The light of the past is the light which was
The wisdom of the past is the light of the past
The light of the future is the light which is to be
The wisdom of the future is the light of the future see

Meaning

The light of the past is the knowledge and wisdom of the past, the light gives wisdom because it lights the path once travelled, the light of the future is the wisdom of the future lighting up the path of the future… Knowledge. Deep.
