I’ve been doing a lot of thinking today. Do you often wonder how your life would have turned out if you had been wiser in the past? It would certainly have saved me a lot of trouble. But there’s no point dwelling on the past. Instead we have to concentrate on the present to build the best future we possibly can for ourselves. And that includes making wise decisions.

Statue of Buddha

Wisdom is crucial to our progress.

The more years we say the wiser (hopefully!) we should become.

Nevertheless, it doesn’t stop us from the risk of abandoning this precious quality when having an off-day, or when the going gets tough.

Keep calm and stay wise.

Here are 10 quotes to aid you in your quest to remain wise on your personal development journey.
