Once upon a time there was a woman...not so wise... but eager to learn - how to become wise.
The first step to become wise is to read (1). Then to think (2) about it, and then to read again. And think about it again. Again and again. As long as it takes to understand (3) .
After three steps she (that's me ) was on her way to become wise. That's for to say: a little ;)
# Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
