How to learn


By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.


Learn from the past


We can draw lessons from the past, but we cannot live in it.

Lyndon B. Johnson

The power of experience


The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Build up experience


What the world actually values and rewards is experience and confidence… A lot of people are really smart but they actually don’t amount to much.

Dr. Alok Kanojia

Experience life


Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.

Soren Kierkegaard

Remember happiness


It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.

Chuck Palahniuk

Try it out


What’s the good of living if you don’t try a few things?

Charles M. Schulz

Pull the trigger and start the learning


I learned a long time ago that there is something worse than missing the goal, and that’s not pulling the trigger.

Mia Hamm

Learning it the hard way


Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.

Making own experiences

One thorn of experience is worth a whole wilderness of warning.
