Experience Quotations

Aldous Huxley Quote
Experience is not what happens to you; it's what you do with what happens to you.
Aldous Huxley

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.
Eleanor Roosevelt

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.

James Russell Lowell Quote
One thorn of experience is worth a whole wilderness of warning.

Helen Keller
