140 wise phrases to reflect on life

Do you need wise phrases about life to think? Today, listening to the song by James Blunt called "Wisemen" (wise men), I began to reflect on how wise people are. 

Who has never met one of those people who seem to be a walking encyclopedia? Those people who always have the right answer, who stay away from greed and materialism, envy, rivalry, hate, pride, anger, and about any interesting aspect of life.

What characterizes wise people?

The wise man is happy, he is kind, he is sincere when he expresses himself and is balanced. Treat others equally, regardless of their social status, race or gender. The wise shut up when he should shut up and speak to say what he has to say and nothing more. He is modest, he is humble, he always remains intact and his presence is an endless source of information.

The wise man has great knowledge about himself, and his goal is to conquer himself and not conquer others. The wise are contemplated with respect because they respect others. His words are poetry and he always gives life phrases to remember.

Wise phrases of life to reflect

In today's article I present a collection of wise phrases: phrases of those that make you reflect and that make you smarter. I must mention to you, before I begin, other Psychology and Mind articles that are very interesting compilations of famous phrases and quotes. 

I hope you like this compilation of quotes on different topics, such as happiness, personal relationships, ambition, hate or pride; for these express human wisdom and have been said or written by famous novelists, philosophers, artists, thinkers, poets or have a popular or unknown origin. These phrases have been passed from generation to generation and, to this day, they are still alive.

1. In life, sometimes you win, sometimes you learn (John Maxwell)
This phrase that can be said by any parent, grandfather or friend, and  makes us see the losses from a positive perspective. We must learn from these unpleasant moments, in order to continue growing as individuals. In other words, it doesn't matter how you fall, but how you get up.

2. Do not measure your wealth for the money you have, measure it for those things you have that you would not exchange for money ( Paulo Coelho )
In a materialistic society it is easy to assess oneself based on the possessions we have, and these types of valuations are very negative for self-esteem . Also, what will really make you happy in everyday life, are those little things and those pleasant moments.

3. Asking forgiveness is intelligent, forgiving is noble and forgiving is wise (Anonymous)
The forgiveness is one of the best emotional therapies. If you ask for forgiveness and if you forgive, show your greatness as an individual. But you are bigger, and you better be emotionally, if you also forgive yourself. Something that seems easy in theory, but that becomes complicated in practice. If you identify yourself with this phrase because it is hard for you to forgive yourself, Mindfulness can be very useful. There is also a Hawaiian philosophy called Ho'oponopono that bases its effectiveness on spiritual forgiveness.

4. An intelligent man would never be irritated if he always had a mirror in front of him and saw himself when he argues (Anonymous)
This phrase refers to self-management and emotional control. Getting carried away by anger, envy or hatred may seem right at a given time, but in the long run it can have negative consequences for oneself. The wise person knows this and therefore warns about it. If one could see himself in that situation (out of control) he would see the mistake he is making.

5. If you want something you never had, you must do something you never did (Anonymous)
If you always do the same, surely you will always have the same consequences. If what you want is to have new experiences, meet interesting people or grow up at work, you better start thinking about new activities and do things that you usually don't do.

6. He who seeks a flawless friend is left without friends (Turkish proverb)
The intention of this phrase is to make us notice that we all have defects and make many mistakes , there is no perfect person in this world. 
If you want to know more about perfectionism, I invite you to read this article " Perfectionist personality: the disadvantages of perfectionism ", because being a person who is too perfectionist causes negative consequences for oneself.

7. The smile costs less than electricity and gives more light (Scottish proverb)
This phrase is one of those inspiring phrases, but it is also a wise phrase. Smiling helps maintain good mood, beautifies the face and awakens good thoughts. 
It is not the same to ask someone for something coldly, than to ask for it with a smile, because the smile not only produces a very positive effect on ourselves, but also on the other person.

8. Do not find the fault, find the remedy (Henry Ford)
This phrase reminds me of one that a good friend always told me: " If you are not part of the solution, you become part of the problem. " Both phrases do not mean that we should not look for the origin of the problem, as it is necessary to do so. But instead of lamenting the fault eternally, we must solve as soon as possible what has happened wrong. This is the key to improvement.

9. The pessimist complains of the wind; The optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the candles (William George Ward)
Both being a pessimist and too optimistic can have negative consequences for oneself. The pessimist will see everything wrong and there will be nothing for that evil to change. The optimist will see everything well and distort reality to fit his thoughts. Instead,  a realistic person tries to solve the problems despite knowing that it is complicated on many occasions. That is, he keeps his feet on the ground and acts sensibly.

12. Reflection is the path to immortality; lack of reflection, the road to death (Buddha)
This phrase taken from Buddhist philosophy refers to the importance of reflection in personal development and in learning for and for life. We have all learned from mistakes, but each one lives the experiences in a unique way. In order to retain these experiences, an active thinking process about what we live is necessary to, in this way, question the meaning of these experiences for us. Without doing this, learning, on many occasions, will not occur.

This phrase is the same as the phrase "It is not richer who has more, but who least needs", and refers to  the people who least want material things or need, are those who will definitely be happier in the life. Having a lot does not mean being happier, because if one is content with little, one does not need to have much wealth.

This phrase by the author of Romeo and Juliet reminds us that falling in love is one of the most extraordinary sensations that human beings can enjoy. Love is like a drug that can make you feel high and can make you commit incredible follies that you have never thought. Love can make us lose our mind, and if in the end everything ends, one will at least remember with satisfaction having lived those intimate moments, and having experienced such intense emotions and inexplicable feelings.

18. When the wise point the moon, the fool is fixed on the finger (Anonymous)
