Wisdom quotes
Wisdom
We never understand what we're praying; and God, in His mercy, does not answer our prayers according to our understanding, but according to His wisdom.

- Rich Mullins
We are in fact convinced that if we are ever to have pure knowledge of anything, we must get rid of the body and contemplate things by themselves with the soul by itself. It seems, to judge from the argument, that the wisdom which we desire and upon which we profess to have set our hearts will be attainable only when we are dead and not in our lifetime.

- Socrates
Subtract from the great man all that he owes to opportunity, all that he owes to chance, and all that he gained by the wisdom of his friends and the folly of his enemies, and the giant will often be seen to be a pygmy.

- Colton, Charles Caleb
The price of wisdom is eternal thought.

- Birch, Frank
Stage charm guarantees in advance an actor's hold on the audience, it helps him to carry over to large numbers of people his creative purposes. It enhances his roles and his art. Yet it is of utmost importance that he use this precious gift with prudence, wisdom, and modesty. It is a great shame when he does not realize this and goes on to exploit, to play on his ability to charm.

- Stanislavisky, Konstantin
We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it--and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit on a hot stove lid again--and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.

- Mark Twain
A thought which, quarter'd, hath but one part wisdom and ever three parts coward.

- William Shakespeare
Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. [Proverbs 3:13-15]

- Bible
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave whither thou goest. [Ecclesiastes 9:10]

- Bible
Information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, and wisdom is not foresight. Each grows out of the other, and we need them all.

- Arthur C. Clarke
We all admire the wisdom of people who come to us for advice.

- Herbert, Jack
Doubt is the vestibule which all must pass before they can enter the temple of wisdom. When we are in doubt and puzzle out the truth by our own exertions, we have gained something that will stay by us and will serve us again. But if to avoid the trouble of the search we avail ourselves of the superior information of a friend, such knowledge will not remain with us; we have not bought, but borrowed it.

- C. C. Colton
Wisdom is not a product of schooling, but of the life- long attempt to acquire it.

- Albert Einstein
Until divinity decides to reveal the future to human kind, the sum of all human wisdom is contained in these two words: Wait and Hope.

- Alexandre Dumas
The wise man says it cannot be done, but the fool goes and does it.

The beginning of wisdom is to desire it.

- Gabirol, Ibn
Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But, man, there's no boundary line to art.

- Charlie Parker
The most certain sign of wisdom is cheerfulness.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Wisdom overcomes fortune.

- Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
The extreme limit of wisdom --that's what the public calls madness.

- Cocteau, Jean
