Get This Quote.

Here are my strong reservations about the wave of computer networks. They isolate us from one another and cheapen the meaning of actual experience. They work against literacy and creativity. They undercut our schools and libraries.

Get This Quote.

Ornette Coleman

Get This Quote.

I don't rehearse films as much as opera or theatre. When I began directing films I thought a long rehearsal was a good idea. Experience showed me that the best performance was often left in a rehearsal room.

Get This Quote.

It has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity.
Alexander Hamilton

Get This Quote.

It is an axiom, enforced by all the experience of the ages, that they who rule industrially will rule politically.

It is convenient to distinguish the two kinds of experience which have thus been described, the experienc-ing and the experienc-ed, by technical words.
Samuel Alexander

Get This Quote.

It is important that we are coming up on the millennium because what I am experiencing, just being one person out of billions, is the feeling of acceleration. I experience this through my contact with other people.
Terry Riley

Get This Quote.

It takes a lot of experience of life to see why some relationships last and others do not. But we do not have to wait for a crisis to get an idea of the future of a particular relationship. Our behavior in little every incidents tells us a great deal.
Eknath Easwaran

Get This Quote.

John Sexton

Get This Quote.

It was the experience of mystery - even if mixed with fear - that engendered religion.

Get This Quote.

Tish Grier

Get This Quote.

Wil Wheaton

Get This Quote.

William Styron

Get This Quote.

Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is too deep, going too deep in the blood and soul, for mental explanation or description.
David Herbert Lawrence

Hermann Ebbinghaus

Get This Quote.

One of the best things in the world to be is a boy; it requires no experience, but needs some practice to be a good one.
Charles Dudley Warner

Get This Quote.

People talked to me in a way I think they would not have talked to somebody who hadn't shared the experience; they gave me their papers, they gave me their diaries. I found people constantly opening up to me. And I think they did because I had shared that experience with them.
Neil Sheehan

Get This Quote.
