A truly wise person asks more questions than gives answers.
A wise person is thought to be wiser when they simply reply, “Interesting isn’t?”
A knowing smile, a nod of the head, and saying “Ah yes,” can make you seem wise even when you don’t understand what’s going on.
God gave us two ears and only one mouth. Think about it.
Knowledge is know a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is know not to put it in a fruit salad.
A wise person speaks because they have something to say; a fool speaks because they have to say something.
Everyone is a fool for five minutes a day; wisdom consists of not exceeding the limit.
Why are a “wise man” and a “wise guy” opposites?
Why do tug boats push their barges?
Why are “overlook” and “oversight” opposites?
To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.
It’s not so much what you say as it is how you make people feel.
One of the hardest decisions you’ll ever make is deciding whether to walk away or try harder.
