Some of my favorites? Like these few?

"Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak." --Unknown
"A can of worms won't open itself." --Unknown
"We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children." --Ancient Indian Proverb


there is one philosopher who said these:

“Say what is true, although it may be bitter and displeasing to people.”

“No man is true in the truest sense of the word but he who is true in work, in deed, and in thought.”

“Riches are not from and abundance of wordly goods but from a contented mind.”

“The son of Man groweth and with him grow two things - the love of wealth and love of long life.”

do you know who that is?


The Financial Philosopher


I have not heard those. I especially like the one referring to light and sound.


I have not exposed myself enough to words from Muhammad. Thanks for the inspiration! I must say that I enjoy eastern philosophy and would argue that, like Jesus, Muhammad is not only a "prophet" but a masterful philosopher...

Thanks to all for your comments...


See, for example, the book "Desert Wisdom: Sacred Middle Eastern Writings From The Goddess Through The Sufis" by Neil Douglas-Klotz, HarperSanFrancisco, 1995, isbn 0-06-061996-1 for more Judeo/Christian/Islamic sayings.

The Financial Philosopher

Thanks Ron...

As a "student" of philosophy, it helps to learn of new sources from people like you.

Thanks again...


Interesting site, nice list.
