wisdom

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on potential, sculpture, silence, wisdom, and wit

Silence is as full of potential wisdom and wit as the unhewn marble of great sculpture. The silent bear no witness against themselves.

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on facts, nonsense, wisdom, and words

Facts are ventriloquists' dummies. Sitting on a wise man's knee they may be made to utter words of wisdom; elsewhere they say nothing, or talk nonsense, or indulge in sheer nonsense.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on beauty, existence, feeling, knowledge, men, religion, and wisdom

To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull facilities can comprehend only in the most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness. In this sense, and in this sense only, I belong to the ranks of the devoutly religious men.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on beauty, existence, fear, feeling, knowledge, life, mystery, religion, and wisdom

The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it be with fear, has also given rise to religion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.

A Quote by Alan Paton on books, death, life, men, purpose, struggle, understanding, wisdom, and words

Who knows for what we live, struggle and die?. . . Wise men write many books, in words too hard to understand. But this, the purpose of our lives, the end of all our struggle, is beyond all human wisdom.

A Quote by Akhnaton [Ikhnaton or Akhenaton] on ignorance, mind, and wisdom

True wisdom is less presuming than folly. The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate, and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance.

A Quote by Akhnaton [Ikhnaton or Akhenaton] on caring, mind, satisfaction, trouble, and wisdom

To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.

A Quote by Aeschylus on despair, god, grace, heart, learning, pain, sleep, suffering, and wisdom

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our despair, against our own will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
