Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.

Martin H. Fischer
No physician is really good before he has killed one or two patients.
All experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world whose margin fades for ever and for ever when I move.

James Russell Miller
