here are some of my favorite quotes
Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor.
A word to the wise ain’t necessary – it’s the stupid ones that need the advice.
A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether.
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
Be happy. It’s one way of being wise.
Tell me I’m clever, Tell me I’m kind, Tell me I’m talented, Tell me I’m cute, Tell me I’m sensitive, Graceful and wise, Tell me I’m perfect – But tell me the truth.
Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.
It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see.
The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.
A hero is born among a hundred, a wise man is found among a thousand, but an accomplished one might not be found even among a hundred thousand men.
If you wish to succeed in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius.
