Whatever is going on wrong in America today, you cannot pin it on Donald Trump. He's not been there. He has not one fingerprint. He hasn't done one thing regarding anything policy-wise that's happening in the country today, and I think this is why his candidacy is so shocking and frightening to both establishment and Republican Democrats.

Rush Limbaugh

We need to redefine "smart" when talking about things Obama does, 'cause in my world he doesn't do smart things. He doesn't do intelligent things or wise things. He's doing destructive things.

Rush Limbaugh

I was speaking within the confines of this specific event, the Brexit vote. The opponents are gonna blame everything that happens on the vote, and they're gonna have the media with them for the most part. It's gonna be a great thing to watch, lesson-wise.

Rush Limbaugh

But work a year and sleep an hour, and sleep a night and sing a day, And take a little wine and love, and when you feel religious—pray.

Ridgely Torrence

Part of living, part of becoming a wise man or a wise woman, is to get to that point where you can have a friend for whom you are genuinely happy when he or she has a success. That's tough. Very few people get to that point. With writers it's next to impossible. You can't really bless a writer who's as good as yourself.

Norman Mailer

Security isn't what the wise person looks for; it's opportunity. And once we begin looking for that, we find it on every side. You can measure opportunity with the same yardstick that measures the risk involved. They go together.

Earl Nightingale

Throughout all history, the great wise men and teachers, philosophers, and prophets have disagreed with one another on many different things. It is only on this one point that they are in complete and unanimous agreement. We become what we think about

Earl Nightingale

A wise man told me don't argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can't tell who is who.

Jay-Z

Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.

Plato

Justice in the individual is now defined analogously to justice in the state. The individual is wise and brave in virtue of his reason and spirit respectively: he is disciplined when spirit and appetite are in proper subordination to reason. He is just in virtue of the harmony which exists when all three elements of the mind perform their proper function and so achieve their proper fulfillment; he is unjust when no such harmony exists.

Plato

We ought to fly away from earth to heaven as quickly as we can; and to fly away is to become like God, as far as this is possible; and to become like him is to become holy, just, and wise.

Plato

To escape from evil we must be made as far as possible like God; and the resemblance consists in becoming just and holy and wise.

Plato

So the state founded on natural principles is wise as a whole in virtue of the knowledge inherent in its smallest constituent class, which exercises authority over the rest. And the smallest class is the one which naturally possesses that form of knowledge which alone of all others deserves the title of wisdom.

Plato

Poets utter great and wise things which they do not themselves understand.

Plato

A wise man speaks because he has something to say; a fool because he has to say something.

Plato

According to Diotima, Love is not a god at all, but is rather a spirit that mediates between people and the objects of their desire. Love is neither wise nor beautiful, but is rather the desire for wisdom and beauty.

Plato

Nothing is more unworthy of a wise man, or ought to trouble him more, than to have allowed more time for trifling, and useless things, than they deserve.

Plato

The god, O men, seems to me to be really wise; and by his oracle to mean this, that the wisdom of this world is foolishness and of none effect.

Plato

To fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise without really being wise, for it is to think that we know what we do not know.

Plato

Neither do the ignorant love wisdom or desire to become wise; for this is the grievous thing about ignorance, that those who are neither good nor beautiful think they are good enough, and do not desire that which they do not think they are lacking.

Plato

Just as bees make honey from thyme, the strongest and driest of herbs, so do the wise profit from the most difficult of experiences.

Plato

To fear death, gentlemen, is no other then to think oneself wise when one is not, to think one knows what one does not know.

Plato

Herein is the evil of ignorance, that he who is neither good nor wise is nevertheless satisfied with himself: he had no desire for that of which he feels no want.

Plato

Music has the capacity to touch the innermost reaches of the soul and music gives flight to the imagination.

Plato

The wise man will want to be ever with him who is better than himself.

Plato
