It has been my privilege on various occasions to converse with presidents of the United States and important men in other governments. At the close of each such occasion, I have reflected on the rewarding experience of standing with confidence in the presence of an acknowledged leader.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay.
I think that there is a sort of spiritual power that is translating into our bodies as we perform. Performers give, and giving is so important. It can heal. That is my experience, anyway.
Any film, or to me any creative endeavour, no matter who you're working with, is, in many cases, a wonderful experience.
I can cook, but I also want everything to look beautiful on the plate - then I get upset when people eat it. Everyone just tears through it, and that makes me sad. It's not a rewarding experience for me to cook.
Perhaps the biggest myth about cynicism is that it deepens with age. I think what really happens is that experience painfully rips away layers of scales from our eyes, and so we do indeed become more cynical about many of the things we naively accepted when younger.
You don't have to be a chef or even a particularly good cook to experience proper kitchen alchemy: the moment when ingredients combine to form something more delectable than the sum of their parts.
It may, however, be said that the level of experience to which concepts are inapplicable cannot yield any knowledge of a universal character, for concepts alone are capable of being socialized.
I want to be able to experience everything. I want to experience being a husband, experience being a father, experience, maybe, hopefully, someday being a grandfather, and all those things. I want that experience. When I die, I want to be exhausted.

I had a lot of experience with people smarter than I am.
Gerald R. Ford

A commitment to human rights cannot be fostered simply through the transmission of knowledge. Action and experience play a crucial role in the learning process.
U2 - that's a band that never should have existed. There's no life experience in any of their songs.
The soul is everlasting, and its learning experience is lifetime after lifetime.
In 3-D filmmaking, I can take images and manipulate them infinitely, as opposed to taking still photographs and laying them one after the other. I move things in all directions. It's such a liberating experience.
Who would want a face that hasn't seen or lived properly, hasn't got any wrinkles that come with age, experience and laughter? Not me, anyway.
For some young people, their first experience ever hearing punk rock music was playing the Green Bay Packers on 'Madden'.
Billie Joe Armstrong
It's been my experience that the longer I do yoga, the more I want to know, the more I am able to understand and the less judgmental I am.
Discord or jealousy inhibits the ability of the Holy Ghost to teach us and inhibits our ability to receive light and truth. And the feelings of disappointment that invariably follow are the seeds of greater discord and faultfinding among those who expected a learning experience that did not come.
Henry B. Eyring
Science fiction is like a blender - you can put in any historical experience and take influences from everything you see, read or experience.
Very often I've known people who wouldn't say a word to each other, but they'd go to see movies together and experience life that way.
Going to a party, for me, is as much a learning experience as, you know, sitting in a lecture.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
