Words of Wisdom

Through the ages many have put universal wisdom to work to better their lives. Fortunately too, people from all walks of life have expressed wisdom in fine words that resonate timelessly across the world. We don’t need to reinvent Wisdom, the principles can be found everywhere.

The School will shortly provide a Words of Wisdom weekly mailing that will send a fresh and thought-provoking quotation to interested subscribers.

Quote of the week

Voyage of discovery - Marcel Proust
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.De echte ontdekkingsreis bestaat niet in het zoeken naar nieuwe landschappen, maar in het hebben van nieuwe ogen.”
Marcel Proust
“No one saves us except ourselves. No one can and no one could. We must walk the path ourselves.”
“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you, as by the attitude you bring to life.; not so much by what happens to you, as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”
Kahlil Gibran
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
