There is no experience

 from which you can’t learn something.

When you stop learning

you stop living

in any vital and meaningful sense.

And the purpose of life, after all,

is to live it,

to taste experience to the utmost,

to reach out eagerly and without fear

for newer and richer experience.

You can do that only if you have curiosity,

an unquenchable spirit of adventure…”
