"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    This is very true. So many young people think that they are wise because they have studied, but this is not the case. Some of the wisest people I know have never set foot in a university or even a school in some cases, and yet you can learn so much from them. You should always try to learn from people who are wiser than you are, as that is the best way to make sure that you're able to succeed.

    Wisdom is basically how do we effectively utilize our past experiences in present for a better future. There are many people who learned from their past mistakes or experiences, build insights, and set their current priorities accordingly. But, there are many others who linger on their past without getting anything effective out of it.

    This saying is very much applicable in our life. Because people generally assume that we learn many things from the past and want to live in dream of past experiences. It is undeniable truth that past experiences linger in our mind of and on. But ultimately It is the future which encourages the everyone to move on for achieving desired goal in stipulated period. So we tend to be more wise and prudent to take all the responsibilities in our shoulder
