Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854 – 1900)
Irish playwright, poet and author of essays and novels.
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.
