A Quote by Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins on experience, learning, life, understanding, and wisdom

In the deep, unwritten wisdom of life there are many things to be learned that cannot be taught. We never know them by hearing them spoken, but we grow into them by experience and recognize them through understanding. Understanding is a great experience in itself, but it does not come through instruction.
