Heard something today that made me think of what you wrote here Elise.  What I heard was:

"Words don't teach.  You have to have your own personal experience in order to have that knowledge".


I think this is very important so I highlighted it.

Thank you SG for posting it.

Certainly true for me - but I suppose we should qualify that a bit - some people DO learn aurally and I don't want to speak for them.

"Personal Experience" doesn't necessarily mean a physical experience.

Ah, good point.  I certainly did assume that.

I think most people think of "experience" as a physical act.

This is what the Webster's say about "experience":

Experience = Apprehension or perception of an object, thought, emotion, or event through the senses or mind.

It does continue with other definitions after that but this one incorporate what I was looking for.
