“There is a tendency to mistake data for wisdom, just as there has always been a tendency to confuse logic with values, intelligence with insight. Unobstructed access to facts can produce unlimited good only if it is matched by the desire and ability to find out what they mean and where they lead.” Norman Cousins
The Quote Pages
artes serviunt vitae; sapientia imperat
The arts are the servants of life; wisdom is it’s master.
Only quotes that can be well sourced have been selected for this library. Since there are limits to the amount of time that I can spend on this project, sometimes the quote sourcing will indicate that disputes exist as to authorship. In those cases the dispute will be detailed. As far as I can tell, this is the most completely sourced collection of quotes on the web. Happy reading.
