Wisdom Learned The Hard Way: A Haiku

Early in the morning remembering the actions I regret. Unwilling to learn from my elders caused so much heartache. Eventually I learned this bit of wisdom: 

  1. a wise person learns from their mistakes
  2. a wiser person means from the mistakes of others
  3. the wisest person learns from the successes of others

Also I figured out that I learn more by listening than talking.
