“Quote Unquote”

September 5, 2014 § Leave a comment

“Knowledge is proud that he has learn’d so much; Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.”  —  William Cowper

“Wisdom does not show itself so much in precept as in life — in a firmness of mind and mastery of appetite. It teaches us to do, as well as to talk; and to make our actions and words all of a color.”  —  Seneca

“The question is, whether, like the Divine Child in the Temple, we are turning knowledge into wisdom, and whether, understanding more of the mysteries of life, we are feeling more of its sacred law; and whether, having left behind the priests and the scribes and the doctors and the fathers, we are about our Father’s business, and becoming wise to God.”  —  Frederick William Robertson
