20 of the Wisest Quotes of All Time

Wisdom is something that comes from experience. Humans experience things differently from each other, they are always seeking wisdom no matter what the experience may be.

We use this wisdom to guide ourselves away from past mistakes and hopefully reach our endgame goals. Wisdom of all kinds has been passed down throughout every single generation of man. It is only acceptable that we give back the wisdom we have received to those who need it more than we do.
