100 Words Of Wisdom Quotes

These 100 inspirational words of wisdom quotes are all thoughtful expressions from ancient times to today. All of the quotes are from the wisdom quotes & sayings pages on this site, but as there are so many entries on these pages (and always increasing), I have taken what I believe to be the most inspirational wisdom quotes to form this
page. There were many quotes that could have been used, but are also suitable for other quote collections that I will be creating. The quotes are listed in order of the authors surname and the unknown authors/sources are after.

This collection and others are available to download and print as small quote card box sets from my Spiritual QuotesTo Live By Etsy shop.
