Words of Wisdom;

Wisdom is knowing things that help a person to live sensibly and make good decisions. Wisdom is defined differently by many cultures. Some say that wisdom is something a person learns as they grow older.
If someone has wisdom we say he is wise.

The ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting; insight.
Common sense; good judgment:
The sum of learning through the ages; knowledge:
A wise outlook, plan, or course of action.

"What experience and history teach is this -- that people and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it.": Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel - (1770-1831) German philosopher


  1. Hallo liebe Titania

    Es gibt wohl zu wenig weise Menschen, die in die Politik gehen. Du hast so recht, was Du bei mir im Kommentar geschrieben hast, ich bin auch enttäuscht, dass es noch so viel Kriege gibt, und meistens stecken ganz andere Motivationen einen Krieg anzuzetteln dahinter, als die erklärten.

    Liebe Grüsse nach Australien, langsam, langsam kommt bei uns der Frühling, das bedeutet bei Euch wird es bald Herbst, aber richtig kalt wird es ja nicht in Australien, oder -;)

  2. Thank you Elfe; I always appreciate your wisdom.
    No it does not really get cold brrrr. Evenings and nights in winter can get cool and one needs a jumper and socks, that is in my area which is subtropical. We do not have heating or air con, but I have a heated waterbed in winter!

  3. So TRUE! Sadly! Great quotes. We just shakes our heads and wonder why??????? Thanks for your comments on my blog Titania!
