Thoughts of Wisdom

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.  (Socrates)

By three methods we may learn wisdom:  First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.  (Confucius)

Patience is the communion of wisdom.  (Saint Augustine)
