    That is too simple.

    "life isn't a destination or goal. It's the ride."

    In other words, you can plan for the future, but you need to live for today. Live by that, and the rest will work itself out.

    "The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here". As in, words fade away; actions are forever.

    That's quite ironic, coming from the Gettysburg Address! But I like it.

    Also... this is not a quote about wisdom... but I really like this speech: Al Pacino's Inch By Inch speech from Any Given Sunday.

    Read a chapter of Proverbs every day. Whether you are Christian or not that book teaches great wisdom:thumb:
