Daily Words of Wisdom

Presented by Bo Bennett, PhD

Words of wisdom are pieces of advice passed on over the years, which influenced countless people around the world by shaping and defining their lives. Some of these words come from authors, poets, politicians, historical figures, and religious writings, whereas some seem to be as old as time itself and their origins remain unknown. I have read and contemplated over 10,000 of these sayings, proverbs, aphorisms, and quotes over the years and have compiled a list of just over 300 that I believe bring people closer to success. Don’t just read each one, contemplate its meaning and consider these words of wisdom:

One line of wisdom can change your life more than volumes of books.

Almost every wise saying has an opposite. For example, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” and its opposite “the nail that sticks up gets nailed down.” Both sayings sound good and are persuasive in communication; that is why some of these sayings have survived since the beginning of recorded history. It is up to you to decide if the words you read or hear make sense to you. Never accept an idea just because it sounds good.

The wisdom is not in the words; it is in the interpretation and the meaning behind the words. With so few words used to create such powerful statements and ideas, it is understandable why there are so many interpretations of each. As a general rule, the fewer the words, the more interpretations there are. In some cases, quotes, sayings, proverbs, and other words of wisdom have a completely different meaning when taken out of context. It is the beliefs you adopt and the actions you take as a result of the words that are most important.
