About this Quote

This quote by Edith Wharton talks to the significance of individual experience in creating wisdom. Life is the only educator that can supply us with the knowledge as well as understanding that is necessary to make informed choices. Knowledge that is not gotten through individual experience is not as valuable as knowledge that is obtained with life's lessons. We must gain from our own experiences in order to establish a moral compass that will assist us through life. Without personal experience, we can not absolutely recognize the repercussions of our decisions and also the impact they carry our lives. Life is the only actual counselor, and also it is through our very own experiences that we can gain the wisdom essential to make enlightened decisions.
