experience

A Quote by Werner Erhard on truth, reality, experience, understanding, and booby prize

Man keeps looking for a truth that fits his reality.
Given our reality, the truth doesn't fit.
If you experience it, it's the truth.
The same thing believed is a lie.
In life, understanding is the booby prize.

Werner Erhard

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on imagination, myth, dreams, hope, laughter, love, knowledge, history, facts, experience, grief, and death

I believe imagination is stronger than knowledge - that myth is more potent than history.  I believe that dreams are more powerful than facts - That hope always triumphs over experience - That laughter is the only cure for grief.  And I believe that love is stronger than death.

Robert Fulghum (1937 -)

A Quote by Niccoló Machiavelli on difficult, doubtful, success, dangerous, initiate, new order, reformer, enemies, profit, old order, defenders, fear, adversaries, laws, incredulity, mankind, believe, and experience

There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things.  For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order, this lukewarmness arising partly from fear of their adversaries, who have the laws in their favour; and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had the actual experience of it.

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469 - 1527)

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, definitions, descriptions, opinions, experience, knowledge, knowing, know, loving, living, life, questioning, question, belief, attachment, emotional, emotions, feelings, spirit, and joy

There are those who will dismiss love as a naïve and romantic construct of our culture. Others will wax poetic and tell you that “love is all,””love is the bird call and the glint in a young girl’s eyes on a summer night.” Some will be dogmatic and tell you emphatically that “God is Love.” And some, according to their own experience, will tell us, “Love is a strong emotional attachment to another…”etc. In some cases you will find that people have never thought of questioning love, much less defining it, and object violently even to the suggestion that they think about it. To them love is not to be pondered, it is simply to be experienced. It is true to some degree all of these statements are correct, but to assume that any one is best or all there is to love, is rather simple. So each man lives love in his limited fashion and does not seem to relate the resultant confusion and loneliness to this lack of knowledge about love.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, definitions, descriptions, opinions, experience, knowledge, knowing, know, loving, living, life, questioning, question, belief, attachment, emotional, emotions, feelings, spirit, and joy

In discussing love, it would be well to consider the following premises;

One cannot give what he does not possess. Too give love you must possess love.
One cannot teach what he does not understand. To teach love, you must comprehend love.
One cannot know what he does not study. To study love, you must live in love.
One cannot appreciate what he does not recognize. To recognize love you must be receptive to love.
One cannot have doubt about that which he wishes to trust. To trust love you must be convinced of love.
One cannot admit what he does not yield to. To yield to love you must be vulnerable to love.
One cannot live what he does not dedicate himself to. To dedicate yourself to love you must be forever growing in love.
