A Quote by Paulo Coelho on women, imagination, creativity, witchcraft, hysteria, wisdom, and wise women

Our imagination is larger than the world around us; we go beyond our limits.  This used to be called 'witchcraft,' but fortunately things have changed, otherwise we would both already have been burned at the stake.  When they stopped burning women, science found an explanation for our behavior, normally referred to as 'female hysteria.'  We don't get burned anymore, but it does cause problems, especially in the workplace.  But don't worry, eventually they'll call it 'wisdom.'

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on love, imagination, wisdom, loneliness, alone, and life

Love is fed by the imagination, by which we become wiser than we know, better than we feel, nobler than we are: by which we can see Life as a whole: by which, and by which alone, we can understand others in their real as in their ideal relations.

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

A Quote by Dan on faith, wisdom, universe, spirituality, and love

Faith is our direct link to universal wisdom, reminding us that we know more than we have heard or read or studied that we have only to look, listen, and trust the love and wisdom of the Universal Spirit working through us all.

As my Buddhist teachers have shown me, wisdom emerges in the space around words as much as from language itself.

A Quote by Henry Miller on greatness, self, wisdom, destiny, guidance, and teacher

No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.

A Quote by Edmund J Bourne on awakening, wisdom, worldview, global shift, healing, meaning, and purpose

Listen to what your higher wisdom has to say about how you can deepen your participation in the global shift--through personal healing, changing your worldview, or finding ways to help others and the environment. This is how you can both heal yourself and help humanity. At their deepest level, the two are joined and ready to awaken to a new world.

I would go out into the desert. The desert was my teacher. I didn't know about gurus and wise people—I wasn't a reader.

A Quote by Adyashanti on wisdom, love, knowledge, and life

Wisdom without love is like having lungs but no air to breathe. Do not seek wisdom in order to acquire knowledge but in order to live and love more fully.
