Top Wise Word Quotes

Wise Word Quotes By Fanny Kelly

Mother! what a world of affection is comprised in that single word; how little do we in the giddy round of youthful pleasure and folly heed her wise counsels. How lightly do we look upon that zealous care with which she guides our otherwise erring feet, watches with feelings which none but a mother can know the gradual expansion of our youth to the riper yours of discretion. We may not think of it then, but it will be recalled to our minds in after years, when the gloomy grave or a fearful living separation has placed her far beyond our reach, and her sweet voice of sympathy and consolation for the various ills attendant upon us sounds in our ears no more. How deeply then we regret a thousand deeds that we have done contrary to her gentle admonitions! How we sign for those days once more, that we may retrieve what we have done amiss and make her kind heart glad with happiness! Alas! once gone they can never be recalled, and we grow mournfully sad with the bitter reflection. — Fanny Kelly

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The word of God is full of assurance. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

What are we fighting for?. We bring nothing into the world, we will take nothing into the grave. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Henry Miller

The word which gives the key to the national vice is waste. And people who are wasteful are not wise, neither can they remain young and vigorous. In order to transmute energy to higher and more subtle levels one must first conserve it. — Henry Miller

Wise Word Quotes By Robert Jordan

Ragan gave him a guarded look that said he agreed with every word but strongly doubted Uno's wisdom in voicing them. Ragan, it seemed, had the makings of a wise man in him. — Robert Jordan

Wise Word Quotes By Louisa May Alcott

This household happiness did not come all at once, but John and Meg had found the key to it, and each year of married life taught them how to use it, unlocking the treasuries of real home love and mutual helpfulness, which the poorest may possess, and the richest cannot buy. This is the sort of shelf on which young wives and mothers may consent to be laid, safe from the restless fret and fever of the world, finding loyal lovers in the little sons and daughters who cling to them, undaunted by sorrow, poverty, or age, walking side by side, through fair and stormy weather, with a faithful friend, who is, in the true sense of the good old Saxon word, the 'house-band,' and learning, as Meg learned, that a woman's happiest kingdom is home, her highest honor the art of ruling it not as a queen, but as a wise wife and mother. — Louisa May Alcott

Wise Word Quotes By Winston S. Churchill

There are few words which are used more loosely than the word "Civilization." What does it mean? It means a society based upon the opinion of civilians. It means that violence, the rule of warriors and despotic chiefs, the conditions of camps and warfare, of riot and tyranny, give place to parliaments where laws are made, and independent courts of justice in which over long periods those laws are maintained. That is Civilization - and in its soil grow continually freedom, comfort, and culture. When Civilization reigns, in any country, a wider and less harassed life is afforded to the masses of the people. The traditions of the past are cherished, and the inheritance bequeathed to us by former wise or valiant men becomes a rich estate to be enjoyed and used by all. — Winston S. Churchill

Wise Word Quotes By John Geddes

If you don't regard your word as a sacred covenant, then there is nothing in you I can honor ... — John Geddes

Wise Word Quotes By Piet Hein

Let the world pass in its time-ridden race;
never get caught in its snare.
Remember, the only acceptable case
for being in any particular place
is having no business there. — Piet Hein

Wise Word Quotes By Anonymous

A wise man hears one word and understands two. — Anonymous

Wise Word Quotes By A.W. Tozer

In the Scriptures there is practically no effort made to define faith. Outside of a brief fourteen-word definition in Hebrews 11:1, I know of no Biblical definition, and even there faith is defined functionally, not philosophically; that is, it is a statement of what faith is in operation, not what it is in essence. It assumes the presence of faith and shows what it results in, rather than what it is. We will be wise to go just that far and attempt to go no further. — A.W. Tozer

Wise Word Quotes By Judith Briles

There's writing power in one word sentences and one sentence paragraphs. Wise authors use them. -Judith Briles — Judith Briles

Wise Word Quotes By Kabir

Reading books everyone died, none became any wise.
One who reads the word of Love, only becomes wise. — Kabir

Wise Word Quotes By Arthur Helps

Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away. — Arthur Helps

Wise Word Quotes By Peter Kreeft

If we turn to the divine Conductor and follow the wise and loving baton that is His will, His Word, then the music of our life will be a symphony. — Peter Kreeft

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Don't live a day without your spiritual nourishment; mediation on the word of God. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Napoleon Bonaparte

Impossible is the word found only in a fool's dictionary. Wise people create opportunities for themselves and make everything possible ... — Napoleon Bonaparte

Wise Word Quotes By Matshona Dhliwayo

A word from the wise is better than a thesis from a fool. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The spirit of service is the heart of humanity. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Amy Case

When the teachings of men conflict with the Word of God, it would be wise to go with God. -Henry M. Morris Ph.D. — Amy Case

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Freedom is a free decision. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Mary Church Terrell

The elective franchise is withheld from one half of its citizens ... because the word 'people,' by an unparalleled exhibition of lexicon graphical acrobatics, has been turned and twisted to mean all who were shrewd and wise enough to have themselves born boys instead of girls, or who took the trouble to be born white instead of black. — Mary Church Terrell

Wise Word Quotes By Kenneth Turan

What audiences end up with word-wise is a hackneyed, completely derivative copy of old Hollywood romances, a movie that reeks of phoniness and lacks even minimal originality. — Kenneth Turan

Wise Word Quotes By Joyce Meyer

No matter what other people may have told you that you are not, God delights in telling you in His Word who you are in Him - loved, valuable, precious, talented, gifted, capable, powerful, wise, and redeemed. I encourage you to take a moment and repeat those nine things out loud. Say, "I am loved, valuable, precious, talented, gifted, capable, powerful, wise, and redeemed." He has a good plan for you! Get excited about your life. You are created in God's image and you are amazing! — Joyce Meyer

Wise Word Quotes By J.R.R. Tolkien

But do not despise the lore that has come down from distant years; for oft it may chance that old wives keep in memory word of things that once were needful for the wise to know. — J.R.R. Tolkien

Wise Word Quotes By Addie Zierman

The "new evangelical" wears skinny jeans and earrings made from recycled beer caps. After all, she is acquiring a taste for Blue Moon and Chardonnay. She lives in a loft in the city and grows organic vegetables on her balcony because the earth belongs to God, and she wants to take care of it...She tries to keep things clean, language-wise, but she knows that sometimes the right word is f***. — Addie Zierman

Wise Word Quotes By Charles Spurgeon

He who is surety is never sure himself. Take advice, and never be security for more than you are quite willing to lose. Remember the word of the wise man: He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it; and he that hateth suretyship is sure. — Charles Spurgeon

Wise Word Quotes By Confucius

For one word a man is often deemed to be wise, and for one word he is often deemed to be foolish. We should be careful indeed what we say. — Confucius

Wise Word Quotes By Jaeda DeWalt

When we have the disease to please, the word, "Yes" can taste of resentment. We need to take care of ourselves, first, so we can give from a place of abundance. When we give ourselves away to everyone else, first, we having nothing left, with which, to nourish ourselves. This can lead to feelings of bitterness and resentment. Giving to others should be a joyous and enriching experience. — Jaeda DeWalt

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Hard times prepares the willing soul for define destiny. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Bill Cosby

A word to the wise ain't ... — Bill Cosby

Wise Word Quotes By Zoroaster

Now the two primal Spirits, who reveal themselves in vision as Twins, are the Better and the Bad, in thought and word and action. Between these two the wise ones chose aright; the foolish not so. — Zoroaster

Wise Word Quotes By Jonathan Swift

No man of honor, as the word is usually understood, did ever pretend that his honor obliged him to be chaste or temperate, to pay his creditors, to be useful to his country, to do good to mankind, to endeavor to be wise or learned, to regard his word, his promise, or his oath. — Jonathan Swift

Wise Word Quotes By A. Vaidyanathan

word is like a sword; you should be wise when to use it or it'll kill and ruin everything you did in your past, you're doing at this time, and you're gonna do in the future — A. Vaidyanathan

Wise Word Quotes By Francis Bacon

I knew a wise man that had it for a by-word, when he saw men hasten to a conclusion, "Stay a little, that we may make an end the sooner." — Francis Bacon

Wise Word Quotes By Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra

O Don Quixote, wise as thou art brave,
La Mancha's splendor and of Spain the star!
To thee I say that if the peerless maid,
Dulcinea del Toboso, is to be restored
to the state that was once hers, it needs must be
that thy squire Sancho take on his bared behind,
those sturdy buttocks, must consent to take
three thousand lashes and three hundred more,
and well laid on, that they may sting and smart;
for those are the authors of her woe
have thus resolved, and that is why I've come,
This, gentles, is the word I bring to you. — Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra

Wise Word Quotes By Thich Nhat Hanh

A single wise word bringing peace to the listener is worth more than a thousand speeches of empty words. — Thich Nhat Hanh

Wise Word Quotes By Sholom Aleichem

A wise word is not a substitute for a piece of herring. — Sholom Aleichem

Wise Word Quotes By Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Oh, had I, weak and faint of speech, words to teach my fellow-creatures the beauty and capabilities of man's mind; could I, or could one more fortunate, breathe the magic word which would reveal to all the power, which we all possess, to turn evil to good, foul to fair; then vice and pain would desert the new-born world!

It is not thus: the wise have taught, the good suffered for us; we are still the same; and still our own bitter experience and heart-breaking regrets teach us to sympathize too feelingly with a tale like this. — Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Words are weapons. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Warren W. Wiersbe

Wise people listen to wise instruction, especially instruction from the Word of God. — Warren W. Wiersbe

Wise Word Quotes By Roald Dahl

There are many other little refinements too, Mr. Bohlen. You'll see them all when you study the plans carefully. For example, there's a trick that nearly every writer uses, of inserting at least one long, obscure word into each story. This makes the reader think that the man is very wise and clever. So I have the machine do the same thing. There'll be a whole stack of long words stored away just for this purpose."
In the 'word-memory' section," he said, epexegetically. — Roald Dahl

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The written word is greatest sacred documentation. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Terryl L. Givens

The first time the word worship appears in the King James Version of the Old Testament, it appears with appalling import. 'Abide ye here,' Abraham tells his servant, while 'I and the lad go yonder and worship.' The terrible offering of his son's life is what the Bible's first instance of 'worship' portends. In the New Testament, the word worship first appears again in conjunction with a costly offering. It is used in reference to the wise men, who 'worshipped' the Christ child by 'open[ing] their treasure' and 'present[ing] unto him gifts.' Worship, then, is about what we are prepared to relinquish--what we give up at personal cost. — Terryl L. Givens

Wise Word Quotes By Laura Fitton

A word to the wise: one, possibly two hashtags is usually plenty. Don't give in to the temptation to pack your Tweets full of hashtags, because all the hyperlinks and # signs get messy in bulk. — Laura Fitton

Wise Word Quotes By O. Henry

And here I have lamely related to you the uneventful chronicle of two foolish children in a flat who most unwisely sacrificed for each other the greatest treasures of their house. But in a last word to the wise of these days let it be said that of all who give gifts these two were the wisest. — O. Henry

Wise Word Quotes By Origen

But Paul, in his preaching of the Gospel, is a debtor to deliver the word not to Barbarians only, but also to Greeks, and not only to the unwise, who would easily agree with him, but also to the wise. — Origen

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Be strong in heart, spirit and mind. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Brendan Myers

Perhaps this is one of the last remaining strands of my Catholic upbringing, but to me the word 'worship' means absolute unquestioning affirmation of the authority of the deity. I'll not have that in my life. If you are wise, neither will you. — Brendan Myers

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

I believe in the word of God. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Richard Baxter

Make careful choice of the books which you read:
let the holy Scriptures ever have the preeminence.
Let Scripture be first and most in your hearts and
hands and other books be used as subservient to it.
While reading ask yourself:
1. Could I spend this time no better?
2. Are there better books that would edify me more?
3. Are the lovers of such a book as this the greatest
lovers of the Book of God and of a holy life?
4. Does this book increase my love to the Word of God,
kill my sin, and prepare me for the life to come?
"The words of the wise are like goads, their collected
sayings like firmly embedded nails - given by one Shepherd.
Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of
making many books there is no end, and much study
wearies the body." Ecclesiastes 12:11-12 — Richard Baxter

Wise Word Quotes By R.C. Sproul

The God of Christianity is sovereign, wise, righteous, and ultimately concerned with justice. Not only is God concerned with justice, He assumes the role of judge over us. It is axiomatic to Christianity that our actions will be judged. This theme is conspicuously absent in much Christian teaching today, yet it fills the New Testament and touches virtually every sermon of Jesus of Nazareth. We will be called into account for every idle word we speak. On the
final day, it will not be our consciences that will accuse or excuse us, but God Himself. — R.C. Sproul

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The journey of life pathways are best known by the Creator. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Justin Somper

Lorcan nodded, "It'ss a beautiful night," he said. "The stars have all come out for you, Darcy." He turned to go, then had a fresh thought. "Oh and Tempest, a word to the wise ... "
Grace was busily gathering up the edges of Darcy's train. "Yes?" she said, glancing up at Lorcan. "What is it Furey?"
Lorcan grinned."Just so you know, I've put down good money on you catching the wedding bouquet. I trust you wouldn't let me down!"
as he winked at her, Grace thought his eyes never looked so blue. They were eyes you could never tire from looking at- as deep and constant and infinite as the ocean itself. — Justin Somper

Wise Word Quotes By Julianne MacLean

You've been quiet, lass. Are you alive back there?'
All she could do was grunt with exasperation through the tight gag that was pressing down on her tongue.
'Aye, I know.' He nodded, as if he had understood every word. 'I was thinking about removing it, but something tells me you've been working up a mountain of complaints, so if it's all the same to you, I'll wait till we're somewhere more remote before I release that mouth of yours, so no one will hear your screeching.'
'I won't screech,' she tried to say, but it came out as a muffled grumble.
'What was that? You think I'm very wise? Aye, I think so, too. — Julianne MacLean

Wise Word Quotes By Julie Anne Long

Love.' What a wilderness of pain, of yearning, of loss could be contained in that word. Patient and kind nonsense, is how Lady Fennimore had put it. Love wasn't for cowards; he wondered if it was for the wise. He supposed love itself made you stupid at first, or no one, no one would ever fall in love at all. — Julie Anne Long

Wise Word Quotes By Margaret Of Valois

Love works in miracles every day: such as weakening the strong, and stretching the weak; making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools; favouring the passions, destroying reason, and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy. — Margaret Of Valois

Wise Word Quotes By Felix Wantang

A wise man nourishes his soul each morning with the word of God and enriches his day with God's wisdom. Psalm 19:7. — Felix Wantang

Wise Word Quotes By Lauren Oliver


Wise Word Quotes By Jack Kerouac

Poor examples because of mechanical needs of typing, of the flow of river sounds, words, dark, leading to the future and attesting to the madness, hollowness, ring and roar of my mind which blessed or unblessed is where trees sing
in a funny wind
well-being believes he'll go to heaven
a word to the wise is enough
'Smart went Crazy — Jack Kerouac

Wise Word Quotes By Sereda Aleta Dailey

Whenever a time arises where clarity is desired, it is always wise to reflect on the sage within. — Sereda Aleta Dailey

Wise Word Quotes By Gautama Buddha

The wise have mastered body, word, and mind. They are the true masters. — Gautama Buddha

Wise Word Quotes By Anonymous

those who are weak enough to think this a degrading task, and the time and labour which have been devoted to it misemployed, I shall content myself with opposing the authority of the greatest man of any age, JULIUS CAeSAR, of whom Bacon observes, that 'in his book of Apothegms which he collected, we see that he esteemed it more honour to make himself but a pair of tables, to take the wise and pithy words of others, than to have every word of his own to be made an apothegm or an oracle.' Having said thus much by way of introduction, I commit the following pages to the candour of the Publick. — Anonymous

Wise Word Quotes By SARK

A Gift for You
I send you ...
The gift of a letter from your wise self. This is the part of you that sees you with benevolent, loving eyes. You find this letter in a thick envelope with your name on it, and the word YES written boldly above your name.
My Dear,
I am writing this to remind you of your 'essence beauty.' This is the part of you that has nothing to do with age, occupation, weight, history, or pain. This is the soft, untouched, indelible you. You can love yourself in this moment, no matter what you have, or haven't done or been.
See past any masks, devices, or inventions that obscure your essence.
Remember your true purpose, WHICH is only Love.
If you cannot see or feel love, lie down now and cry; it will cleanse your vision and free your heart.
I love you; I am you. — SARK

Wise Word Quotes By Stuart Hill

I know you'll probably think it superstitious nonsense, Maggie, but I'm going to ask Oskan to perform ... " Thirrin shrugged her shoulders as she struggled to find the right word, "something ... a ceremony of some sort before we go into the trees. Something that'll help the people believe they're protected in some way."
"On the contrary, Madam, I agree with the idea," Maggiore answered and smiled. "It's wise to use everything you can to keep the citizens calm. I'll be there chanting whatever you want and waving around as much incense as you think necessary. — Stuart Hill

Wise Word Quotes By Virginia Woolf

Why does Samuel Butler say, 'Wise men never say what they think of women'? Wise men never say anything else apparently. — Virginia Woolf

Wise Word Quotes By Kimberly Dana

Middle school is kind of like Middle-earth. It's a magical journey filled with elves, dwarves, hobbits, queens, kings, and a few corrupt wizards. Word to the wise: pick your traveling companions well. Ones with the courage and moral fiber to persevere. Ones who wield their lip gloss like magic wands when confronted with danger. This way, when you pass through the congested hallways rife with pernicious diversion, you achieve your desired destination - or at least your next class.
-CeCee, Lucy and CeCee's How to Survive (and Thrive) in Middle School — Kimberly Dana

Wise Word Quotes By Benjamin Franklin

A word to the wise is enough, and many words won't fill a bushel. — Benjamin Franklin

Wise Word Quotes By Felix Wantang

A wiseman invests in something that lasts forever; the only investment that meets this criteria is the word of God. Matthew 24:35. — Felix Wantang

Wise Word Quotes By Nancy Wilson

The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge" (Proverbs 18:15). We see again this theme of seriously pursuing knowledge and wisdom. Prudence is a heart attitude, not an IQ level. It is not lazy, but is studying God's Word for more knowledge. I hope you have noticed how often these virtues are connected with knowledge and learning. A wise woman is acquiring knowledge, seeking knowledge, and increasing in learning. She is not intellectually lazy. "When — Nancy Wilson

Wise Word Quotes By Plautus

A word to the wise is enough. — Plautus

Wise Word Quotes By James Thurber

A drawing is always dragged down to the level of its caption.
A word to the wise is not sufficient if it doesn't make sense. — James Thurber

Wise Word Quotes By Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Is not the gospel its own sign and wonder? Is not this a miracle of miracles, that 'God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish'? Surely that precious word, 'Whosoever will, let him come and take the water of life freely' and that solemn promise, 'Him that cometh unto Me, I will in no wise cast out,' are better than signs and wonders! A truthful Saviour ought to be believed. He is truth itself. Why will you ask proof of the veracity of One who cannot lie? — Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Wise Word Quotes By Johann Kaspar Lavater

Who, in the midst of just provocation to anger, instantly finds the fit word which settles all around him in silence is more than wise or just; he is, were he a beggar, of more than royal blood, he is of celestial descent. — Johann Kaspar Lavater

Wise Word Quotes By George R R Martin

You told me that the children of the forest had the greensight. I remember."
"Some claimed to have that power. Their wise men were called greenseers."
"Was it magic?"
"Call it that for want of a better word, if you must. At heart it was only a different sort of knowledge."
Oh, to be sure, there is much we do not understand. The years pass in their hundreds and
their thousands, and what does any man see of life but a few summers, a few winters? We look at mountains and call them eternal, and so
they seem ... but in the course of time, mountains rise and fall, rivers change their courses, stars fall from the sky, and great cities sink
beneath the sea. Even gods die, we think. Everything changes.
So long as there was magic, anything could happen. Ghosts could walk, trees could talk, and broken boys could grow up to be knights. — George R R Martin

Wise Word Quotes By Albert Ellis

Neurosis is just a high-class word for whining. — Albert Ellis

Wise Word Quotes By Thomas Lynch

The bodies of the newly dead are not debris nor remnant, nor are they entirely icon or essence. They are, rather, changelings, incubates, hatchlings of a new reality that bear our names and dates, our image and likenesses, as surely in the eyes and ears of our children and grandchildren as did word of our birth in the ears of our parents and their parents. It is wise to treat such new things tenderly, carefully, with honor. — Thomas Lynch

Wise Word Quotes By Maria Edgeworth

My mother took too much, a great deal too much, care of me; she over-educated, over-instructed, over-dosed me with premature lessons of prudence: she was so afraid that I should ever do a foolish thing, or not say a wise one, that she prompted my every word, and guided my every action. So I grew up, seeing with her eyes, hearing with her ears, and judging with her understanding, till, at length, it was found out that I had not eyes, ears or understanding of my own. — Maria Edgeworth

Wise Word Quotes By Justin Wise

People no longer need to go to church to hear the Word, which has been the selling point for local churches for the past fifty years. Because of this, church is becoming less of a possessor of knowledge (commodity) and more a communal hub. — Justin Wise

Wise Word Quotes By Miguel De Cervantes

Good wits jump; a word to the wise is enough. — Miguel De Cervantes

Wise Word Quotes By Bob Kauflin

Every church or individual Christian who claims to be Spirit-led must be Word-fed. If we want to know more of the Spirit's power in our lives, we would be wise to fill ourselves with the riches of his — Bob Kauflin

Wise Word Quotes By Jeremiah

The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the Lord; and what wisdom is in them? — Jeremiah

Wise Word Quotes By Jon Kabat-Zinn

In Asian languages, the word for 'mind' and the word for 'heart' are same. So if you're not hearing mindfulness in some deep way as heartfulness, you're not really understanding it. Compassion and kindness towards oneself are intrinsically woven into it. You could think of mindfulness as wise and affectionate attention. — Jon Kabat-Zinn

Wise Word Quotes By William Wordsworth

Babylon, Learned and wise, hath perished utterly, Nor leaves her speech one word to aid the sigh That would lament her. — William Wordsworth

Wise Word Quotes By Wim Wenders

Final cut is overrated. Only fools keep insisting on always having the final word. The wise swallow their pride in order to get to the best possible cut. — Wim Wenders

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Anger is distress. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Munia Khan

Not every wall needs a ceiling — Munia Khan

Wise Word Quotes By Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The wisest word man reaches is the humblest he can speak. — Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Wise Word Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Begin to read and mediate on the word of God. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Wise Word Quotes By Evan Esar

A word to the wise is
unnecessary. — Evan Esar

Wise Word Quotes By Eliga H. Gould

A word to the wise an't nesisary its the stupid ones who need the edvise. — Eliga H. Gould

Wise Word Quotes By Karl Jaspers

The Greek word for philosopher (philosophos) connotes a distinction from sophos. It signifies the lover of wisdom (knowledge) as distinguished from him who considers himself wise in the possession of knowledge. This meaning of the word still endures: the essence of philosophy is not the possession of the truth but the search for truth ... Philosophy means to be on the way. Its questions are more essential than its answers, and every answer becomes a new question. — Karl Jaspers

Wise Word Quotes By Dorothy Parker

Lady, lady, never start
Conversation toward your heart;
Keep your pretty words serene;
Never murmur what you mean.
Show yourself, by word and look,
Swift and shallow as a brook.
Be as cool and quick to go
As a drop of April snow;
Be as delicate and gay
As a cherry flower in May.
Lady, lady, never speak
Of the tears that burn your cheek-
She will never win him, whose
Words had shown she feared to lose.
Be you wise and never sad,
You will get your lovely lad.
Never serious be, nor true,
And your wish will come to you-
And if that makes you happy, kid,
You'll be the first it ever did. — Dorothy Parker

Wise Word Quotes By Anonymous

18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart. — Anonymous

Wise Word Quotes By Francis Chan

The wise man comes to God without saying a word and stands in awe of Him. — Francis Chan

Wise Word Quotes By E. E. Cummings

Let it go
the smashed word broken open vow or the oath cracked length wise
let it go it was sworn to go let them go
the truthful liars and the false fair friends and the boths and neithers
you must let them go they were born to go let all go
the big small middling tall bigger really the biggest and all things
let all go dear so comes love — E. E. Cummings

Wise Word Quotes By Victor Hugo

Each of our passions, even love, has a stomach that must not be overloaded. We must in everything write the word 'finis' in time; we must restrain ourselves, when it becomes urgent; we must draw the bolt on the appetite, play a fantasia on the violin, then break the strings with our own hand. The Wise man is he who knows when and how to stop. — Victor Hugo

Wise Word Quotes By Anuj

Something that is said with the word "YOU" is truly heard by a very few and, that too, listened only of someone who leads a very simple life and regularly says the things refreshingly new because "You" has a tone and texture of an ADVICE, which everyone tries to give than take from others as almost all consider themselves to be WISE. — Anuj

Wise Word Quotes By R.A. Torrey

The truly wise man is he who believes the Bible against the opinions of any man. If the Bible says one thing, and any body of men says another, the wise man will decide, "This book is the Word of him who cannot lie". — R.A. Torrey

Wise Word Quotes By Deyth Banger

Why people use "Was" I have heard some people to say "I was a smart kid at school - Eminem", but why "Was", was is a word for describing the past... which will mean that has started and ended... so what??? How to get it now? You aren't wise, are you? — Deyth Banger
