Wisely

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:

    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)

    If we bring not the good courage of minds covetous of truth, and truth only, prepared to hear all things, and decide upon all things, according to evidence, we should do more wisely to sit down contented in ignorance, than to bestir ourselves only to reap disappointment.
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)

    Humanity cries out against this vast enormity:Mnot one man knows a prudent remedy. Blame not, then, the North; and wisely judge the South.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
