Refresh your minds with marvels of wisdom because minds too get tired as your bodies do. — Hazrat Ali

Launched several years ago, in 2011, upon receiving special permission from Aiglemont to publish His Highness the Aga Khan’s speeches, the NanoWisdoms Archive is a unique website dedicated solely to the Ismaili Imamat’s speeches, interviews and writings. With over 500 readings — from,,,,,, institutional publications, printed materials, media Web sites and other sources — is the most comprehensive, public collection of Imamat knowledge available today.

Short and Extended Quote collections

Already numbering in the thousands, NanoWisdoms’ growing collection of short and extended quotes from His Highness the Aga Khan’s speeches, interviews and writings — and from earlier Shia and Ismaili Imams (pbut), the Holy Prophet (pbuh) or the Qur’an — is the largest collection of quotes from the Ismaili Imamat available on-line.

The entire collection is also available organized by theme or topic and all quotes are also available in attractively formatted PDFs, ideal for posting on jamatkhana or other notice boards.
