About wisdom

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.

~Isaac Asimov

It is easier to find a score of men wise enough to discover the truth than to find one intrepid enough, in the face of opposition, to stand up for it.

~A.A. Hodge

Wisdom consists of the anticipation of consequences.

 ~Norman Cousins

Wisdom comes by disillusionment.

~George Santayana

Wisdom outweighs any wealth.

~Sophocles

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

Audrey Hepburn

He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the universe.

Marcus Aurelius

  1. So true, and we have to practice these elements of speech and the way we see others. We must see through the illusions of fear constantly presented to us. Wisdom comes in a group. Rarely do we find one who bases their life on the pursuit of it.

  2. These are all terrific quotes, a bit sad in some sense in their honesty and truth…especially “science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”

  3. A personal adaptation of your first quote…
    The saddest aspect of life right now is that technology facilitates communication faster than our society makes time to listen and reflect upon the conversations.

  4. Gosh, these quotes are so meaningful to me, thank you. You blog is so easy to explore and filled with interesting topics. I hope I can pick up some tips…just getting started. I love that I’m inspired by something you posted a couple years ago. Any words from the wise on blogging to share?
