To grow wiser means to learn to know better and better the faults to which this instrument with which we feel and judge can be subject
No matter how long he lives, no man ever becomes as wise as the average woman of forty-eight
It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see
I don't think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday
The wise does at once what the fool does at last
It is human nature to think wisely and act in an absurd fashion
The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own
A wise man is superior to any insults which can be put upon him, and the best reply to unseemly behavior is patience and moderation
So wise so young, they say, do never live long
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool
