Today we bring you the best WISDOM QUOTES.

Wisdom resides behind all of life’s challenges. As so in wisdom, reside the fruits of life. But do not confuse naked knowledge with what we are talking about. Wisdom is knowledge armed with undeniable principles that aid in a more rewarding human journey.  

Wisdom is your responsibility. Get old enough, and it may come to you by way of regrets. Or start today and try to take out something from your every life experience. Be curious.

Your quest for wisdom is your making of yourself. It is your writing of your destiny. It is your living with intent and the conquering of mediocrity. Plus it comes easily to those who ask for it. Pay attention to where you have been and what it will take to get you where you want to go. Lend a helping hand to those who need it. And be the best you possible. Be wise.
