You may have attained some wisdom. You may have attained a certain age and had certain experiences and feel entitled to express what you have learned, to teach others the ways of life, but in the end a wise person knows that you cannot teach the lessons of life, for they must be learned firsthand. And so, though a wise person may speak of what has made them wise, a wise person also says to others, “Go live! Experience what it means to be alive. Life is all about becoming wise in your own way, through your own life experiences. Go learn how to live and become wise too!” In this manner a wise person passes on wisdom to a new generation of wise ones.
