Learn all you can from the mistakes of others.
You won't have time to make them all yourself.
Experience is not what happens to a man.
It is what a man does with what happens to him.
Aldous Leonard Huxley
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to
learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for
their apparent disinclination to do so.
Then, without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start
of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time.
Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful.
Whoever doesn't know it must learn and find by experience
that a quiet conscience makes one strong.
Intuition is the very force or activity of the soul
in its experience
through whatever has been the experience of the soul itself.
Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.
One faces the future with one's past.
Pearl S. Buck
We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success.
We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do;
and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.
