“ It is not necessary to go through every kind of human experience in order to attain the ultimate wisdom. You should be able to learn by studying the lives of others. ”
This should be your new attitude toward life: no matter what your experiences are, you are going to enjoy them, in the same way, that you enjoy viewing the pleasant or painful experiences of another person in a motion picture.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Your experiences bring wisdom according to the measure of the cup of your receptivity
The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence; the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.
Wisdom comes from experience. Experience is often a result of lack of wisdom.
