I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day.
Abraham Lincoln quotes
Wisdom sets bounds even to knowledge.
Friedrich Nietzsche quotes
Of all the things which wisdom acquires to produce the blessedness of the complete life far the greatest is the possesion of Friendship.
He whose wisdom exceeds his works, to what may he be likened? To a tree whose branches are numerous but whose roots are few. The wind comes along and uproots it and sweeps it down.
The Talmud quotes
Just as a cautious businessman avoids investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us also not to anticipate all our happiness from one quarter alone.
Sigmund Freud quotes
Poetry begins in delight and ends in wisdom.
Robert Frost quotes
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Reinhold Niebuhr quotes
Health is the condition of wisdom, and the sign is cheerfulness, -- an open and noble temper.
Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes
It is by the fortune of God that, in this country, we have three benefits: freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and the wisdom never to use either.
Mark Twain quotes
It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.
Mahatma Gandhi quotes
