The trouble with learning from experience is that you get the test before the lesson.

if you've studied a lot of things and had varied experiences you can often get through quite a bit of what comes next, and, then, well, if you don't... you won't... :/

The diploma issued by the School of Hard Knocks, is that you survive the final exam.
No, it's getting to take the next one, By definition, the exams at the School of Hard Knocks keep coming until you get to the one you DON'T survive.

It's like how the phrase "unbearable pain" doesn't mean much. If it was really unbearable, it would kill you. If you survive, you bore it, so it was bearable.

actually people have been known to pass out from pain, but still live through it. when i broke my shoulder blade i went to pick up the motorcycle and nearly fainted so i stopped.
