Charles Spurgeon

Therese Fowler

Buddha

Always keep an open mind and a compassionate heart.

Phil Jackson

Because you are women, people will force their thinking on you, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don’t live in the shadows of people’s judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom.

I find the fact that billionaires are quoted as if the fact that they are billionaires gives them some kind of wisdom is outrageous.

Ben Elton

Quick decisions are unsafe decisions.

Sophocles

First a piece of Irish wisdom: you should always listen to a bookie. For they have a saying, ‘Money tells a good story,’ and somewhere in their odds is a kind of science-fiction existentialism that decrees that we, the people, know everything. In other words, betting patterns often make for good, unconscious soothsaying.

Frank Delaney

The superior man blames himself. The inferior man blames others.

Thornton Wilder

I probably wouldn’t be a songwriter if I didn’t grow up the way I did. It was difficult and it was at times very scary to grow up in a household so unsettled and at times very violent. But, it also, I guess it earned me a sort of wisdom at a young age that’s served me well.

Suzanne Somers

Knowledge which is divorced from justice, may be called cunning rather than wisdom.
