Learn all you can from the mistakes of others.  You won't have time to make them all yourself.
Alfred Sheinwold
Experience is the teacher of all things.
Julius Caesar
Experience is a comb which nature gives us when we are bald.
Belgian Proverb
We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.
Samuel Smiles
Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.
Vern Law
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience

Ethel Barrymore
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. 
Mark Twain
Experience comprises illusions lost, rather than wisdom gained.
Joseph Roux

Auguste Rodin
If you will call your troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be. 
James Russell Miller
Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later a collection of mistakes is what is called experience.
Denis Waitley
Only so much do I know, as I have lived.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A man's errors are his portals of discovery.
James Joyce
Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.
John W. Gardner
Experience is how life catches up with us and teaches us to love and forgive each other.
