Wise men are not always silent, but they know when to be.


Sometimes all you need is someone to listen. You don’t need them to agree with everything you say. You just need a shoulder to cry on.

A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise knows himself to be a fool.

William Shakespeare

A fool thinks he has fooled you, but a wise man knows that he is a fool for making fool of others. A wise man believes in karma.

A wise man gets more from his enemies, than a fool from his friends.

Baltasar Gracian

A wise man learns from experience, hardships and he has to be patient in order to get where he wants to be. He does not take revenge through force but by working hard. He knows the greatest revenge is to live a happy and successful life.

A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion.

Grantland Rice

The fool worries about his reputation and what others think of him, while the wise man decides based on what he thinks is best for him, and the people close to him.

Wise kings generally have wise counselors, and he must be a wise man himself for distinguishing one.


If you are wise, you know who to associate with, and whom to listen to. You know where to seek advice when you need it. A wise can recognize who is with him, and who are those against him.

A wise man associating with the vicious becomes an idiot; a dog traveling with good men becomes a rational being.

Arab Proverb

Who you associate yourselves with, you become. Choose your friends wisely. Birds of the same feathers flock together. Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.

Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.


A wise man will say something because he has something to say of importance. He doesn’t just talk for the sake of talking. A wise man talks something of value. He doesn’t need to raise a voice because he knows he will be heard. A fool on the other hand will cut-off someone from talking because he has to say something, even if it’s irrelevant to the subject matter.
