“Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, and the lesson afterwards.”
There are many ways we can learn in life – from books, teachers, friends, experiences, TV, newspapers, etc. The best teacher of all is life itself. This is why as we get older, we realize that we know so very little about life, but when we are young we think we know so much. As I grow older and experience life in a new country (China), I become more humbled by life because I see it in a way that I never would or could before when I was living in America.
