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

~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
