Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.
One of the best things in the world to be is a boy; it requires no experience, but needs some practice to be a good one.
His labour is a chant, His idleness a tune; Oh, for a bee's experience Of clovers and of noon!
I have learned by some experience, by many examples, and by the writings of countless others before me, also occupied in the search, that certain environments, certain modes of life, certain rules of conduct are more conducive to inner and outer harmony than others
The use of the term art medium is, to say the least, misleading, for it is the artist that creates a work of art not the medium. It is the artist in photography that gives form to content by a distillation of ideas, thought, experience, insight and understanding.
For me, the creation of a photograph is experienced as a heightened emotional response, most akin to poetry and music, each image the culmination of a compelling impulse I cannot deny. Whether working with a human figure or a still life, I am deeply aware of my spiritual connection with it. In my life, as in my work, I am motivated by a great yearning for balance and harmony beyond the realm of human experience, reaching for the essence of oneness with the Universe.
The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability
Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding
Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him
An illness is like a journey into a far country; it sifts all one's experience and removes it to a point so remote that it appears like a vision.
We all learn by experience but some of us have to go to summer school.
An aphorism is true where it has fixed the impression of a genuine experience
To get profit without risk, experience without danger, and reward without work, is as impossible as it is to live without being born.
By alienation is meant a mode of experience in which the person experiences himself as an alien. He has become, one might say, estranged from himself. He does not experience himself as the centre of his world, as the creator of his own acts - but his acts and their consequences have become his masters, whom he obeys, or whom he may even worship. The alienated person is out of touch with himself as he is out of touch with any other person. He, like the others, is experienced as things are experienced; with the senses and with common sense, but at the same time without being related to oneself and to the world outside positively
Experience suggests it doesn\\\'t matter so much how you got here, as what you do after you arrive.
I read because I love the experience, because it is a powerful teacher of life, because it transforms me.
A theory is only as good as its assumptions. If the premises are false, the theory has no real scientific value. The only scientific criterion for judging the validity of a scientific theory is a confrontation with the data of experience.
We ought not to look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dear bought experience.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.n
It takes someone with a vision of the possibilities to attain new levels of experience. Someone with the courage to live his dreams.
You have to see the pattern, understand the order and experience the vision.
For those who have seen the Earth from space, and for the hundreds and perhaps thousands more who will, the experience most certainly changes your perspective. The things that we share in our world are far more valuable than those which divide us.
The friendship between a man and a woman which does not lead to marriage or desire for marriage may
be a life long experience of the greatest value to themselves and to all their circle of acquaintance
and of activity; but for this type of friendship both a rare man and a rare woman are needed. Perhaps
it should be added that either the man or the woman thus deeply bound in lifelong friendship who seeks
marriage must find a still rarer man or woman to wed, to make such a three cornered comradeship a permanent success.
Our ability to achieve success depends on the strength of our wings gained through knowledge and experience. The greater our knowledge
and experience, the higher we can fly.
People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.
