    are there other sayings ~


    we'r doin some kind of rhetoric practise...we needs to write 2 tropes of how we feel after we challenge sth. difficulty and failed... my friend and I thought we should treasure the experience even if we failed... so we came up with one "I treasure my experience as a veteran treasure his scar from the war".. and we couldn't think of anything else

    can anybody help to think of a saying ( trope)? thnx a lot

    You read about somebody describing his experiences during the war. Is that close?

    Your saying (revised by me):
    I treasure my experiences as a war veteran treasures his wounds.
    Also (possibly):
    I am sadder but wiser for having gone through it.
    Is that the idea?
