Wisdom, as you may be well aware, is a state of mind acquired over a period of time. No one is born with an inherent sense of wisdom. It is learned and developed in our minds as we grow, and as we make mistakes in our lives. A life without mistakes would be a fairly redundant one as there would be absolutely no scope for growth.
If you listen carefully to what the people around you say and if you have the ability to read between the lines, you will sense the wisdom that is imparted to you by every single human being. Many of us would not notice these words of wisdom, as we would be unable to perceive it, but that does not mean that it does not happen.
We have a tendency to cling onto wise words and thoughts about life and love by writers, world leaders, celebrities and superiors, simply because we are programed to listen to what they have to say. The wisdom that is imparted to us from other unlikelier sources more often than not simply gets lost in translation. Before you get into reading some wise sayings by famous people, keep in mind that wisdom is not collected, it is acquired. Learn from your own enriching experiences and pay close attention to detail.
