The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion.
Courageous, untroubled, mocking and violent - that is what wisdom wants us to be. Wisdom is a woman, and loves only a warrior.
Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, "This is going to take more than one night.”
Charles M Schulz
By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter.
I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.
Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.
In examinations, the foolish ask questions the wise cannot answer.
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
When an argument flares up, the wise man quenches it with silence.
Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.
