Day 152: June 1 – Experience Is The Mother Of Wisdom

~ Park at Buckingham Palace

Wisdom

Let us then suppose the mind to be, as we say, white paper, void of all characters, without any ideals; how comes it to be furnished? Whence comes it by that vast store which the busy and boundless fancy of man has painted on it with almost endless variety? Whence has it all the materials of reason and knowledge? To this I answer, in one word, from experience.

~ John Locke, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding
