And wine can of their wits the wise beguile, Make the sage frolic, and the serious smile.Alexander Pope
Un fol enseigne bien un sage. A fool has a lot to teach a wise man.
Alas! I have nor hope nor health, Nor peace within nor calm around, Nor that content surpassing wealth The sage in meditation found.Percy Bysshe Shelley

The master made it his task to systematically destroy every doctrine, every belief, every concept of the divine, for these things, which were originally intended as pointers, were now taken as descriptions. He loved to quote the Eastern saying: "When the sage points at the moon, all that the idiot sees is the finger."anthony de mello

Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.jean de la fontaine
All too willingly man sees himself as the centre of the universe, as something not belonging to the rest of nature but standing apart as a different and higher being.

The sage roams freely in the realm in which nothing can escape and all endures.

Pythagoras said that this world was like a stage, Whereon many play their parts; the lookers-on, the sage Philosophers are, saith he, whose part is to learn The manners of all nations, and the good from the bad to discern.

I have on my office wall a wise and useful reminder by Anne Morrow Lindbergh concerning one of the realities of life. She wrote, "My life cannot implement in action the demands of all the people to whom my heart responds." That's good counsel for us all, not as an excuse to forgo duty, but as a sage point about pace and the need for quality in relationships.
There then stood in the garden hard by the same fence On which Rykov's triangle had based its defence, A cheese-house, built of lattice, big, heavy with age, Of timbers cross-wise fastened, not unlike a cage. In it shone many dozens of white cheeses lying, While suspended around them big bunches hung drying Of wild thyme , sage , cardoon , and of fennel and bennet , Miss Hreczeha's home drugstore all hanging within it.
