The wisdom of the past is the light of the past
The light which is to be the wisdom of the future
The light of the future casts the shadows of tomorrow

from Madvillain (Ft. Madlib & Quasimoto) – Shadows of Tomorrow Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The wisdom of the past is what makes the past so grand and important such as the enlightenment. That same “light” or wisdom determines the future. Knowing that there is wisdom and success in the future makes everything else dull and colorless.
