Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom (Job 32:7).
The Bible quotes
Perfect wisdom has four parts: Wisdom, the principle of doing things aright. Justice, the principle of doing things equally in public and private. Fortitude, the principle of not fleeing danger, but meeting it. Temperance, the principle of subduing desires and living moderately.
The fool wanders, a wise man travels.
Thomas Fuller quotes
It is the province of knowledge to speak, and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.
Oliver Wendell Holmes quotes
A wise man, recognizing that the world is but an illusion, does not act as if it is real, so he escapes the suffering.
No man is wise enough by himself.
Titus Maccius Plautus quotes
Wisdom alone is true ambition's aim, wisdom is the source of virtue and of fame; obtained with labour, for mankind employed, and then, when most you share it, best enjoyed.
Alfred North Whitehead quotes
If one keeps loving faithfully what is really worth loving, and does not waste one's love on insignificant and unworthy and meaningless things, one will get more light by and by and grow stronger. Sometimes it is well to go into the world and converse with people, and at times one is obliged to do so, but he who would prefer to be quietly alone with his work, and who wants but very few friends, will go safest through the world and among people. And even in the most refined circles and with the best surroundings and circumstances, one must keep something of the original character of an anchorite, for other wise one has no root in oneself; one must never let the fire go out in one's soul, but keep it burning. And whoever chooses poverty for himself and loves it possesses a great treasure, and will always clearly hear the voice of his conscience; he who hears and obeys that voice, which is the best gift of God, finds at least a friend in it, and is never alone.
Vincent Van Gogh quotes
There are no holy places and no holy people, only holy moments, only moments of wisdom.
If age imparted wisdom, there wouldn't be any old fools.
