Experience, they say is the best form of learning. Only an ignorant man would argue otherwise. If you’ve never been through what a man has, don’t think you know better. A lot of us are quick to delve into matters we have little or no idea about cause we want to prove a point or be heard.

In the final analysis, don’t just know it, have a feel of it. Knowing is just a guideline but experience is the rule itself.
