Sabbath Keeping

 ~ birds of the air ~
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater; So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands." 

"Every man is a fool for at least five minutes every day;
wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit."
~ Elbert Hubbard ~
"Action expresses priorities." ~ unknown ~

"Wise men speak because they have something to say; 
Fools because they have to say something." 
~ Plato ~
"Patience is the companion of wisdom." 

"Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd have preferred to talk." ~Doug Larson

"Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life." ~ Sandra Carey

"Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, "Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'" ~ Charles M. Schultz ~

"I know what I have given you. 
I do not know what you have received." 

"The highest form of wisdom is kindness." ~ The Talmud ~

"The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common."

"He who devotes sixteen hours a day to hard study may become at sixty as wise as he thought himself at twenty."  ~ Mary Wilson Little ~

"When I can look Life in the eyes,
Grown calm and very coldly wise,
Life will have given me the Truth,
And taken in exchange - my youth."
~ Sara Teasdale ~

"A wise man can see more from the bottom of a well than a fool can from a mountain top."
~ Proverb ~

"Some folks are wise and some are otherwise."  ~ Tobias Smollett ~

"The child, offered the mother's breast,
Will not in the beginning grab it;
But soon it clings to it with zest.
And thus at wisdom's copious breasts
You'll drink each day with greater zest."
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ~

"The well bred contradict other people. The wise contradict themselves."  
~ Oscar Wilde ~
"Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers."  

 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, 
that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; 
and it shall be given him."
