Wisdom - why one person’s is rarely of benefit to others

Whatever the wise may tell them, human beings want to experience things for themselves, and they do just that. Some time later, when they have been badly treated and disappointed by life, they finally understand and then want others to benefit from their newly found knowledge. But why should others listen to them? They too want to have their own experiences. And that is why the wisdom some people have gained by a great deal of effort is so rarely of benefit to others. Humans have to be thoroughly stung and bitten by life before they will admit that what the wise say is true. And then they in turn become wise. But there are very few who will seek to benefit from their wisdom. This explains why each new generation repeats the errors of the previous one. This is true for individuals and also for societies. Who really wants to learn the lessons of history?
