Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.

Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

Lady Windermere’s Fan (1892), Mr. Dumby, Act III

Meaning: Fail again, fail better. Experience can be gained from both mistakes and sucesses. The secret to the mistakes is learning from them so we don’t make those again.
