Words of Wisdom

  Here are some delightful quotations and quotes that are words of wisdom. This selection of quotes concentrates on what several writers had to say about wisdom itself !!!

It is only too likely that neither of us has any knowledge to boast of; but he thinks that he knows something which he does not know, whereas I am quite conscious of my ignorance.

Socrates

 



It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning.
Claude Bernard
