Pain and foolishness lead to great bliss and complete knowledge, for Eternal Wisdom created nothing under the sun in vain.

Kahlil Gibran

He dares to be a fool, and that is the first step in the direction of wisdom.

James Gibbons Huneker

Necessity teaches wisdom, while prosperity makes fools.

Wellins Calcott

Mixing one's wines may be a mistake, but old and new wisdom mix admirably

Bertolt Brecht

If a person tells me he has been to the worst places I have no reason to judge him; but if he tells me it was his superior wisdom that enabled him to go there, then I know he is a fraud.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

A fence to wisdom is silence.

Akiba ben Joseph

National parks and reserves are an integral aspect of intelligent use of natural resources. It is the course of wisdom to set aside an ample portion of our natural resources as national parks and reserves, thus ensuring that future generations may know the majesty of the earth as we know it today.

John F. Kennedy

Wisdom is to the soul what health is to the body.

De Saint-Real

The extreme limit of wisdom, that's what the public calls madness.

Jean Cocteau

Wisdom understands that in a world of ecological interconnectedness there is no such things as ìaway.î We donít throw things ìaway,î we simply put them someplace where they defile the land, foul the water, pollute the air or change the earthís atmosphere

Brian Walsh & Sylvia Keesmaat

Distrust everyone in whom the impulse to punish is powerful! Does wisdom perhaps appear on the earth as a raven which is inspired by the smell of carrion?

Friedrich Nietzsche

The path to god is the path of righteousness. While its true no one is righteous, you can try to walk the path. That simply means doing whats right but its tricky since you cant consider yourself righteous without being self-righteous. You would have to do it for other people and/or God. In order to know what the right thing to do is, you will also have to gain wisdom. Wisdom is gained by understanding. Its a more difficult path then it seems and mine has unfortunately been blocked by darkness. Good luck.

James Dye

Knowledge is going to make you stronger. Knowledge is going to let you control your life. Knowledge is going to give you the wisdom to teach their children. Knowledge is the thing that makes you smile in the face of disaster.

Avery Brooks

In times past there were rituals of passage that conducted a boy into manhood, where other men passed along the wisdom and responsibilities that needed to be shared. But today we have no rituals. We are not conducted into manhood; we simply find ourselves there.

Kent Nerburn

I keep my friends as misers do their treasure, because of all things granted us by wisdom, none is greater or better than friendship.
