There was once a young boy,

Who was playing with his toys,

He seemed happy, but was at unease because of a bother.

So he asked a question of his mother

“Who is the greatsest teacher of all?” asked he,

His mother replied, smiling gently.

“Experience is the greatest teacher of all, my dear

It teaches you through laughter and tears

It teaches what no other teacher can teach

It teaches you to practice what you preach

Whenever we are standing at crossroads,

Experience takes away some of the load.”

She however warned her son,

Experience is a hard teacher because it gives us the lesson first

And the lesson afterwards.
