Quotable Sunday

Happy Quotable Sunday! My quotes today are on wisdom. I'll make this post short and sweet, as I'm visiting family in NC for the weekend and have a busy day ahead before heading home to VA. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! I'll be back in action tomorrow :D

Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day; wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.
Elbert Hubbard

A man begins cutting his wisdom teeth the first time he bites off more than he can chew.
Herb Caen

In seeking wisdom thou art wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it - thou art a fool.
Lord Chesterfield

It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.
Henry David Thoreau

Learning sleeps and snores in libraries, but wisdom is everywhere, wide awake, on tiptoe.
Josh Billings

Memory is the mother of all wisdom.
Aeschylus
