Sammy Davis, Jr.
Mixing one’s wines may be a mistake, but old and new wisdom mix admirably.

Lianne La Havas
I consider wisdom supernatural because it isn’t taught by men – it’s a gift from God.
Wisdom does not show itself so much in precept as in life – in firmness of mind and a mastery of appetite. It teaches us to do as well as to talk; and to make our words and actions all of a color.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Cunning… is but the low mimic of wisdom.
Almost every wise saying has an opposite one, no less wise, to balance it.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Wisdom is found only in truth.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A few years ago you couldn’t go from TV to film. It was like a ‘no no’ but I believe when you find a plan and purpose that God has for your life, there’s not anything man can do to you.

A mouse does not rely on just one hole.
Critical in this process of wisdom being passed down is that you also need to take it in; you need to listen to it.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery
There is a difference between happiness and wisdom: he that thinks himself the happiest man is really so; but he that thinks himself the wisest is generally the greatest fool.
When you’re young, you wonder what all these old people are droning on about, trying to impart their wisdom. It’s not relevant to you because being young is such a specific thing. Thank God for that. Thank God for the young people who go out and demonstrate against rampant capitalism or whatever.

Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Thomas A. Edison

The current wisdom now is that if the three networks are covering the news the same way the difference is the anchor people. I think that won’t be true in the future.
Humanity’s legacy of stories and storytelling is the most precious we have. All wisdom is in our stories and songs. A story is how we construct our experiences. At the very simplest, it can be: ‘He/she was born, lived, died.’ Probably that is the template of our stories – a beginning, middle, and end. This structure is in our minds.
Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.
Sorrow is knowledge, those that know the most must mourn the deepest, the tree of knowledge is not the tree of life.

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
Learning how to get in tune with your field of energy and understand how to create your energy, expand that energy, and move that energy through your body.

There is a trade off – as you grow older you gain wisdom but you lose spontaneity.
What’s different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio, now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders. It’s all part of the suffocating spin cycle we’re in. In media, politics and publishing, the conventional wisdom is to play to this base.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

George S. Patton
Does wisdom perhaps appear on the earth as a raven which is inspired by the smell of carrion?
The arts, quite simply, nourish the soul. They sustain, comfort, inspire. There is nothing like that exquisite moment when you first discover the beauty of connecting with others in celebration of larger ideals and shared wisdom.
If they can prove that I am wrong by that time, I will give it up to their wisdom, but not after to any one’s judgment, till I see the end of another year; for the Lord will begin with a new century; and I will see what he will do, before I will hearken to any man’s judgment.

You know, it’s sort of common wisdom among New York publishers that short story collections don’t make money.
I’m exploring the maturity, the wisdom that just comes from having gone around the sun 50 times. My experience is, ‘Oh, I’m never really going to get it right. I’m never going to get it done. But that’s not the point here.’ The point is the journey.
Where can we find greater structural clarity than in the wooden buildings of old? Where else can we find such unity of material, construction and form? here, the wisdom of whole generations is stored.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Bruce Bueno de Mesquita
I don’t believe in a golden mean; I don’t believe you find policy wisdom between two polar points. I don’t dismiss that possibility, but I look at the platform that’s so ideologically based, that’s so dismissive of facts, of evidence, of science, and it’s frankly hard to take seriously.
Thomas E. Mann
A grandparent can be simply affirming. A grandparent has been there, done that child-raising stuff, and has the wisdom of experience. And so in some ways, they’re free to love without the anxiety of being the actual parents. They’re free to give.

I’m not an academic philosopher, and don’t agree with the way the universities approach the subject. I’m a philosopher only in the very loose sense of someone interested in wisdom and well-being attained through reason. But I’m as interested in psychoanalysis and art as I am in philosophy.
Alain de Botton
We thought, because we had power, we had wisdom.
Stephen Vincent Benet

Heber J. Grant
Contrary to conventional wisdom, the blue blazer’s a bit of a loose cannon. A suit decided long ago what it wanted to be, and it doesn’t want to hear your ideas, but a blue blazer only got around to half the job. So it leaves it up to you to find its bottoms. Gray slacks, blue jeans, patterns, white pants and different blue shades all work.
