Quote of the Night

"Ein chacham ke'ba'al hanisayon.*" - Mili De'Avot, on Avot tractate. By Rabbi Yitzchak (Rabbi Itzeleh) Volozhin Rosh Yeshiva. Vilna (1888)

* No-one is as wise as a person who has acquired wisdom from experience**.

** This is an example of a saying that sounds like it's from Pirkei Avot, or Chazal somewhere, but it's actually much later and more obscure.

There are many such quotes.

Can you think of others?
