Orange Juice

Our greatest understanding comes not from books, but from teachers and the days that we have lived. Books are like the glass of orange juice on the table. If you have never drank it, all the books in the world that tell how delicious or sweet or sour it is cannot substitute for the experience of drinking it. To experience is to know. That is real learning. Some experiences may be difficult, but they can be of the greatest value. How can the young bird know the joy of flying without leaving the nest?
