Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day; wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.
Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand.
The Passions are like Fire and Water ; good Servants, but bad Masters.
Wisdom comes alone through suffering.
Only from the heart Can you touch the sky.
Wisdom begins in wonder.
It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.
Nothing is unattainable by the truthful.
Strength cannot keep pace with intelligence.
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
He who is not prepared today will be less so tomorrow.
The man who is swimming against the stream knows the strength of it.
It is no profit to have learned well, if you neglect to do well.
True wisdom is to know what is best worth knowing, and to do what is best worth doing.
The wise man looks into space and does not regard the small as too little, nor the great as too big, for he knows that, there is no limit to dimensions.
When I can look Life in the eyes,
Grown calm and very coldly wise,
Life will have given me the Truth,
And taken in exchange - my youth.
Learn what is true in order to do what is right.
Thomas Henry Huxley
We forge the chains we wear in life.
He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.
J. R. R. Tolkien
No thing great is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen.
The wise speak only of what they know.
J. R. R. Tolkien
The doors of wisdom are never shut.
Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd have preferred to talk.
Learning, accompanied by humility, is the ornament of ornaments.
He who speaks of other's faults proclaims his own defect.
The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man be perfected without trials.
Wise men, though all laws were abolished, would lead the same lives.
No mirror ever became iron again; No bread ever became wheat; No ripened grape ever became sour fruit. Mature yourself and be secure from a change for the worse. Become the light.
A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study.
He that blows the coals in quarrels that he has nothing to do with, has no right to complain if the sparks fly in his face.
