33 Quotes Packed With Pure Wisdom

33 Quotes Packed With Pure Wisdom

Wisdom is an oft-valued, yet rarely seen trait across the world. Cultures, families, and even businesses revere it, but how many of your own friends would you call wise? I know I wouldn’t ascribe this trait to hundreds of my friends, but I deeply value the friends I do attach it to.

This is not to make people feel guilty for being unwise; it’s simply true that wisdom remains an elusive characteristic. As the adage goes, wisdom often comes with experience, and experience often comes with age.

Many young people are told by older people that they can’t attain certain things in life yet simply because of their age. Generational differences can cause tension at times, but the truth is that wisdom can be attained at any age — you just need to be looking for it. At times, this requires more effort than we might like to admit.

It’s difficult to find wisdom nuggets in the modern-day media landscape. Part of this is because so much media is structured in the direction of entertainment rather than edification. The desire for fun, frivolity, and limitless indulging has grossly overtaken that of earnest self improvement in many cases.

These days, you truly have to fight to uncover wisdom; it won’t be waiting for you at every turn. There is some validity to the idea that wisdom takes time to obtain, grow, and share. However, as you pack your life full of experiences, relationships, choices, and goals, wisdom will slowly come knocking at your door. It’s simply your job to open the door when she does knock.

Despite some considering wisdom to be an impractical, “archaic” trait, wisdom remains as powerful as ever. If there were a way to hack the process of becoming wiser, would you want to utilize such a process? Such is the impetus for this post, a hand-picked collection of 33 quotes full of pure wisdom.

Wisdom regularly takes on different faces. It can be the teacher providing some stern insight during a moment of discipline, the diehard friend sharing encouragement during a time of sadness, or even the grandfather or grandmother offering sagacious observations about the choices in daily life. All of these are perfect analogs of some of the quotes you’ll see below.

Looking for that concise bit of truth? Have a friend who needs some power-packed encouragement? Are you simply a knowledge junkie who’s always on the hunt for pure wisdom? Wherever you find yourself this week, dive right into this quote collection and enjoy the wisdom within.

                                                                    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                                                                    We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                                                                    On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                                                                    1. Smart Door Locks

                                                                    A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                                                                    Advertising

                                                                    Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                                                                    3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                                                                    If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                                                                    Advertising

You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                                                                    5. Nest Thermostat

                                                                    This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                                                                    Advertising

This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                                                                    7. Google Chromecast Ultra
