Always measure one’s richness by the things one chooses not to buy.
Your mind is pregnant with the potential for great intellectual and sophisticated thoughts on the most profound matters. Leave the mediocrity aside and allow it to give birth.
I like to equate the mediocrity of everyday matters with the force of gravity. It pulls you downwards. For wisdom to be obtained, the escape velocity must be reached and maintained.
I feel that those who have richness through health & wealth can travel to any part of the planet. But only those with richness through high-quality thoughts and great intellect can travel to any part of the universe.
If it can give me wisdom, I will go for that road and figure a way of dealing with the obstacles. I will bank on my intelligence and ability, both gained through eons of evolution, to help me out.
Most who preach carry the illusion of knowledge. Those who are wise and actually have some amount of real knowledge keep learning and sharing. They don’t preach.
The funny thing about wisdom is that it comes when most of the important decisions in life have already been made.
In the great schools of the intellectual world, there is no course on wisdom.
The wise do not take desperate measures.
Nature has made wisdom so elusive as it can lead to things like the discovery of life’s purposelessness and make some disappointed people plunge into depression, thereby risking their survival.
When your concepts about life are clear, you are on the right road to pursue truth.
I now realize that depth of thought is indeed a prized possession.
If happier beings had a better chance of survival and the sad ones perished, surely by now the emotion of sorrow would be extinct.
Success in our society is currently measured through material wealth and not intellectual wealth.
We can afford to waste most things, but not time.
Nothing is older than time. There is nothing newer than the present moment.
The flow of time stops for no one. Once a moment passes, you cannot go back and change it. Not with science, not with divine interventions.
We experience time by perceiving, through our senses, things that change. In a completely stationary world, the concept of time will not have any meaning.
Photons that travel at the speed of light must have no concept of time.
The most profound property of time is that nothing lasts forever. At the same time, time itself is probably eternal. Now, isn’t that a paradox to ponder over?
