The truest greatness lies in being kind, the truest wisdom in a happy mind.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.

One’s first step in wisdom is to question everything – and one’s last is to come to terms with everything.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for anyone else.
The secret of creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be truly fulfilled.
Doubt is the beginning, not the end, of wisdom.
It requires wisdom to understand wisdom; the music is nothing if the audience is deaf.
Let go, let go of feeling helpless, let go of worry. Healing is a spiritual practice, an exercise in confidence, strength, and love.
Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life.
We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.
