Raphael paints wisdom; Handel sings it, Phidias carves it, Shakespeare writes it, Wren builds it, Columbus sails it, Luther preaches it, Washington arms it, Watt mechanizes it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A wise man will see to it that his acts always seem voluntary and not done by compulsion, however much he may be compelled by necessity.
It is more easy to be wise for others than for ourselves.
Wisdom is meaningless until your own experience has given it meaning and there is wisdom in the selection of wisdom.
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
