He who gathers only from himself will never know true wisdom – because true wisdom is a great blend of yourself and everything and everyone around you.
It is through our exposure to the environment around us and through encounters with others that we learn the most about life and about ourselves.
Life is in the experiences we have and the people we meet. No man is an island – we cannot go through life expecting to know and understand everything. So before we can fully understand it all, we must allow ourselves to gather from all the flowers of the world.
Open yourself up to what the world has to offer. Travel like the bee. Smell all the flowers and find your favorites. Let all the diversity in the world enrich you and your soul, and I am sure that, at the end of it all, you will know true wisdom.
