It is always self-defeating to pretend to the style of a generation younger than your own; it simply erases your own experience in history.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In order to experience everyday spirituality, we need to remember that we are spiritual beings spending some time in a human body.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If experience has established any one thing in this world, it has established this: that it is well for any great class and description of men in society to be able to say for itself what it wants, and not to have other classes, the so-called educated and intelligent classes, acting for it as its proctors, and supposed to understand its wants and to provide for them. A class of men may often itself not either fully understand its wants, or adequately express them; but it has a nearer interest and a more sure diligence in the matter than any of its proctors, and therefore a better chance of success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Bad experience is a school that only fools keep going to.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we suffer anguish we return to early childhood because that is the period in which we first learnt to suffer the experience of total loss. It was more than that. It was the period in which we suffered more total losses than in all the rest of our life put together.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is an axiom, enforced by all the experience of the ages, that they who rule industrially will rule politically.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The traditional novel form continues to enlarge our experience in those very areas where the wide-angle lens and the Cinema screen tend to narrow it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The modern American tourist now fills his experience with pseudo-events. He has come to expect both more strangeness and more familiarity than the world naturally offers.

They will maintain that Oedipus or Berenice or Hamlet or The Three Sisters performed with beauty and with love fires the spirit and gives them a reminder that daily drabness is not necessarily all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I reached in experience the nirvana which is unborn, unrivalled, secure from attachment, undecaying and unstained. This condition is indeed reached by me which is deep, difficult to see, difficult to understand, tranquil, excellent, beyond the reach of mere logic, subtle, and to be realized only by the wise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Nothing which has entered into our experience is ever lost.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is a sort of veteran woman of condition, who, having lived always in the grand monde, and having possibly had some gallantries, together with the experience of five and twenty or thirty years, form a young fellow better than all the rules that can be given him. Wherever you go, make some of those women your friends; which a very little matter will do. Ask their advice, tell them your doubts or difficulties as to your behavior; but take great care not to drop one word of their experience; for experience implies age, and the suspicion of age, no woman, let her be ever so old, ever forgives.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you are not concerned about the outcome of a circumstance, you will experience no fear. Whatever the outcome will be, will be, whether you fear it or not.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of face within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The character ethic, which I believe to be the foundation of success, teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and that people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Common experience is the gold reserve which confers an exchange value on the currency which words are; without this reserve of shared experiences, all our pronouncements are checks drawn on insufficient funds.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I try to avoid experience if I can. Most experience is bad.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What is all wisdom save a collection of platitudes? Take fifty of our current proverbial sayings -- they are so trite, so threadbare, that we can hardly bring our lips to utter them. None the less they embody the concentrated experience of the race and the man who orders his life according to their teaching cannot go far wrong.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The first essential in writing about anything is that the writer should have no experience of the matter.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men renounce whatever they have in common with women so as to experience no commonality with women; and what is left, according to men, is one piece of flesh a few inches long, the penis. The penis is sensate; the penis is the man; the man is human; the penis signifies humanity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It takes a lot of experience of life to see why some relationships last and others do not. But we do not have to wait for a crisis to get an idea of the future of a particular relationship. Our behavior in little every incidents tells us a great deal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is our experience that political leaders do not always mean the opposite of what they say.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In spite of his practical ability, some of his experience had petrified into maxims and quotations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We women are always in danger of living too exclusively in the affections; and though our affections are perhaps the best gifts we have, we ought also to have our share of the more independent life -- some joy in things for their own sake. It is piteous to see the helplessness of some sweet women when their affections are disappointed -- because all their teaching has been, that they can only delight in study of any kind for the sake of a personal love. They have never contemplated an independent delight in ideas as an experience which they could confess without being laughed at. Yet surely women need this defense against passionate affliction even more than men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Humans have the ability to shift perspective. We can experience the world through our senses. Or we can remove ourselves from our senses and experience the world even less directly. We can think about our life, rather than thinking in our life. We can think about what we think about our life, and we can think about what we think about that. We can shift perceptual positions many times over.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our knowledge is the amassed thought and experience of innumerable minds.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Condense some daily experience into a glowing symbol and an audience is electrified.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
War is delightful to those who have had no experience of it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wisdom is meaningless until our own experience has given it meaning.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My own experience has been that the tools I need for my trade are paper, tobacco, food, and a little whisky.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I had a lot of experience with people smarter than I am.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have found little that is good about human beings on the whole. In my experience most of them are trash, no matter whether they publicly subscribe to this or that ethical doctrine or to none at all. That is something that you cannot say aloud, or perhaps even think.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
