Famous quotes containing the word wise:

    Union of the weakest develops strength
    Not wisdom. Can all men, together, avenge
    One of the leaves that have fallen in autumn?
    But the wise man avenges by building his city in snow.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    So wise so young, they say, do never live long.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Life is so short that it is not wise to take roundabout ways, nor can we spend much time in waiting.... We have not got half-way to dawn yet.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
