Wisdom comes from experience. Experience is often a result of lack of wisdom.
We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.
We can have in life but one great experience at best, and the secret of life is to reproduce that experience as often as possible.
Happiness, Success, Excellence: They are not something you get for knowing the path; they are something you experience by walking it.
Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you.
Is it not rather what we expect in men, that they should have numerous strands of experience lying side by side and never compare them with each other?
It was the experience of mystery - even if mixed with fear - that engendered religion.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

It is well known to all experienced minds that our firmest convictions are often dependent on subtle impressions for which words are quite too coarse a medium.
