Quote category: Experience
Experience is not what happens to you, it is what you do with what happens to you.
Experience is what enables you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.
No one steps into the same river twice.
A single idea, if it is right, saves us the labour of an infinity of experience.
We collect data, things, people, ideas, profound experiences, never penetrating any of them... But there are other times.
There are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory.
We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.
If you will call your troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be.
John R. Miller
Experience is a name men give to their mistakes.
Failures are like skinned knees, painful but superficial, they heal quickly.
Experience is the worst teacher; it gives the test before presenting the lesson.
Experience is one thing you can't get for nothing.
