Wisdom quotes
Wisdom
The only one who is wiser than anyone is everyone.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon
There is this difference between happiness and wisdom, that he that thinks himself the happiest man, really is so; but he who thinks himself the wisest, is generally the greatest fool.

- C. C. Colton
God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.

- Reinhold Niebuhr
From the persistence of noise comes the insistence of rage. From the emergence of tone comes the divergence of thought. From the enlightenment of music comes the wisdom of... silence.

- Visions of Gregorian Chants
The beginning of wisdom is a definition of terms.

- Socrates
Education, we see, is not merely gaining knowledge or skills helpful toward productive work, though certainly that is a part of it. Rather it is a replenishment and an expansion of the natural thirst of the mind and soul. Learning is a gradual process of growth, each step building upon the other. It is a process whereby the learner organizes and integrates not only facts but attitudes and values. The Lord has told us that we must open our minds and our hearts to learn. There is a Chinese proverb: Wisdom is as the moon rises, perceptible not in progress but in result. As our knowledge is converted to wisdom, the door to opportunity is unlocked.

- Winder, Barbara W.
Wisdom is perishable. Unlike information or knowledge, it cannot be stored in a computer or recorded in a book. It expires with each passing generation.

- Taylor, Sid
It seems to me that, in every culture, I come across a chapter headed Wisdom. And then I know exactly what is going to follow: Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.

- Wittgenstein, Ludwig
PHYSIOGNOMY, n. The art of determining the character of another by the resemblances and differences between his face and our own, which is the standard of excellence. "There is no art," says Shakespeare, foolish man, "To read the mind's construction in the face." The physiognomists his portrait scan, And say: "How little wisdom here we trace! He knew his face disclosed his mind and heart, So, in his own defence, denied our art." Lavatar Shunk

- Ambrose Bierce
GRAPE, n. Hail noble fruit! -- by Homer sung, Anacreon and Khayyam; Thy praise is ever on the tongue Of better men than I am. The lyre in my hand has never swept, The song I cannot offer: My humbler service pray accept -- I'll help to kill the scoffer. The water-drinkers and the cranks Who load their skins with liquor -- I'll gladly bear their belly-tanks And tap them with my sticker. Fill up, fill up, for wisdom cools When e'er we let the wine rest. Here's death to Prohibition's fools, And every kind of vine-pest! Jamrach Holobom

- Ambrose Bierce
Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought.

- Basho, Matsuo
'Tis much he dares; and, to that dauntless temper of his mind, he hath a wisdom that doth guide his valour to act in safety.

- William Shakespeare
It does not take sharp eyes to see the sun and the moon, nor does it take sharp ears to hear the thunderclap. Wisdom is not obvious. You must see the subtle and notice the hidden to be victorious.

- Sun Tzu
Some folks are wise and some otherwise.

- Billings, Josh
Love is the wisdom of the fool and the folly of the wise.

- Samuel Johnson
Men can acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.

- Proverb, Spanish
Like an ability or a muscle, hearing your inner wisdom is strengthened by doing it.

- Robbie Gass
That is true wisdom, to know how to alter one's mind when occasion demands it.

- Terence
Even though you know a thousand things, ask the man who knows one.

- Proverb, Turkish
Rightly defined philosophy is simply the love of wisdom.

- Cicero, Marcus T.
