March – Wisdom

March – Wisdom

“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.” Alden Nowlan

“The value of the average conversation could be enormously improved by the constant use of four simple words: ‘I do not know.’” Andre Maurois

“Wisdom is not gained by knowing what is right. Wisdom is gained by practicing what is right and noticing what happens when that practice succeeds and when it fails.” Barbara Brown Taylor

“Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry,
the philosophy which does not laugh,
and the greatness which does not bow before children.” Khalil Gibran

‘Nuff said!
