ValuesoftheWise.com has had a quote database in place since 2004, and it is called the Wisdom Archive. Here is a sampling of some of the quotes about values and wisdom quotes you will find, for free, and ad-free. Often words like “broad”, “deep”, “amazing”, “intriguing” and “easy to search” come up when folks comment on the collection of quotations from famous and not-so-famous individuals.
The first thing to note is that there are over 33,000 quotes about values, ethics, and wisdom in the Wisdom Archive.
It is a very easy quote database to use: just plug in a keyword (or phrase) and hit the Search button.
However, you can also customize the search according to three other fields: the name of the author of the quote, the general ethnic background of the author (for example, what part of the world do they hail from?), the gender of the author (I guess sex is the best word, in fact), and the “ValueSet” that describes the quote.
A ValueSet is a classification system to make the quote database I call The Wisdom Archive function a bit better. For example, most quotes about values or wisdom quotes (and ethics quotations) tend to be able to be categorized for easier searching – like looking in the category of “Chinese Food” if you are hungry.
So, here are the ValueSets into which all 33,000 quotes fit:
- Knowledge, Wisdom & Education
Education leads to knowledge, yet wisdom is only found within.
