Charles Dickens. Putting is like wisdom — partly a natural gift and partly the accumulation of experience. Arnold Palmer. Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Francis of Assisi Click to tweet. If we have built on the fragile cornerstones of human wisdom, pride, and conditional love, things may look good for a while, but a weak foundation causes collapse when storms hit.
Charles Stanley. Wisdom acquisition is a moral duty. As a corollary to that proposition which is very important, it means that you are hooked for lifetime learning. And without lifetime learning, you people are not going to do very well. You are not going to get very far in life based on what you already know.
Charlie Munger. The good and the wise lead quiet lives. It is necessary to take what is common as our guide; however, though this logic is universal, the many live as if each individual has his own private wisdom. Wisdom is that apprehension of heavenly things to which the spirit rises through love.
The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom. Isaac Asimov. Learning sleeps and snores in libraries, but wisdom is everywhere, wide awake, on tiptoe. Josh Billings. Wisdom stands at the turn in the road and calls upon us publicly, but we consider it false and despise its adherents.
Wisdom does not show itself so much in precept as in life — in a firmness of mind and mastery of appetite. It teaches us to do as well as talk; and to make our actions and words all of a color. The sublimity of wisdom is to do those things living, which are to be desired when dying. Norman Douglas.
Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience. Precepts and instruction are useful so far as they go, but, without the discipline of real life, they remain of the nature of theory only. The experience gathered from books, though often valuable, is but the nature of learning; whereas the experience gained from actual life is one of the nature of wisdom.
The truest greatness lies in being kind, the truest wisdom in a happy mind. Ella Wheeler Wilcox Click to tweet. It is the nature of the wise to resist pleasures, but the foolish to be a slave to them. There is this difference between happiness and wisdom: he that thinks himself the happiest man, really is so; but he that thinks himself the wisest, is generally the greatest fool. Charles Caleb Colton. He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.
It is impossible to live a pleasant life without living wisely and well and justly. And it is impossible to live wisely and well and justly without living a pleasant life. The final wisdom of life requires not the annulment of incongruity but the achievement of serenity within and above it. Reinhold Niebuhr. Be happy.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette. The wise are cheerful and content with their lot in life. We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much. Tina Turner. Let us be silent, content in our little corner, meek and gentle like them. That is the wisdom of life.
Somerset Maugham. Nothing is more simple than greatness; indeed, to be simple is to be great. Ralph Waldo Emerson Click to tweet. Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury — to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best for both the body and the mind. Albert Einstein. Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy. Isaac Newton Click to tweet. To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.
Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity , and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things. Isaac Newton. I do believe in simplicity. It is astonishing as well as sad, how many trivial affairs even the wisest thinks he must attend to in a day; how singular an affair he thinks he must omit. When the mathematician would solve a difficult problem, he first frees the equation of all incumbrances, and reduces it to its simplest terms.
So simplify the problem of life, distinguish the necessary and the real.

Probe the earth to see where your main roots run. Henry David Thoreau. Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself. As you simplify your life, the laws of the Universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude , poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness. Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.
In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. To light one candle to God and another to the Devil is the principle of wisdom. Jose Bergamin Click to tweet. Earthly wisdom is doing what comes naturally.
Godly wisdom is doing what the Holy Spirit compels us to do. Science investigates religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power religion gives man wisdom which is control. Martin Luther King Jr. If we believe in a God at all, we must surely ascribe to him perfection of wisdom and perfection of goodness; we are then forced to conceive of Him — however strange it may sound to those who believe, not only without seeing but also without thinking — as without will, because He must always necessarily pursue the course which is wisest and best.
Annie Besant. The Divine wisdom has given us prayer, not as a means whereby to obtain the good things of earth, but as a means whereby we learn to do without them; not as a means whereby we escape evil, but as a means whereby we become strong to meet it. Frederick William Robertson. God the Father, the supreme Architect, had already built this cosmic home we behold, the most sacred temple of His godhead, by the laws of His mysterious wisdom.
Giovanni Pico della Mirandola. This fear of the Lord is indeed the beginning of wisdom. This consciousness of sin is the straight pathway to heaven. Joseph Barber Lightfoot. Joseph Prince. The best way to obtain truth and wisdom is not to ask from books, but to go to God in prayer, and obtain divine teaching.
Joseph Smith Jr. The just man loves God for nothing, neither for this nor for that, and if God gave him wisdom or anything else he had to give, except himself, the just man would not look at it, nor would it be to his taste; for he wants nothing, seeks nothing, and has no reason for doing anything.
Meister Eckhart. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change , the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Your task is to build a better world, God said. I answered, How? But God in all His wisdom said, just build a better you.
The harder you ask for something, and work for it, the better your chances of getting it. The question is, are you working hard and asking for it? A man may learn wisdom even from a foe. Aristophanes Click to tweet. The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages are perpetuated by quotations. Benjamin Disraeli. Uncertainty is the root of all progress and all growth. We cannot learn anything without first not knowing something. Mark Manson. The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance. Wisdom is knowing what to do next; Skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.
David Starr Jordan. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position.
Bertrand Russell. Wisdom is not words written in some book. Wisdom is a costly acquisition. It is iterated learning from years of experience. Wisdom is achieved by keeping an open mind and a closed mouth. Ignorance is exposed by having an open mouth and a closed mind. Jim Stovall. The stupidity of people comes from having an answer for everything. The wisdom of the novel comes from having a question for everything. Milan Kundera.
There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source. Brigham Young. Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom. Charles Spurgeon. There is as much wisdom in listening as there is in speaking — and that goes for all relationships, not just romantic ones.
Daniel Dae Kim. Abundance of knowledge does not teach men to be wise.

Heraclitus Click to tweet. Herbie Hancock. Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, be fortified by it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it. Mayim Bialik. An educator is not merely a giver of information; he is one who points the way to wisdom, to truth. Truth is far more important than the teacher.
The search for truth is religion, and truth is of no country, of no creed, it is not to be found in any temple, church or mosque. Without the search for truth, society soon decays. The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.

In the frank expression of conflicting opinions lies the greatest promise of wisdom in governmental action.
Louis D. I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power the greater it will be. All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope. Alexandre Dumas Click to tweet. To wisdom belongs the intellectual apprehension of things eternal; to knowledge, the rational apprehension of things temporal. Augustine of Hippo.

If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible. Harv Ecker. True wisdom is less presuming than folly. The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate, and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance. Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

TRUTH always prevails! Always respect yourself as a woman. If you want respect, you must first learn how to respect yourself, first. Attracting negative attention is never a good thing. Be a woman of substance! Be a woman that both women and men respect, admire, and look up to. Think about it! Back and forth between loving and leaving, remembering and forgetting, holding on and letting go. Tell yourself, You do not deserve this! All those toxic words you have to listen from people, All those fears they try to pin on your mind, All those giggles they aim at your dreams, All those judgmental stares inspecting your individuality, All those fingers pointing towards your crude character, All those shackles that tie your feet to social expectations, All those cages that do not let your imagination fly free, Listen deeply, you do not deserve any of it.
My dear fellow human, you do not deserve this hostility. You are born wild, You do not deserve to be tamed! We must learn to grow and evolve into a stronger, wiser and better version of ourselves. Life occurs in stages and taking a step at a time is key to learning and growing. We keep at bay the flow of common, ignorant thought which runs its damaging course through the pathways of ordinary human conversation. Browse By Tag. Love Quotes 72k Life Quotes Welcome back.
