We hope to collect the best wise quotes we can find - on tv, books, and the internet. Some of these quotations are taken from classical sources, such as The Bible, Shakespeare, and from sacred Buddhist, Islamic, and other texts. Others are from more prosaic sources - from movies, TV interviews, and contemporary books and magazines. Others are even overheard on the street... you never know where wisdom will crop up from!
We are collecting the best and wisest sayings we can find from the world's best thinkers. For that reason, we ask you to add your favorite wise sayings, by leaving a comment by any quote. You might disagree with a quote, or you might stop by to tell us how much it meant to you. If so - leave your thoughts in the upper right hand corner of any box. This is just a small start of the world's wisdom - return back often to see more of what people have had to say.
Search these proverbs and sayings by themes, like love, work, money, life, death, family, and other big themes of life. Or shuffle this page like an oracle - you'll be suprised how useful the information is that comes up. Or, why not browse one of the recommended books (above), or add us to your tweet stream. Wisdom is important to us all, whatever our age, nationality or cultural background - have a little more wisdom in your day.
