Wisdom Quotes

Wisdom is nothing but a preparation of the soul, a capacity, a secret art of thinking, feeling and breathing thoughts of unity at every moment of life.

Herman Hesse

Both in thought and in feeling, even though time be real, to realize the unimportance of time is the gate of wisdom.

Bertrand Russell

Wisdom is not in words; Wisdom is meaning within words.

Kahlil Gibran

It is fortune, not wisdom, that rules man's life.

Cicero

“In the vain laughter of folly, wisdom hears half its applause.”

T.S. Eliot

Late, I learned that when reason died, then Wisdom was born; before that liberation, I had only knowledge.

Sri Aurobindo

Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.

Buddha

For when God said, Let there be light, and there was light, if we are justified in understanding in this light the creation of the angels, then certainly they were created partakers of the eternal light which is the unchangeable Wisdom of God, by which all things were made, and whom we call the only-begotten Son of God; so that they, being illumined by the Light that created them, might themselves become light and be called Day, in participation of that unchangeable Light and Day which is the Word of God, by whom both themselves and all else were made. The true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world, this Light lighteth also every pure angel, that he may be light not in himself, but in God; from whom if an angel turn away, he becomes impure, as are all those who are called unclean spirits, and are no longer light in the Lord, but darkness in themselves, being deprived of the participation of Light eternal. For evil has no positive nature; but the loss of good has received the name evil.

St. Augustine of Hippo

Who is like the wise man? Who knows the explanation of things? Wisdom brightens a man's face and changes its hard appearance

Bible

Some signs of understanding are: clemency, knowledge, and silence. Silence is one of the doors to wisdom. It brings about love and is evidence for all good.

Ali al-Rida

Dedication and responsibility, Far beyond the laws governed by man, Releases the power within you, To attain all the wisdom of the universe

Christine Lane

It requires wisdom to understand wisdom; the music is nothing if the audience is deaf

Walter Lippmann

All free governments are managed by the combined wisdom and folly of the people

James Abram Garfield

Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.

James Allen

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