Bland: Malo accepto stultus sapit.

· Stultus · Foolish ·
Malo accepto stultus sapit.

(Having had something bad happen, the fool grows wise.)
Experience is the mistress of fools.

Bland's Commentary:
"Experience is the mistress of fools," and "the burnt child," we say, "dreads the fire." Some men are only to be made cautious by their own experience, they must suffer before they will be wary.
