroism seems to be so visceral for these times. Nobody needs a big clunky guy to throw cars about. You know, we've got drunks in town here that can do that. We don't need that kind of superhero. What we need is a super-sage. We need a genuine group of wise people. We need to become wise. That's the job of tomorrow; becoming wise, and integrated, and understanding. #Quote by Melinda Gebbie
Wise quotes by Bryonie Wise
#170. I wanted
to write you a love poem

But my heart
feels out of tune

So I coax my breath
into the darkness
of my rib cage
And invite it to fan open

Maybe I would say
something like,

"One day,
I would like to
fall in love with you,"

And here I pause
while the tears
that have been threatening
to rain down all day
swell high in my chest,
blurring my vision

"One day,
I would like to
fall in love with you,"

I will start writing again, & continue,

"wherever you are,
whoever you are,
but in this moment,
I will fall in love with me."

My brow furls
ever so slightly,
because that is not
what I expected to say

I pause again
& allow the container to soften,
for the edges to get blurry

And the tears,
one by one spill over
And all the holding
of the day crumples away
And I am me again
& you are you again,

too #Quote by Bryonie Wise

Wise quotes by Christina Rossetti
#174. What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb.
If I were a Wise Man
I would do my part.
Yet what can I give Him?
I give Him my heart. #Quote by Christina Rossetti

Wise quotes by Seraphim Of Sarov
#178. If a man has no worries about himself at all for the sake of love toward God and the working of good deeds, knowing that God is taking care of him, this is a true and wise hope. But if a man takes care of his own business and turns to God in prayer only when misfortunes come upon him which are beyond his power, and then he begins to hope in God, such a hope is vain and false. A true hope seeks only the Kingdom of God ... the heart can have no peace until it obtains such a hope. This hope pacifies the heart and produces joy within it. #Quote by Seraphim Of Sarov

Wise quotes by Thomas Paine
#187. HOW CAME THE KING BY A POWER WHICH THE PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO TRUST, AND ALWAYS OBLIGED TO CHECK? Such a power could not be the gift of a wise people, neither can any power, WHICH NEEDS CHECKING, be from God; yet the provision, which the constitution makes, supposes such a power to exist. #Quote by Thomas Paine

no room for fear among the formidable,
no room for haste among the gentle,
no room for dishonesty among the noble,
no room for indecency among the honorable,

Wise quotes by Howard Zinn
#194. Senator H. V. Johnson said: I believe we should be recreant to our noble mission, if we refused acquiescence in the high purposes of a wise Providence. War has its evils. In all ages it has been the minister of wholesale death and appalling desolation; but however inscrutable to us, it has also been made, by the Allwise Dispenser of events, the instrumentality of accomplishing the great end of human elevation and human happiness ... It is in this view, that I subscribe to the doctrine of manifest destiny. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Wise quotes by Seneca.
#195. ...nothing happens to the wise man against his expectation. #Quote by Seneca.
Wise quotes by Terry Pratchett
#196. The anthropologists got it wrong when they named our species Homo sapiens ('wise man'). In any case it's an arrogant and bigheaded thing to say, wisdom being one of our least evident features. In reality, we are Pan narrans, the storytelling chimpanzee. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Wise quotes by Joyce Meyer
#197. No matter what other people may have told you that you are not, God delights in telling you in His Word who you are in Him - loved, valuable, precious, talented, gifted, capable, powerful, wise, and redeemed. I encourage you to take a moment and repeat those nine things out loud. Say, "I am loved, valuable, precious, talented, gifted, capable, powerful, wise, and redeemed." He has a good plan for you! Get excited about your life. You are created in God's image and you are amazing! #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Wise quotes by William James
#198. If I refuse to stop a murder because I am in doubt whether it be not justifiable homicide, I am virtually abetting the crime. If I refuse to bale out a boat because I am in doubt whether my efforts will keep her afloat, I am really helping to sink her. If in the mountain precipice I doubt my right to risk a leap, I actively connive at my destruction. He who commands himself not to be credulous of God, of duty, of freedom, of immortality, may again and again be indistinguishable from him who dogmatically denies them. Scepticism in moral matters is an active ally of immorality. Who is not for is against. The universe will have no neutrals in these questions. In theory as in practice, dodge or hedge, or talk as we like about a wise scepticism, we are really doing volunteer military service for one side or the other. #Quote by William James
Wise quotes by Alan Paton
#199. Who indeed knows the secret of the earthly pilgrimage? Who indeed knows why there can be comfort in a world of desolation? Now God be thanked that there is a beloved one who can lift up the heart in suffering, that one can play with a child in the face of such misery. Now God be thanked that the name of a hill is such music, that the name of a river can heal. Aye, even the name of a river that runs no more.
Who indeed knows the secret of the earthly pilgrimage? Who knows for what we live, and struggle and die? Who knows what keeps us living and struggling, while all things break about us? Who knows why the warm flesh of a child is such comfort, when one's own child is lost and cannot be recovered? Wise men write many books, in words too hard to understand. But this, the purpose of our lives, the end of all our struggle, is beyond all human wisdom. #Quote by Alan Paton
Wise quotes by Vern Sheridan Poythress
#200. The person who goes astray from God's wise guidance burdens himself with sorrows and frustrations. In fact, he ends up being a slave to his own desires. #Quote by Vern Sheridan Poythress
