The Wisdom Commons is an interactive website that seeks to elevate our shared moral core, sometimes called universal ethics. It is a place to find and discuss information about virtues that human beings generally agree are important like generosity, compassion and courage. As a user or member, you can search or input quotes, proverbs, meditations, stories, and essays from many traditions.
As we add features, members will be able also to join a deeper dialogue about ethics and about the specific virtues featured on the site. From your personal Wisdom Page, you will be able to create a gift book, cards or mementos that includes quotes and stories you find powerful. Tangible items like these give you ways to share some of your most deeply held values with others.
