The only source of knowledge is experience.
: Albert Einstein
Sometimes, I wonder why are we given this life to live. To do what? After all, we leave this world at a certain point of time. We come with nothing in our hands and go with nothing left. Well, the only answer I find is that we are given this life to experience and learn. Once, we leave the world, there is no use of the experience gained. But, that’s not the case. We leave behind all our encounters and ordeals that help other people to comprehend their lives better and pursue their goals. Indirectly, we help other people to mitigate their lives.
All experience is an arch, to build upon.
: Henry Adams
Our lives are what we make of it and it is the mirror image of what we do. Our experience gained and what it teaches us depends on how we see our lives. Whether, we see it as a great opportunity to do something or just as a mere concept of science. Whatever we do, we gain experience that ultimately edifies and indoctrinates us to do better next time. After making every move and taking every step, we learn something and gain experience. That step, that move gets us closer to success.
A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.
: Mark Twain
After all, we live to learn something from our mistakes and experiences!
