Wisely series (Chinese: 衛斯理 (Wai Si Li)), sometimes transliterated "Wesley", is a series of novels about the fictional character of the same name, created by author Ni Kuang.

There are currently 145 Wisely stories, with 136 authored by Ni Kuang. After Ni Kuang's retirement, a Wisely Memoir (衛斯理回憶錄) series was authored by Dr. Yeh, Leehwa, attempting to explain the internal inconsistencies of the previous stories written by Ni Kuang.

The Wai Si Li stories are written as a first person narrative, the conceit being that the Wisely series was created as a record of his adventures and encounters.

Famous quotes containing the word wisely:

    Then must you speak
    Of one that loved not wisely but too well;
    Of one not easily jealous, but being wrought,
    Perplexed in the extreme; of one whose hand,
    Like the base Judean threw a pearl away
    Richer than all his tribe.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The old parties are husks, with no real soul within either, divided on artificial lines, boss-ridden and privilege-controlled, each a jumble of incongruous elements, and neither daring to speak out wisely and fearlessly on what should be said on the vital issues of the day.
    Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)

    He who has never failed somewhere, that man can not be great. Failure is the true test of greatness. And if it be said, that continual success is a proof that a man wisely knows his powers,—it is only to be added, that, in that case, he knows them to be small.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
