The Quotes of Sadguru Wamanrao Pai
"Those who learn from the experiences of others
are truly wise; those who learn only from
their own experiences are lacking in wisdom
and those who refuse to learn either from
the experiences of others or even from
their own experiences are nothing but fools!"
"No one in the world, not even the
Creator Lord Bramha, can predict when,
where or in which way, some person or
the other would be of great service to oneself;
hence true wisdom lies in skilfully establishing
excellent relations with everyone and
making every effort to maintain them."
