When we learn that real wisdom comes directly from God, we shall no longer seek knowledge through the training of the senses to discriminate between illusions; nor shall we depend on experience for instruction. Real wisdom does not come from the experience; experience can only tell us how it feels to live in illusions and overcome illusions; but it tells us nothing about how it feels to live in the real and ascend into the greater and the greater of the life real. ~ Christian D. Larsen (The Pathway of Roses: Paths to the Life Beautiful) ~
Barry Schwartz: “A wise person is made, not born. Wisdom depends on experience and not just any experience. You need the time to get to know the people that you are serving, you need permission to be allowed to improvise, to try new things, occasionally to fail and to learn from your failures. And you need to be mentored by wise teachers.”
