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.
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Cleverness is not wisdom.
He dares to be a fool, and that is the first step in the direction of wisdom.
In seeking wisdom thou art wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it – thou art a fool.
