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.
Mohandas K. Gandhi

Whenever you have truth it must be given with love, or the message and the messenger will be rejected.

Dale E. Turner
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire 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.
It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.
Robert Green Ingersoll
