Words Of Wisdom Quotes

Words are but the signs of ideas.
- Quote by Samuel Johnson

One great use of words is to hide our thoughts.
- Quote by Voltaire

Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
- Quote by Jimi Hendrix

Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.
- Quote by Kahlil Gibran

What words say does not last. The words last. Because words are always the same, and what they say is never the same.
- Quote by Antonio Porchia

He can compress the most words into the smallest idea of any man I know.
- Quote by Abraham Lincoln

The virtue of justice consists in moderation, as regulated by wisdom.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle

Excellence, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean, relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle

All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Kahlil Gibran

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Kahlil Gibran

Short words are best and the old words when short are best of all.
- Quote by Winston Churchill

Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.
- Quote by Voltaire

Pain and foolishness lead to great bliss and complete knowledge, for Eternal Wisdom created nothing under the sun in vain.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Kahlil Gibran

Liberty, equality - bad principles! The only true principle for humanity is justice; and justice to the feeble is protection and kindness.
- Quote by Winston Churchill

Jealousy is both reasonable and belongs to reasonable men, while envy is base and belongs to the base, for the one makes himself get good things by jealousy, while the other does not allow his neighbour to have them through envy.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
- Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer

One merit of poetry few persons will deny: it says more and in fewer words than prose.
- Quote by Voltaire

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Mahatma Gandhi

The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Kahlil Gibran

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
- Quote by Albert Einstein

Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.
- Quote by Benjamin Franklin

The language of friendship is not words but meanings.
- Quote by Henry David Thoreau

Words are also actions, and actions are a kind of words.
- Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it...always.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Mahatma Gandhi

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle

The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready.
- Quote by Henry David Thoreau

It is much more comfortable to be mad and know it, than to be sane and have one's doubts.
- Quote by G. B. Burgin

Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.
- Unknown

Love has features which pierce all hearts, he wears a bandage which conceals the faults of those beloved. He has wings, he comes quickly and flies away the same.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Voltaire

Heav'n hath no rage like love to hatred turn'd, Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorn'd.
- Quote by William Congreve

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle

Always do right- this will gratify some and astonish the rest.
- Quote by Mark Twain

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
- Quote by Mark Twain

It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Mahatma Gandhi

The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently; but he is willing, in great crises, to give even his life - knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle

Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.
- Quote by John F. Kennedy

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.
- Quote by Isaac Asimov

Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.
- Quote by Albert Einstein

The secret of success is to know something nobody else knows.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle Onassis

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
- Quote by Henry David Thoreau

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
- Quote by Henry Ford

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.
- Quote by Confucius

In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle

Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life.
- Quote by Sandra Carey

The key to wisdom is knowing all the right questions.
- Quote by John A. Simone, Sr.

Consciously or unconsciously, every one of us does render some service or other. If we cultivate the habit of doing this service deliberately, our desire for service will steadily grow stronger, and will make, not only our own happiness, but that of the world at large.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Mahatma Gandhi

Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
- Quote by Will Durant

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.
- Quote by Oscar Wilde

Of all the things which wisdom provides to make life entirely happy, much the greatest is the possession of friendship.
- Quote by Epicurus

Wisdom stands at the turn in the road and calls upon us publicly, but we consider it false and despise its adherents.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Kahlil Gibran

Seven sins of life: Politics without principle. Commerce without morality. Wealth without work. Education without character. Science without humanity. Pleasure without conscience. Worship without sacrifice.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Mahatma Gandhi

A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both." - Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower

Courageous, untroubled, mocking and violent-that is what Wisdom wants us to be. Wisdom is a woman, and loves only a warrior.
- Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche

Blessed is the man, who having nothing to say, abstains from giving wordy evidence of the fact.
- Quote by George Eliot

The highest form of wisdom is kindness.
- Quote by The Talmud quotes

The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.
- Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Anger and intolerance are the twin enemies of correct understanding.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Mahatma Gandhi

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.
- Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte

Not to have control over the senses is like sailing in a rudderless ship, bound to break to pieces on coming in contact with the very first rock.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Mahatma Gandhi

Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo.
- Quote by H. G. Wells

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.
- Quote by Reinhold Niebuhr

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
- Quote by Sir Winston Churchill

A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Mahatma Gandhi

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
- Quote by Antoine de Saint Exupery

Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.
- Quote by David Starr Jordan

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.
- Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte

Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech.
- Quote by Martin Fraquhar Tupper

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side.
- Quotes of Wisdom by Aristotle

We seem to gain wisdom more readily through our failures than through our successes. We always think of failure as the antithesis of success, but it isn't. Success often lies just the other side of failure.
- Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia

Knowing others is wisdom,
knowing yourself is enlightenment.
- Quote by Lao Tzu
