experience

Experience is a brutal teacher, but you learn fast.

William Nicholson (screenwriter), “Shadowlands” (stage play) (1985)

This script was later adapted into a screenplay for a movie starring Anthony Hopkins, and the line was then changed slightly. It is often attributed to C.S. Lewis and quoted as:

Experience is a brutal teacher. But you learn. My God, you learn.
