Quotations can pack so much wisdom in such few words. That is what first drew me to quotations and that is what keeps me wanting to present you with more and more collections of quotations. Here are some of my favorite wise sayings.

Emmett Fox

A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.

Rosalie Graham
A road twice travelled is never as long.

Chinese proverb
A single conversation across a table with a wise man is worth a month's study of books.
