Wisdom and Knowledge

Updated on October 9, 2009

Attempting a record for the shortest ever viable hub ! ...with these great quotes:

"The first human being who hurled an insult instead of a stone was the founder of civilization"- Sigmund Freud 

"Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens" - Jimi Hendrix

"Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential" - Winston Churchill

"Just do what you feel and dont you fool yourself" - Ziggy Marley

"The quieter you become, the more you can hear". - Ram Dass

"Remember there is no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end" - Scott Adams

"They say marraiges are made in Heaven,well so are thunder and lightning" - Clint Eastwood

"The most important thing in communication is to hear what is not being said" - Peter F. Drucker

      Very nice Tom, wisdom seems to command more respect than knowledge as your example illustrates.

      Love the Hendrix quote on wisdom/knowledge. One of my favorites is knowledge is knowing a tomato is a vegetable, wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad. Thanks for the hub.

      thanks James,

      I'd like to thank Nicomp and The Old Firm (my ridiculous hub mentors) for encouraging me, to write silly hubs!

      I'd also like to thank you James for expanding the comments section which makes the hub look even smaller and the Hendrix quote even better!

      I enjoyed these quotes very much, especially the Hendrix line. Thank you for publishing this little Hub that could.

      Quotes from Hendrix and Churchill are enough to justify any hub, regardless of the length!

      LOL The Old Firm, I tried to publish with only one quote but unsuccessful. So I progressively added one quote at a time until the publish button worked. What else could I do? I suppose I could have tried a really short quote as the last and snipped off more. I could try editing know that I have published successfully? Thanks for your comment and especially for keeping it short!

      Nah, nowhere near short enough!

      Cheers, TOF
