They speak about you BEHIND YOU, simply because they literally are BEHIND YOU.
The author anthony douglas Williams said knowledge comes from learning while wisdom comes from living.
Today I would like to clarify the difference between knowledge and wisdom.
Knowledge is what we study in schools and universities.
'Wisdom' is the ability to make correct judgments and decisions. It is an intangible quality gained through our experiences in life.
Every minute of our life teaches us a new lesson. These lessons are experiences that create a schema to our life and our behaviors. It shapes our expectation.
In short, life teaches us how to be wise and the tough teacher that life is, it’s not about waiting for the storm to pass away but its rather about learning to dance in the rain.
It takes great pain to have great wisdom.
