Ten Wisdom Quotes

Wisdom Quotes

Here are ten thought-provoking quotes that I have collected over the last couple of months.

“Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else … Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”

Hermann Hesse

“The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and how he treats people who can’t fight back.”

Abigail Van Buren

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”


“Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.”

John Lennon

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”


“You do not write your life with words…You write it with actions. What you think is not important. It is only important what you do.”

Patrick Ness

“Knowing others is intelligence; Knowing yourself is true wisdom; Mastering others is strength; Mastering yourself is true power”

Lau Tzu

“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.”

Roy T.Bennet

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”

Albert Einstein

“Don’t waste your time with explanations: people only hear what they want to hear.”

Paulo Coelho
