This proverb from the Buddha speaks to the importance of lifelong learning. It suggests that if we do not expand our knowledge and understanding of the world, we will not grow in wisdom or experience. Instead, we will remain stagnant, our bodies aging but our minds not developing. This proverb encourages us to seek out new knowledge, to explore, and to keep learning throughout our lives. Without this, we will not reach our full potential and will never truly experience the joy and growth that comes from expanding our understanding.
