Wisdom quotes
Every speaker has a mouth; An arrangement rather neat. Sometimes it's filled with wisdom. Sometimes it's filled with feet.

- Orben, Robert
Wisdom doesn't automatically come with old age. Nothing does - except wrinkles. It's true, some wines improve with age. But only if the grapes were good in the first place.

- Abigail Van Buren
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
Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know.

- Saroyan, William
Wisdom does not show itself so much in precept as in life -- in firmness of mind and a mastery of appetite. It teaches us to do as well as to talk; and to make our words and actions all of a color.

- Seneca
The mistakes of the fool are known to the world, but not to himself. The mistakes of the wise man are known to himself, but not to the world.

- Colton, Charles Caleb
Wisdom we know is the knowledge of good and evil -- not the strength to choose between the two.

- Cheever, John
As irrigators lead water where they want, as archers make their arrows straight, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their minds.

- Buddha
The best mind might be the wisest mind if it were a mind alone that produces wisdom.

The road to wisdom? Well, it's plain and simple to express: Errand err again but less and less and less.

- Hein, Piet
What is all wisdom save a collection of platitudes? Take fifty of our current proverbial sayings -- they are so trite, so threadbare, that we can hardly bring our lips to utter them. None the less they embody the concentrated experience of the race and the man who orders his life according to their teaching cannot go far wrong.

- Douglas, Norman
To flee vice is the beginning of virtue, and to have got rid of folly is the beginning of wisdom.

- Horace
It is no little wisdom for a man to keep himself in silence and in good peace when evil words are spoken to him, and to turn his heart to God and not to be troubled with man's judgment.

- Kempis, Thomas
By the time your life is finished, you will have learned just enough to begin it well.

- Marx, Eleanor
It is the province of knowledge to speak and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes
Wisdom does not show itself so much in precept as in life - in firmness of mind and a mastery of appetite. It teaches us to do as well as to talk; and to make our words and actions all of a color.

- Seneca
Nothing can be meaner than the anxiety to live on, to live on anyhow and in any shape; a spirit with any honor is not willing to live except in its own way, and a spirit with any wisdom is not over-eager to live at all.

- Santayana, George
What wisdom she had she did not pick off the hedge, like blackberries. God is too kind to give away wisdom after that useless fashion. So she had to earn her wisdom, and to work hard, and suffer much ere she attained it. And in attaining she endured strange adventures and great sorrows; and yet they would not have given her the wisdom had she not had something in herself which gave her wit to understand her lessons, and skill and courage to do what they taught her. There had been many names for that something before she was born, there have been many names for it since, but her father and mother called it the Grace of God.

- Unfinished Novel. 1869.
Well I am certainly wiser than this man. It is only too likely that neither of us has any knowledge to boast of; but he thinks that he knows something which he does not know, whereas I am quite conscious of my ignorance. At any rate it seems that I am wiser than he is to this small extent, that I do not think that I know what I do not know.

- Socrates
Data is not information, Information is not knowledge, Knowledge is not understanding, Understanding is not wisdom.

- Cliff Stoll & Gary Schubert
