Quote by William James
We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.
Mistakes are the stepping stones to wisdom. We learn from trial and error; we become wise by understanding problems.
Wisdom is the power to see and the inclination to choose the best and highest goal, together with the surest means of attaining it.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.
True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
Wisdom is the power to put our time and our knowledge to the proper use.
