Wisdom Quotes

I know how men in exile feed on dreams of hope.
Aeschylus
Power operates only destructively, bent always on forcing every manifestation of life into the straitjacket of its laws. Its intellectual form of expression is dead dogma, its physical form brute force. And this unintelligence of its objectives sets its stamp on its supporters also and renders them stupid and brutal, even when they were originally endowed with the best of talents. One who is constantly striving to force everything into a mechanical order at last becomes a machine himself and loses all human feeling.
Rudolph Rocker
Engineering is the art or science of making practical.
Samuel C. Florman
Adversity is the trial of principle. Without it a man hardly knows whether he is honest or not.
Henry Fielding
He who is in love is wise and is becoming wiser, sees newly every time he looks at the object beloved, drawing from it with his eyes and his mind those virtues which it possesses.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nicky A lot of holes in the desert, and a lot of problems are buried in those holes. But you gotta do it right. I mean, you gotta have the hole already dug before you show up with a package in the trunk. Otherwise, you're talking about a half-hour to forty-five minutes worth of digging. And who knows who's gonna come along in that time Pretty soon, you gotta dig a few more holes. You could be there all f***in' night.
Casino
Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.
Thomas Jefferson
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.
Confucius
You got to be careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there.
Lawrence Peter Berra
Three things it is best to avoid a strange dog, a flood, and a man who thinks he is wise.
Welsh Proverb
A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.
Francis Bacon
She knows there's no success like failure And that failure's no success at all.
Paul Aubuchon
Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it.
Henry Ford
It was the same with those old birds in Greece and Rome as it is now. The only thing new in the world is the history you don't know.
Harry S Truman
The state exists for man, not man for the state. The same may be said of science. These are old phrases, coined by people who saw in human individuality the highest human value. I would hesitate to repeat them, were it not for the ever recurring danger that they may be forgotten, especially in these days of organization and stereotypes.
Albert Einstein
Common sense in an uncommon degree and is what the world calls wisdom.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
