It is easier to be wise for others than for ourselves.
François de La Rochefoucauld
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom.
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.
We don’t receive wisdom;
we must discover it for ourselves after a journey
that no one can take for us or spare us.
The fool doth think he is wise,
but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.
People who know little are usually great talkers,
while men who know much say little.
The more I read, the more I acquire,
the more certain I am that I know nothing.
It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom.
It is healthy to be reminded
that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.
