A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't.

Pete Seeger

Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again.

Andre Gide

If we could sell our experiences for what they cost us, we'd all be millionaires.
