“ 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. ”
Categories: Wisdom Experience Learning
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.
Tradition is not about imitating previous generations. It is about learning from their experience
Reality is timeless but wisdom always has to be contemporary because wisdom is gleaned out of present experience
Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.
