About

Diogenes-statue-Sinop-cropThe name comes from ‘wisdom literature’. I had a lot of tabs open and the one for Wisdom Literature got truncated to Wisdom Lite – I liked it.

That was is 2008, and for years I have wondered what to do with it.

Quotations often claim wisdom, or have wisdom attributed to them. And they are short. So a site dedicated to my favourite quotations.

Here are the quotations that have made me think, or laugh; and  those that having once heard I cannot seem to forget, whether I agree with them or not.

The images on this page are of the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes. He famously carried a lantern, a light, even in the daylight, claiming he was searching for an honest person, and presumably a wise one.
