Life Experiences Shape Your Career Mark Twain Quote
Mark Twain Experience Quote

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it – and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again – and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore. Mark Twain
