The invariable mark of wisdom
"The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Wisdom outweighs any wealth."
"A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study."
"No man was ever wise by chance."
"Wisdom is never on the menu, you have to own the restaurant."
"Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification."
Martin H. Fischer
"Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life."
"A man only becomes wise when he begins to calculate the approximate depth of his ignorance."
Gian Carlo Menotti
"I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday."
"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."
"A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion."
"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."
