Jean Jacques Rousseau: Wisdom

“What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?”
—Jean Jacques Rousseau.

Jean Jacques Rousseau: Silence

“A person who knows little likes to talk, and one who knows much mostly keeps silent. This is because a person who knows little thinks that everything he knows is important, and wants to tell everyone. A person who knows much also knows that there is much more he doesn’t know. That’s why he speaks only when it is necessary to speak, and when he is not asked questions, he keeps his silence.” – Jean Jacques Rousseau.
