“EXPERIENCE is, for me, the highest authority. The touchstone of validity is my own experience. No other person’s ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience. It is to experience that I must return again and again, to discover a closer approximation to truth as it is in the process of becoming in me.” – Carl Rogers, “On becoming a Person”.
Dr. Carl R. Rogers, psychologist. January 08, 1902 – February 04, 1987. http://www.mythosandlogos.com/Rogers.html
“Pure logical thinking cannot yield us any knowledge of the empirical world; all knowledge of reality starts from experience and ends in it.”
