I plan to share some of my favorite quotes now every Monday because I love quotes that help me think and motivate me. So I would like to help my readers and followers also! I have some questions for you as well so that we can interact! I look forward to learning more about you all too!
Wisdom Quote from the Bible
The verse in the Bible about wisdom that I especially like is:
The fear(respect) of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (NIV) Another good translation of this verse is “Fear of the the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.– Proverbs 9:10 (NLT)
I see a lot of people making a lot of noise these days, but I want the things that I share to mean something and carry wisdom for other people as well as the next generation.
A Wisdom Quote From a First Lady
Somehow we learn who we really are and then live with that decision.– Eleanor Roosevelt
This Eleanor Roosevelt quote really resonates for me given my background and the growth I’ve gone through in my life especially since I left home as a young adult and went on to get married and have kids. It challenges me to not let myself fall into decisions of the past when I was young and impressionable, but to continue to grow.
Wisdom From a German Psychologist
Integrity simply means a willingness not to violate one’s identity.– Erich Fromm
I love Erich Fromm’s statement because it challenges me to have integrity in all I do.
Wisdom From an Early 20th Century Novelist
If a man has talent and cannot use it, he has failed. If he has used only half of it, he has partly failed. If he has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he has gloriously succeeded and won a satisfaction and a triumph few men ever know.– Thomas Wolfe
I struggle day to day to stay motivated to share with you all in my writing. But God has given me a talent and a mission and Thomas Wolfe keeps me on point to share the things God has given me to share. I hope that as I use what God has given me that it is an encouragement to you
Wisdom From a Poet
It is the province of knowledge to speak, and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.– Oliver Wendell Holmes
It is so important, especially as I continue to grow this forum that what I share comes from a life of listening to others and understanding what is truly important. While I get to share on this site, I spend a LOT of time listening to others in hopes that I can grow and provide value. Interestingly, Jimi Hendrix is often attributed with saying a variation of this quote: “Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.”
Wisdom From a U.S. President
Courage is not having the strength to go on. It’s going on when you don’t have the strength– Theodore Roosevelt
I share some pretty sensitive thoughts and feelings in my articles. Sometimes I struggle with whether or not I should say some things and even whether or not I should share my feelings and personal experiences. I know some of you struggle with similar issues. I takes courage to put yourself out there. Share your story and motivate people to see you.
Wisdom From THE Motivational Speaker and Author
If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you
If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.– Zig Ziglar
I didn’t naturally go down this path in life; because I didn’t used to believe in myself. I had to grow a backbone and show some courage to become what God wanted and do what He called me to do.
