Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation. Where there is poverty and joy, there is neither greed nor avarice. Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt.
Best Quotes about Wisdom
Wisdom is found only in truth.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

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.

Wisdom is the power to put our time and our knowledge to the proper use.
Watson, Thomas J.
Wisdom is the supreme part of happiness.
To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must observe.
Marilyn vos Savant
What is the price of experience? Do men buy it for a song? Or wisdom for a dance in the street? No, it is bought with the price of all the man hath, his house, his wife, his children.
Who is a wise man? He who learns of all men.
