Wisdom From The Wise



I have always enjoyed reading the quotes of famous people. Not just because they are a lot of fun to read, but because there is so much truth in them. I also feel they are the shortcuts to learning, and they can be great motivators. I can remember a time when I had them stuck up all around the house and office. The post it notes work great.

Look what others have said about the quotes:

Winston Churchill said, “Every man who didn’t go to college can largely make up for that lack by reading the wise sayings of the great men of the past.”

Thomas Jefferson said, "Mankind would lose half its wisdom built up over the centuries if it lost its great sayings. They contain the best parts of the best books."

WM. James said, “To neglect the wise saying of great thinkers is to deny ourselves of our truest education.”

Samuel Johnson said, “He is the most useful teacher who condenses the most knowledge into short sentences.”

Many of the famous people of the world have left us with their thoughts, experience, and wisdom, all condensed down into short sentences. Call them proverbs, quotes, wise saying, or whatever you like, but do understand, they all come from people worth listening to.

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Reading a simple wise saying changed my life."

It's unbelievable how reading one little wise saying or proverb has changed so many people's lives.

"Learning from the wise sayings of great men is like riding to success on the shoulders of giants." --Elbert Hubbard

Reading wise sayings is like consulting with the worlds' highest priced experts.  Don’t be afraid of using the quotes as your shortcuts to success. The quotes are fun to read, and they really are the shortcuts to success. Study them often.

Jot This Down

Jotting (Writing) it Down helps you to remember and just a few words is all it takes to jog your memory and kick start your thinking.

Here are a few things worth remembering that you could jot down:

Straighter Is Greater

Work-Wait-Win

Loyalty Is Royalty

Commit Or Quit

Little Things Matter
Enemies Are Made, Not Born 

Prayer Works Period 

Now This:


A little boy was having difficulty lifting a heavy stone. His father came along and as he noticed the boy struggling, he asked, "Are you using all your strength?" "Yes, I am," the little boy said. As he continued to watch, the father asks again, "Are you sure you using all your strength?" "Yes, I am," the little boy said. "No, you are not," the father answered. "I am right here just waiting, and you haven't asked me to help you."

Asking is the key to getting. Some never ask yet they wonder why they didn't get. If you want something you should ask for it. Never Be Afraid To Ask

Be Like A Bee


One day I was sitting on the deck out back when I spotted a bumble bee. The thought hit me that maybe bees might be a good topic for my blog.  I ran inside to get the camera but when I returned the bee was gone.

I never did get around to writing the article about bees in the garden. But seeing this huge bumble bee did remind me about the saying, bumble bees can't fly, they just do it anyway.

Really, in theory bumblebees should not be able to fly. According to the great minds of science, the bumblebee cannot fly. Why? For one, its wings just aren't big enough. The body is too big. Aerodynamics says it is impossible. The biggest computers in the world all come to the same conclusion, it can't fly.

Another fact about the bumble bee is, and maybe the smart people didn't think about this one, the bumble bee doesn't have any ears.

Really, the bumble bee doesn't have any ears.

Nope, the bumble bee doesn't have ears, so maybe this explains why it ignores the smart minds, the computers, and the skeptics, and it just goes ahead and flies anyway.

This is a good reminder that maybe there are times in our lives when we need to be more like the bee, and just do things anyway.

How many times have we listened to others and never even tried something simply because they told us we couldn't?

So the next time you face a challenge, remember the bumble bee.

The next time you feel like you can't, remember the bumble bee.

The next time you need to get things done, remember the bumble bee. 

The next time you need to get up off the couch, remember the bumble bee.

The next time somebody tells you that you can't,  be like the bumble bee and just do it anyway.

Just Do It.
