Experience is the key to understanding of life.


Waren read my yesterday's title, "My children are always babies to me". Out of concern, he sent me an early message this morning, "Don't worry Mr Robert, he would be fine. Timing". I replied him, "But you are not married yet to understand our feeling". He confirmed, "You are right. That's true! My mum may have the same concern and feeling as you too. :)".

I am sure Waren who is still single would never understand the 'love and concern' over their children, until one fine day when he is married and has kids around. Is like, if one has never eaten the king of fruit, durian....don't try to describe its taste. Though durian has a stinking smell, it tastes wonderfully. You have to try once to experience this exotic fruit.

More facts of life... Don't try to describe the feeling of love, if you had not ever fallen in love. Its easy to assume but to relate the actual feeling of the pleasure and pain out of love is difficult. Similarly if you had not experienced the magic of sex, don't try to imagine the penetration because the pleasurable pain is indescribable. Also...don't try to think Lovesick is curable, until you could have a chance to fall sick with it once.

For my fellow colleagues in the life insurance industry... don't try to teach and train another agents to sell, when you had never sold life insurance before. Don't try to inspire another agents to excel and perform well in sales, when you had never done well before in selling.

Experience is the key to understanding of life. I believe this quote - "There are many truths of which the full meaning cannot be realized until personal experience has brought it home." - John Stuart Mill

I completely agree with John Stuart Mill's quote. I have never been in love and sometimes I get angry with my friends because of the love that they share with their significant other. I know it is really love, but to me it looks like pathetic infatuation and I cannot comprehend. I know one day I will understand though.
Take care,
Lauren

Hi LMc my dear,

You are getting sweeter and smarter each day, and i am sure your true love would appear. A quote specially for you..."A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life, to be thankful for a good one".
