Wise Sayings About Life

Updated on January 18, 2013

If you search the Internet you may confidently expect to find thousands of pages about wise sayings about life quoted by the prominent philosophers and leaders of the past. And these sayings of wisdom helps us dive into more deep finding the true meaning of life.As I always believe that there is no winning or losing in life-life is just life-and one's duty is to live his life the way he is comfortable with.One should not seek to find the meaning and purpose of life based on what others said.But you may try to read, understand and judge the value of the sayings what our ancestors left us.

One of the interesting quotes that I came across while searching the web for the phrase"wise quotes about life" is the following :

"Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change"

This famous saying was quoted by legendary Chinese philosopher Conficius, approximately 2500 years back.Ironically, when I read this quote it took me while to fully grasp the meaning of this quote.It is easily understandable why a stupid does not change , if he changes his intellectual state, he will be no more a stupid.And obviously the wisest are wise enough not to change his intellectual status.and the rest of the people in the between the wisest and stupidest keep changing their states and helps to keep our society a dynamic place.

The three wise saying about life that sound really powerful and has its very deep inherent meaning, if you think of each of these quotes for a minute and try to realize the meaning,are:

  1. Guns don’t kill people — people do
  2. The best things in life are not things
  3. You Only Live Once, So Make The Most Of It

wise quotes about life
wise quotes about life

Some useful thoughts about life that I put here in my own words are:

  • Time is nothing but event collector.
  • No one has the power of changing the law of nature but one can change or influence the appearance of the nature.
  • Human body can be created, mind can be created but YOU cannot be created ever.
  • Finite has no power to understand the infinite, but the opposite of it is not the same.
  • Life means a sincere attempt to minimize our errors.
  • spirituality is globalization whereas religion is localization.Am I right or wrong?
  • Sacrifice is a symbolic black hole.If you ask me what is the end result of sacrifice or what this symbolic black hole draws into it?I would say it attracts people's love and respect towards it.And how you achieve that its up to you.
  • If there were no solutions , problems would not manifested in front of us.
  • There is difference between knowing the truth and seeing the truth. This difference is the gap between a normal person and a great person.
  • What lies after death is not important. The most important is how you are going to be remembered and as per take your action.
  • Life is an expression and death is a solution.Do you find any relationship between life and death?
  • Finding the positiveness in a negative situation is an art which works like a elixir in anyone's life.
  • Before making any comments or decision on critical subjects always try to stretch your thoughts up to your horizon lest you don’t have to be ashamed of your immature thinking power.
  • Democracy is a word and it has the potential to become a variable if we keep your mentioned meaning as a constant.Variable-constant(governmental system)=expression of opinion+..+.....
  • If there is true democracy and no violation of human rights all over the world.There cannot be any terrorism. Religious tolerance is also an important factor.
  • I think asking the right question is like just cross the first hurdle and success comes through persistent action on a well devised plan.

  • Not knowing is not a very good excuse neither an offence. Keep knowing.
  • Sometimes I admire arrogance if it is expressed as a true self confidence.
  • Never ever give someone else the power to tell you what you are and aren’t capable of.
  • Are you afraid of your death.If your answer is yes,I would say yor are not pure.A puresoul is never afraid of death.
  • Anyone who fails to think universally is prone to show some kind of racism or inclination to any particular ideas/race.I am glad that I am not one of them.
  • Homogeneous society means people are having same type of cultural, belief, rituals, social system, educational level etc. in a society where in fact everyone share almost the same type of social value.
  • You know why you need a body because its only necessary when you enter the dimension of time and space. This is the only way to trap you into the four dimensional world.
  • How does a person feel when he cannot make people understood what exactly he want to mean.I always keep in mind that it can happen to me anytime.
  • Imagine you live in past and make the decision for the present.

  • The imbalance of our mind need to come to an equilibrium state-it is the imbalance of conscious and unconscious mind.The concept of GOD fit into this situation.
  • Humanity is our convergence of interests.
  • Take each day as a project and at the end of the day try to figure out how successful your project was.
  • If you are blind about any subject try to see through that subject with you heart.
  • If you need to take any step to fulfill your desire take it now .Never think about the failure of your desire. At the end you will see there is no failure , its all about what percentage of the your desire was full filled.
  • Ask questions to satisfy your mind. A sound and satisfied mind is the breeding ground of great works.
  • We need try things in life what we are the most comfortable with.
  • Admire the genius of the great mind. It will lead you to see the truth of life.
  • I think life is a kind of test for everyone where success depends on one's ability to handle or overcome the untoward situations.Yes, you can say that some might be little privileged over others, but at the end its one's ability to control his desires and ambitions as per situation make him successful or whatever you may call it.No one is favored over others;for the time being you may feel that the communists are enjoying less freedom due their leaders,maybe in some other way they are privileged which we totally overlooked. Here I wanna say one thing that every political system has the potential to provide the best possible rights to its citizens.Who told communist leaders that there won't be any expression of public opinion?Just a few power hungry communist leaders made it for themselves.Problem occurs when communism turns into totalitarianism.
  •  consciousness is something divine.It is not possible to define with our knowledge of physical life that where the consciousness come from, but everybody knows how much it is capable of changing one's life.Maybe the evolution theory is right or let it be wrong,in fact it has does not affect the way we behave as a human.I still wonder why the remaining monkey's are not evolving or not developing their consciousness.Who signaled them to stop evolution process?

      421I hate to do this, but on the topic of difficulty in hreicos I really have to disagree with Scott. I think the trash difficulty is, for the most part, okay. A few of the bosses need to be tuned down just slightly to make them more accessible.If you're looking for difficulty in hreicos, that's why they have the achievement system. That's where the real difficulty needs to be. In addition, let's look at the player base coming into Cataclysm from Wrath. I don't know about you, but I have a lot of friends who play wow in order to relieve stress. They come along on hreicos and normal raids, they may not do the best but they are decent players trying to relieve the stress of real life. They're my friends. Now, with the difficulty being as it is, a lot of them are either scaling back or stopping their WoW subscription entirely. Some may come back, but not all of them. Blizzard has literally scared off my friends. That's my problem with the difficulty.

      @James A Watkins-Thank you so much for your excellent interpretation and I agree with your views.What I wanted to say by "What lies after death is not important" is that many of us act or do things either remember that there is no life after death, while some act upon fearing the server afterlife punishment.My thought is that one should try to live a life honestly,irrespective of what kind of religious faith one has.As far as communism is concerned,you are right about what you said with some interesting facts and I have no point to disagree with that.I think that any political system can function well for the welfare of its citizens if it has a true leader.I am more incline to blame the the person who runs the system, rather than blaming the system itself.Thanks once again and hope to continue reading your hubs :)

      Thank you for this thought-provoking Hub. 99 percent of what you wrote I agree with. I have an open mind, so to speak. I gave this a voted up and interesting!

      Just two things I want to comment on further.

      You said: "What lies after death is not important"

      Gosh. As an immortal soul I do not see how this can be true.

      And you wrote: "you may feel that the communists are enjoying less freedom due their leaders,maybe in some other way they are privileged which we totally overlooked. Here I wanna say one thing that every political system has the potential to provide the best possible rights to its citizens. Who told communist leaders that there won't be any expression of public opinion?"

      This is nonsense. There is a reason why Communists were the first rulers to ever build walls—not to keep out invaders but to keep their own people from escaping! Free Speech must be eliminated under communism because the only way that system works is if the government is in total control of everything.

      In Communist China during the 1960s, for instance, students were told that China had the highest standard of living in the world and America had the lowest. The truth was nearly the opposite. But the students believed it. That is why speech, media, and communications must be controlled because people will only live under communism if they are brainwashed with outright lies. If they learn the truth, they will revolt against such slavery and barbarism such as that which murdered one hundred million real human beings in the 20th century.

      Thank you. :-)

      Your proposition is right.We always think what will happen to others who depend on us.But one way or another life goes on.Time and necessity help dependents to learn how to become independent.Thank you so much for your feedback :)

      this caught me •Are you afraid of your death.If your answer is yes,I would say yor are not pure.A puresoul is never afraid of death.

      I fear death not for my sake but because of those whose lives depending on me.... if my soul is pure, would it mean I will not think this way because God has provision for those who will be left behind... worrying about my dogs LOL.... I will still need to comment on some, will be back if time permits
