Wise words

The difference between
In school, you' re taught
a lesson and then given
a test. In life, you' re
given a test that
teaches you a lesson.

Except that in school the test is not always related to the lesson taken.

Except it doesn't always work that way

Some people say "you gain wisdom from experience", but that cannot be further from the truth. What you gain wisdom from is your PERCEPTION of the experience, how you see and analyze it, figuring out what it means to you. You gain more wisdom from books than from experience for the simple reason that many books (especially regarding philosophy, religion, motivation, so on, so fourth) tend to expand your mind-set, thus allowing you to choose the right path for you, rather than simply going down the path your circumstances have forced you on

This is why you get some people that are younger than yourself, and wiser than your father; because it's not what you go through that makes you wise, but how you go through it

A) Get out of the car, get punched and get car taken
B) Skidatle the **** outta there before they go nig nog on me

This reminds me how i always only learn what i know is wrong after i take a test.
I learn from my errors, not from being lectured dully for 7 hours a day

Experience: Something you gain right after you needed it.

Life is just randomness. There are no tests no lessons. Stop trying to make sense out of things. We are nothing but large bacteria.
