A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on success, power, wisdom, love, and god

Success is not rightly measured by the worldly standards of wealth, prestige and power.  None of these bestow happiness unless they are rightly used.  To use them rightly one must possess wisdom and love for God and man.

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952)

A Quote by Montague Whitsel on awareness, imagination, life, magic, quest, self, soul, spirit, time, winter, and wisdom

Mid-December is thus one of the most positively magical times of the year.  Things are possible during December's darkening days that are not even dreamt of at other spokes of the Wheel of the Year.  We should use this magic as a vehicle for deepening our awareness of the world around us and preparing our souls for the ongoing pilgrimage of our lives.  A seeker of Wisdom in the thrall of Winter's Solstice should consider their celebrations as a spiritual pilgrimage or even a quest, during which, through the disciplined use of the spiritual imagination, he or she may encounter one's own truest self along the way and in communion with Spirit.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on strength, winning, struggle, hardships, surrender, and wisdom

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop
your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not
to surrender, that is strength.

A Quote by Norman Cousins on libraries, wisdom, and the birth of ideas

    The library is not a shrine for the worship of books.  It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual.  A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life. 

Norman Cousins (1912 - 1990)

If you are bitter you are like a dry leaf that you can squash and you can blow away by the wind.  There is much more wisdom in forgiveness.

A Quote by J. R. R. Tolkien on wisdom


It's wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope.
