There are no regrets in life, just lessons.

The lessons I learned from the dark days at Alibaba are that you've got to make your team have value, innovation, and vision. Also, if you don't give up, you still have a chance. And, when you are small, you have to be very focused and rely on your brain, not your strength.

I have to have three or four books going simultaneously. If I'm not impressed in the first 20 pages, I don't bother reading the rest, especially with novels. I'm not a book-club style reader. I'm not looking for life lessons or wanting people to think I'm smart because I'm reading a certain book.
We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.
All the lessons of history in four sentences: Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad with power. The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly small. The bee fertilizes the flower it robs. When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
Charles A. Beard

Ezra Taft Benson

One of the lessons of history is that nothing is often a good thing to do and always a clever thing to say.
That's the reason they're called lessons, because they lesson from day to day.
Fear is not a good teacher. The lessons of fear are quickly forgotten.
Mary Catherine Bateson
Everything shapes you to be the person you are today. Sometimes hard lessons pay off dividends.
The very concept of history implies the scholar and the reader. Without a generation of civilized people to study history, to preserve its records, to absorb its lessons and relate them to its own problems, history, too, would lose its meaning.
George F. Kennan
William Arthur Ward
