Wisdom Quotes by Bea Tifton

Last time I posted, I wrote about the crones; the women who were the wisewomen, the healers,  leaders; the soothsayers. I started thinking about wisdom, so here are some inspirational words of wisdom. Take from them what you will.

“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls, the most massive characters are seared with scars.” Kahlil Gibran

“Decide who you must be, then do what you must do.“  Epictetus

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” Buddah

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”  Thich Nhat Hanh

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” Lucille Ball

“First principle: never to let one’s self be beaten down by person or by events.”  Marie Curie

“Once I learned to be like me more than others did, then I didn’t have to worry about being the funniest or the most popular or the prettiest. I was the best me and I only ever tried to be that. “
Issa Rae

“If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, then you are an excellent leader.”  Dolly Parton

“Your job is not to judge. Your job is not to figure out if someone deserves something. Your job is to lift the fallen, to restore the broken, and to heal the hurting.”  The Crone’s Grove

  1. I think with maturity we gain wisdom. I wish it came earlier in life, so we wouldn't have to fret as much.

  2. Thank you for this post. It is what we need right now.
