Growing Up

d

Wisdom

Reflecting back

Seeking to learn

Gaining ground inch by inch

d

Intelligence

Born from a hunger

Consuming knowledge

Learning to do more than just consume

d

Experience

Life’s best teacher

Granting lessons one needs

Give the trials one does not want

d

Prudence

Combining reflection with experience

Redoing lessons with knowledge of the answers

Trying to correct past mistakes
