    I do not think we always have wisdom until we have walked through the fire. If a man does find wisdom before then he is blessed.

    It is better to be wise first but unfortunately wisdom usually comes through experience.

    Life is the most patient teacher. It bombards us with problems until we know the best way to overcome each and every obstacle. Because of these lessons learned, we become wiser.
    Though, if it can happen the other way around, I mean wiser first, so much the better.

    Always before, so that you do not make a mistake.

    it is definitely better to be wise first so that we don't have to repent later for any mistakes. But not all of us can always be wise before doing a thing or taking a decision. We gain wisdom through experience in life.

    I say be wise after, just because they say it is better to do and explain later... but the good advice would be to be wise first and then you don't have to worry about the consequences!

    Apsotle Jack,

    we are not perfect people.  Wisdom is born of failures.

    Learning can be hurtful. 

    Even when we do not know what  to do.............we should know what NOT to do!
