: Did Albert Einstein once say "Education comes from experience, anything else is information.."

I'm not sure. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, which is quite comprehensive and has many quotations of Einstein's, doesn't list it.

Einstein did say that "If A is success then A = x + y +z. X is work, y is play and z is keeping your mouth shut."

So perhaps he thought it but didn't say it.
