Experience is not what happens to a man it is what a man does with what happens to him

Experience is not what happens to a man it is what a man does with what happens to him
Report More From: Life

"... experience is not a matter of having actually swum the Hellespont, or danced with the dervishes, or slept in a doss-house. It is a matter of sensibility and intuition, of seeing and hearing the significant things, of paying attention at the right moments, of understanding and co-ordinating. Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him. It is a gift for dealing with the accidents of existence, not the accidents themselves." -Aldous Huxley
