Mahatma Gandhi on Wisdom - Wisdom Quotes

(Remarks of Mahatma Gandhi,  In the course of his address to the concluding session of the Inter-Asian Relations Conference held at Delhi on 2.4.1947.  Mahatma Gandhi, stated  that the wisdom traveled to the West from the East) 
The first of these wise men (from East) was Zoroaster. He belonged to the East. He was followed by Buddha, who belonged to the East-India. Who followed Buddha? Jesus, who came from the East. Before Jesus was Moses who belonged to the Palestine though he was born in Egypt. After Jesus came Mohammad....
The West today is pining for wisdom. It is despairing of a multiplication of the atom bombs, because atom bombs mean utter destruction not merely of the West but of the whole world... 
Harijan, 20.4.1947
It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.
Mahatma Gandhi
Jealousy presupposes the possibility of rivalry
Truth is what the voice within tells you
A 'No' with deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' to avoid trouble

Silence of the sewn up lips is no silence. One may achieve the same result by chopping off one's tongue, but that too would not be silence. He is truly silent who, having the capacity to speak, utters no idle word.



 Psychologists tend to agree that wisdom involves an integration of knowledge, experience, and deep understanding that incorporates tolerance for the uncertainties of life as well as its ups and downs.

Wisdom will never enter the soul of a wrong-doer, nor dwell in a body enslaved to sin;
for the holy spirit of instruction flees deceitfulness, recoils from unintelligent thoughts, is thwarted by the onset of vice.
