What this quote means educationally is that if you don't have any plans to do after school than whatever that you have learned will all be left in regret. Personally, this quote does not only apply to education but also in life. In life, the choices you make are based on the experiences that you have undergone through. With this in mind, if you repeat mistakes and furthermore not improve then you will never truly be human because to me being human is to always find a way to improve yourself. This quote is by Buddha which Hermann Hesse wrote about in his book Siddhartha. Siddhartha is a real man, therefore, this book talks about his real journey of self-discovery to achieve enlightenment. During this journey, he undergoes failures and other spiritual experiences to carry out his goal by learning to take action of what he has learned.
