Wisdom Quotes and Proverbs
Preconcieved notions are the locks on the door to wisdom.
Information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, wisdom is not truth, truth is not beauty, beauty is not love.
David Starr Jordan
Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.
The only true wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing.
Re-examine all you have been told . . . Dismiss what insults your Soul.
Thanks to Ken Lam
True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.
And in knowing that you know nothing, that makes you the smartest of all.
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.
Anonymous (Greek Proverb)
Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.
Helena Petrova Blavatsky
Be humble, if thou would'st attain to Wisdom. Be humbler still, when Wisdom thou hast mastered.
Wisdom is knowing the truth, and telling it.
Wisdom is the reward for a lifetime of listening ... when you'd have preferred to talk.
General Omar Bradley
Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.
