And life's enchanted cup but sparkles near the brim.

His had been quaffedº too quickly, and he found

The dregs were wormwood, but he filled again,

And from a purer fount, on holier ground,

And deemed its spring perpetual; but in vain!

    Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that the boy learned the importance of timing, since he learned "about not launching out too soon." In addition, he also learned about being careful, since he climbed "carefully, with the same pains you use to fill a cup up to the brim, and even above the brim," and about keeping his poise, that is, about remaining steady. There are no references about learning to tell the truth, so option D should be discarded.
