Tolkien "The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool." ~ As You Like It by William Shakespeare "When you've learned to laugh at the things that should be laughed at, and not to laugh at those that shouldn't, you've got wisdom and understanding." ~ Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery "I confess that I have been as blind as a mole, but it is better to learn wisdom late than never to learn it at all." ~ The Man with the Twisted Lip by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Angry people are not always wise. ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen "Ah, how little knowledge does a man acquire in his life. He gathereth it up like water, but like water it runneth through his fingers, and yet, if his hands be but wet as though with dew, behold a generation of fools call out, 'See, he is a wise man!'" ~ She by H. Rider Haggard As it has been well expressed in the paradox of Poe, wisdom should reckon on the unforeseen. ~ The Innocence of Father Brown (The Blue Cross) by G. K.
