Through The Wilderness


We do not receive wisdom,
we must discover it for ourselves,
after a journey through the wilderness
- which no one else can make for us,
which no one can spare us, 
for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last 
to regard the world.
The lives that you admire, 
the attitudes that seem noble to you, 
have not been shaped by a schoolmaster. 
They represent a struggle and a victory. 
 ~Marcel Proust
