Obviously, there is no shortage of information these days. And in my opinion, there is also no shortage of thinkers and comprehenders, rather we have a shortage of wisdom. The wisdom to apply the knowledge we have acquired, to live in harmony, in peace, and love with self and with others. We Need the Wisdom to Live
But because we lack the wisdom to understand the purpose of life and how best to live it, many people are trapped in error and delusion. Non the less, let these most powerful words of wisdom lead us to reflections.
In this short post, I want to encourage us with the most powerful words of wisdom to reflect upon. I believe that we can learn from everything, and anywhere when we tune our minds to learning and to seeking wisdom. And I also believe that we will learn something from these quotes that can bring change. Enjoy it!
“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” CONFUCIUS
“The price of greatness is responsibility.” SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL
How awkward it is that some people want to be great by avoiding responsibility.
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.” – Henry van Dyke
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.
“The only way that we can live is if we grow. The only way we can grow is if we change. The only way we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we are exposed is if we throw ourselves into the open.” – C. Joybell
My silence means I am tired of fighting and now there is nothing left to fight for. My silence means I am tired of explaining my feelings to you, but now I don’t have the energy to explain them anymore. My silence means I have adapted to the changes in y life and I don’t want to complain. My silence means I am on a self-healing process and I am trying to forget everything I ever wanted from you. My silence means I am just trying to move on gracefully with all my dignity — Aarti Khurana.
Be A Real Man
“A real man never hurts a woman. Be very careful when you make a woman cry. Because God counts her tears. The man came out of a man’s rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior. But from his side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected. And next to the heart to be loved.”
“You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breath and allow things to pass.” Warren Buffett
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” —Nelson Mandela
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” —Aristotle
“There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt
