Wisdom & Knowledge

Mind moves matter.

Our life is what our thoughts make it.

Wisdom is acquired by an inquiring mind.

A man who does not think for himself does not think at all.

The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their true names.

Besides learning to see, there is another art to be learned - not to see what is not.

In the practical use of our intellect, forgetting is as important as remembering.

Genius means little more than the faculty of perceiving in an unhabitual way.

All genius is a conquering of chaos and mystery.

Knowledge is the antidote to fear.

Ignorance is the womb of monsters.

Ignorance is not bliss, it is oblivion.

Where there is a feast of words there is often a famine of wisdom.

The truth and rapture of man are holy things, not lightly to be scorned. A carelessness of life and beauty mark the glutton, the idler, and the fool in their deadly path across history.

Greater understanding increases the capacity for tolerance.

Wisdom is the supreme part of happiness.

Have the courage to be wise.

Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom. - Theodore Isaac Rubin

Wisdom begins with wonder. - Socrates
