We’re so mixed up about religion in this culture. We say the Pledge of Allegiance, ‘under God indivisible,’ but there’s no prayer in the schools. I would be so untethered without my personal faith. I wouldn’t be able to go through a day – but that’s my own experience.
Virginia Euwer Wolff
Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal.
There’s simply no substitute for experience in terms of aviation safety.

If I wanted to play soccer, I’d step out on that soccer field like I’m the best soccer player. Even though I don’t have that much experience, I always try to have that type of confidence in myself just to make people believe it.
Writing for ‘Rooster’ was a strange experience. It’s funny, once you tap into a voice, words just start to flow. You know when you’ve hit a spirit or captured something.
I think it’s been hard for people to understand how Islam can be a good religion, and yet the Islamists are evil. Those of us who have had experience with Islam understand this, just as we understand the difference between snake handlers and people going to church on Sunday morning.
P. J. O’Rourke
When I work, I’m thinking in terms of purely visual effects and relations, and any verbal equivalent is something that comes afterwards. But it’s inconceivable to me that I could experience things and not have them enter into my painting.

Peter A. Levine
I was thinking that we all learn by experience, but some of us have to go to summer school.

R. Buckminster Fuller

Adventure is worthwhile.
The best compliment we ever got about the show was from a Korean veteran who was unable to talk about his war experience with his wife until ‘M*A*S*H.’ While watching the show, he was able to lean over to his wife and say, ‘See, honey, that’s the way it was.’
I’ve been doing a lot of work on female rights, especially adolescent rights. I’ve been to a lot of schools where the UNICEF had set up villages in India, and it’s an eye-opening experience.

W. H. Auden
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
I think what we’re attracted to on the page is something that is very difficult to do in life, which is to examine in what seems like a moment. To examine what we can’t do in life very well, which is to be as present and accountable to what an experience is. That’s why life is short and art is very long.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.
We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.

If you are lucky enough to never experience any sort of adversity, we won’t know how resilient you are. It’s only when you’re faced with obstacles, stress, and other environmental threats that resilience, or the lack of it, emerges: Do you succumb or do you surmount?
The neurologist calls it ‘Non-REM parasomnia’. For the sufferer, it might mean rising in the middle of the night, getting your motorbike out, going for a ride, and waking in the morning with no memory of the experience.
As human beings, we are vulnerable to confusing the unprecedented with the improbable.

There are some hurts that we experience that can be forgiven but we won’t forget them.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Mum wasn’t at all religious, but she thought that going to the theatre was as important a ceremonial, communal experience that a person could have.
Romantic love can be terrifying. We experience another human being as enormously important to us. So there is surrender – not a surrender to the other person so much as to our feeling for the other person. What is the obstacle? The possibility of loss.
It is important to express oneself… provided the feelings are real and are taken from your own experience.
You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.
You can make people feel valued or cared for by design alone. It’s not purely about money. It’s about how we choose to value human experience.

In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.
Give, give, give – what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don’t give it away? Of having stories if I don’t tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don’t share it? I don’t intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine.
History and experience tell us that moral progress comes not in comfortable and complacent times, but out of trial and confusion.
Gerald R. Ford

Life is full of change and uncertainty. We know this. We experience it on a daily basis.
When life is good and we have no problems, we can almost let ourselves believe we have no need for God. But in my experience, sometimes the richest blessings come through pain and hard things.
Anne Graham Lotz
If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.

Experience acquired in the heroic battle against Batista’s tyranny showed that the enemy, no matter what his strength, could not defeat the Cuban people.
The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages is preserved into perpetuity by a nation’s proverbs, fables, folk sayings and quotations.

Perception often lags behind reality, and I can say from experience that the vast majority of public officials in Louisiana are much better than our reputation holds us to be.
One thorn of experience is worth a whole wilderness of warning.
James Russell Lowell
In real life we don’t know what’s going to happen next. So how can you be that way on a stage? Being alive to the possibility of not knowing exactly how everything is going to happen next – if you can find places to have that happen onstage, it can resonate with an experience of living.
The experience of using a Rolleiflex camera is very different than using a SLR.
Sometimes you are lucky, sometimes you’re unlucky. It all weighs out at the end. That is my experience at least.
I think that what’s bizarre to me about life is that sometimes you have to have everything taken away before you experience grace or before you actually recognize that grace can happen to you.
Min Jin Lee
I maybe had a first love and had my heart broken, but reflecting on it, I don’t think that was love. I think as I’m getting older and having more in-depth relationships, maybe I’ll experience it. At the moment, I don’t know, exactly, if I’ve been in love.

I didn’t think; I experimented.
My experience in Iraq made me realize, and during the recovery, that I could have died. And I just had to do more with my life.
Our DNA is as a consumer company – for that individual customer who’s voting thumbs up or thumbs down. That’s who we think about. And we think that our job is to take responsibility for the complete user experience. And if it’s not up to par, it’s our fault, plain and simply.
Anyone can be a DJ but it’s understanding how to read a crowd and keeping them on the floor is what takes years of experience.
Creativity is an energy. It’s a precious energy, and it’s something to be protected. A lot of people take for granted that they’re a creative person, but I know from experience, feeling it in myself, it is a magic; it is an energy. And it can’t be taken for granted.
Intersectionality draws attention to invisibilities that exist in feminism, in anti-racism, in class politics, so, obviously, it takes a lot of work to consistently challenge ourselves to be attentive to aspects of power that we don’t ourselves experience.
Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
If you think of human experience as a pie, then the wedge Hollywood is reflecting now is getting smaller and smaller.

I started out really young, when I was four, five, six, writing poems, before I could play an instrument. I was writing about things when I was eight or 10 years old that I hadn’t lived long enough to experience. That’s why I also believe in reincarnation, that we were put here with ideas to pass around.
I’ve learnt so much over time and with the experience that I’ve gained. You can’t please everyone.
Literature transmits incontrovertible condensed experience… from generation to generation. In this way literature becomes the living memory of a nation.

The first core value we have is that everyone deserves a Cinderella experience. And I have experienced a Cinderella experience. And I really believe that most people who’ve come to Rent the Runway have had a Cinderella experience.

Rita Mae Brown
Japan is the most intoxicating place for me. In Kyoto, there’s an inn called the Tawaraya which is quite extraordinary. The Japanese culture fascinates me: the food, the dress, the manners and the traditions. It’s the travel experience that has moved me the most.
While I will always have the utmost respect for the superhuman out-of-bounds freestyle and extreme stunts that seem to continually progress beyond our imaginable limits, my highest appreciation goes out to the simple rider who’s out there just for the experience.

An identity would seem to be arrived at by the way in which the person faces and uses his experience.

Experience is the child of thought, and thought is the child of action.
Every outing is a learning experience.

Experience teaches slowly, and at the cost of mistakes.
James Anthony Froude

Deep experience is never peaceful.
I got to experience soccer at the highest level at a young age; I decided I wanted to be part of that for as long as possible.
Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.

In times of rapid change, experience could be your worst enemy.
J. Paul Getty

Your life will be a blessed and balanced experience if you first honor your identity and priority.
Russell M. Nelson
For an average noun or an average verb, an average mind can quickly create reference. Where did they hear it? See it? What does it remind them of? What is its connection?

If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.

When I moved to Minnesota, I found there was a thriving and determined movement, a grassroots movement, to revitalize the Ojibwe language. And I’ve never come to be a competent speaker. I have to say that right now. But even learning the amount of Ojibwe that one can at my age is a life-altering experience.
A leader who confines his role to his people’s experience dooms himself to stagnation; a leader who outstrips his people’s experience runs the risk of not being understood.
In my experience, poor people are the world’s greatest entrepreneurs. Every day, they must innovate in order to survive. They remain poor because they do not have the opportunities to turn their creativity into sustainable income.

Food is not just eating energy. It’s an experience.
I’m not there to tailor the role to me: I’m there to tailor me to the role. That guarantees me something, a precious thing, which is creativity. I’m guaranteed that I will have a creative experience, because I will go to it, not demand that it comes to me.
I don’t know about changing my perspective, because motherhood is such a glorious blessing and I am very thankful for that. It’s such a beautiful experience. I so strongly recommend it. It’s bliss, love and fulfillment of another level.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you’re involved in, whether it’s a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.
I think experience will teach you a combination of liberalism and conservatism. We have to be progressive and at the same time we have to retain values. We have to hold onto the past as we explore the future.

I – my experience was really no different from any other immigrant that came to this country. It was rough.
