Make Wisdom Your Greatest Strength!
Values of the Wise was created in 2004 by Jason Merchey. It is a unique compilation of wisdom from the realms of applied psychology, ancient philosophy, critical thinking, inspirational quotes, personal growth, ethics, and above all, wisdom.
Jason has dedicated his academic/writing life to the collection of examples of timeless wisdom throughout the ages. His goal with Values of the Wise website is to bring ancient wisdom and progressive thinking to life—at no cost to visitors. Through his expansive research of books, news stories, songs, movies, and poems, Merchey has created this novel approach to wisdom.
Covering a multitude of topics such as social justice, economics, politics, social criticism, and morality, Values of the Wise seeks to make knowledge easily accessible for the interested reader. Virtue and fulfillment and meaning can result from such self-knowledge. This is as close to true happiness as one is likely to find.
The ambitious project features an extensive searchable quote database (The Wisdom Archive), podcasts (Values and Ethics Dialogues), books about wisdom (The Values of the Wise Series), and a massive blog featuring Jason’s writings in seven different subject areas.
Values of the Wise also features two unique, free tools to help one understand one’s values (The Top Values ToolTM) and to know more about how one goes about making moral choices and ethical decisions (The Ethical Decision-Making GuideTM).
Nothing at Values of the Wise costs anyone anything, nor are there annoying ads to cope with.
The purpose of this 16-year-old odyssey of public philosophy is the spreading of a myriad of ideas to encourage free-thinking, critical decision-making, and virtue. Values of the Wise is a stellar and unique guide to asking and answering the big questions in life.
You can’t spend a few hours here and not come away with some favorite inspirational quotes and hopefully an enhancement to your critical thinking skills! This is the place for quotes about wisdom, philosophy quotes, and quotes about personal growth which can help you to make wisdom your greatest strength!
