Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.
Vernon Sanders Law
One thorn of experience is worth a whole wilderness of warning.
James Russel Lowell
Intelligent individuals learn from every thing and every one; average people, from their experiences. The stupid already have all the answers.
Be brave enough to suck at something new.
I must admit, that I have learned more from my negative experiences than I have ever learned from my positive one.
John Paul Warren
Not that grief vanishes…but that it begins in time to coexist with pleasure; sorrow sits right beside the rediscovery of what is to be cherished in experience. Just when you think you’re done.
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.
When you are face to face with a difficulty, you are up against a discovery.
An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field.
Life is not a problem to be solves but a mystery to be experienced.
