If we stand tall, it is because we stand on the backs of those who came before us.
This proverbs reminds us to recognize those who have come before us and laid down the foundation of our lives. People like our parents and grand parents, for example, who might have provided knowledge, wealth, and love. We’ve inherited all these goods from them, giving us a better starting point for our lives.
