EXPERIENCE – THE GREATEST TEACHER IN LIFE

It is true that we learn from our experience.  Every experience teaches us something valuable. 

A child never expected that he could win an art competition, but when he did, he was elated.  He would have then learnt, never to think low of himself.

One night I was watching a horror movie.  My parents tried to stop me but their advice fell on deaf ears. As I continued, a chill ran down my spine and I turned pale.  I ran to bed.  I started getting nightmares, tossed and turned and woke up literally frozen.  This experience surely taught me that I must never watch horror movies at night and obey my parents.

A teacher in school plays an important role in our life.  She teaches us according to curriculum.  We come home, revise our work and start feeling that we know everything.  But until we go through an exam, it cannot be judged how much we have understood.

I love food and an interesting recipe of a scrumptious dish always fascinates me.  But only after I have tasted it, can I tell whether it is as delicious as it sounded.

Looking at the experiences I have narrated, few of them my own, I truly believe Experience is the Greatest Teacher.  We must learn from it and keep as our future guide.
