“Memes” are graphic images with a very small amount of text. You see them commonly on Facebook, and can be funny, trenchant, pithy, catchy, and evocative. I tend to make my memes with a bit more wording, and really consider them to represent values and wisdom. In the following blog, I show some of the memes I have made over the last year or two, and point out how the quotes about values and wisdom depicted can really be made scintillating and compelling when coupled with graphic imagery. Enjoy!
Here is this quote made larger:
Santayana is in a special category, along with others such as Will Durant, D.H. Lawrence, Walter Lippmann, John Ruskin, Gore Vidal, Daniel N. Robinson, Jacob Bronowski, Harold Bloom, and Christopher Hitchens. I consider them real “men of letters” type individuals.
You are viewing quotes about values and wisdom, using memes as the medium, here on Values of the Wise. Enjoy!
My mother studies the integrity of science very carefully, and she was wise to point out that science has its frauds, too. In fact, this study featuring the prominent whistle-blower John Ionnadis, M.D., is really very disconcerting.

Naomi Klein is not only a prolific author, she is a real heroine when it comes to working hard on behalf of important causes. She is no armchair philosopher. Her website is http://www.naomiklein.org/main
Bill Moyers (below) is a marvelous and wise American who has said many wonderful things that could be considered bona fide quotes about values and wisdom. He is really quite a journalist. He believes in “the Deep State,” which I’m not sure I absolutely do, but I still would take my hat off for him if he were in the room.
And finally, a controversial one. What do you think – is this wisdom, or just myopia? Insight, or cynicism?
