Wisdom Finds Us

Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2012

Easy is as easy does,
Who hasn't heard that phrase?
But what really does that mean,
If you don't do, easy never finds the way?

There are so many different ways,
That messages are tangled in.
Find a quote or poem you like,
Then make sense of what is says.

Sometimes you may not understand,
But then there will be times you do.
And those times are when we truly benefit,
And bring the message into view.

Wisdom finds us in many ways,
It's up to us to allow it to help.
Many people benefit from these thoughts,
And it's a way to allow yourself to self-help.

Poet: Patience Strong

If you stand very still in the heart of a wood -
you will hear many wonderful things -
The snap of a twig and the wind in the trees
and the whirr of invisible wings...

If you stand very still in the turmoil of life -
and you wait for the voice from within -
you'll be led down the quiet ways of wisdom and peace -
in a mad world of chaos and din...

If you stand very still and you hold to your faith -
you will get all the help that you ask -
You will draw from the Silence the things that you need -
Hope and courage, and strength for your task.

Life, sometimes so wearying is worth its weight in gold
The experience of traveling lends a wisdom that is old

My brother, you are the one who is always there,
You give me your wisdom and show that you care.

Catherine Pulsifer, What Would I Do
Brother Poems

Despite popular wisdom, it is not necessary to personally live through something before being able to fully understand it or guide another through it.

Ray Guarendi, Adoption
Experience Quotes

We should not ignore the wisdom of church forebears just because it’s old ... We consider the history because God does not give all of his wisdom to any one time or people.

Bryan Chapell, Christ-Centered Worship
God Has A Plan

A quote is the germ of growth; the seed upon which each person can grow in wisdom, in strength, and in passion.

Byron Pulsifer
