Life is the only real counselor; wisdom unfiltered through personal experience does not become a part of the moral tissue.
The air of ideas is the only air worth breathing.
Some things are best mended by a break.
There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Beware of monotony; it's the mother of all the deadly sins.
If only we'd stop trying to be happy we could have a pretty good time.
Quotes by Edith Wharton
- What personal experiences have taught you much about life?
- Where do you find rich ideas?
- How do you avoid monotony?
