This collection of witty wisdom quotes (aprox.
620 quotes) is the result of working through 6 major quotes books, books
of my personal library, many comprehensive internet collections, by surfing
private homepages, or using some of my own thoughts and quotes. Alltogether
a first harvest of looking through some 60,000 Western and Eastern quotes.
My only criteria were that the quote had to make me smile, wow or thoughtful.
I avoided those with too much superficial holiness and moral doctrine :-)
Hope you enjoy what I've found. For an easier navigation I sorted the quotes
by keywords, sub-categories ('heavy weights',.'light
quotes & thoughts') and even a kind of personal rating.
The quotes pages will be extended every couple
of months. For returning visitors we marked newly added quotes with (n).and
the date behind. So have a look from time to time.

|Personal Quotes & Thoughts
the process of working through thousands of quotes and thereby creeping
into the minds of thousands of people, I found it necessary to write down
some self-grown quotes and thoughts to re-establish my own identity. Even
though ultimate wisdom is universal by definition and independent from
specific cultures, religions or personalities, I enjoyed using my own words,
pictures and biographical background to start this little collection, which
hopefully will grow over the years. I'm obviously not Buddha or Einstein
and I don't want to pretend to be. So I decided just to put down what came
straight from my own mind, heart and experience, having worked in the spiritual
field for more than 3 decades. Wisdom is something which continuously grows
and changes and with some luck becomes more essential with the aging process...
like clouds drifting away to reveal the open sky (which was always there).
So I look forward to seeing this kind of wisdom-diary grow like a patchwork,
checking myself using this mirror. It could easily happen that I either
burst into laughter or smile through my tears when I re-read some of my
ultimate wisdoms from the beginning of the 21st century :-) All people
of wisdom I've met in my life had at least three things in common: a good
sense of humor, a little craziness and some child-like purity. That's already
three good reasons to follow the path the wisdom :-)

- The subdivision in 'heavy' and 'light' shouldn't
be taken too seriously. The criteria are completely subjective. At the
end they are either all 'heavy weights', all 'light weights' or sometimes
this and sometimes that. It completely depends on the circumstances and
where one stands. (That's wisdom already)
