We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.
Samuel Smiles quotes
Beauty is in the ideal of perfect harmony which is in the universal being; truth the perfect comprehension of the universal mind. We individuals approach it through our own mistakes and blunders, through our accumulated experience, through our illumined consciousness - how, otherwise, can we know truth?
Rabindranath Tagore quotes
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
Elbert Hubbard quotes
A good friend who points out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals a secret of hidden treasure.
The mistakes made by doctors are innumerable. They err habitually on the side of optimism as to treatment, of pessimism as to the outcome.
Marcel Proust quotes
The greatest mistake we make is living in constant fear that we will make one.
John Maxwell quotes
In all the work we do, our most valuable asset can be the attitude of self-examination. It is forgivable to make mistakes, but to stand fast behind a wall of self-righteousness and make the same mistake twice is not forgivable.
Dale E. Turner quotes
Experience is that marvellous thing that enable you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
Franklin P. Jones quotes
It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.
Albert Einstein quotes
But after all I find in my work an echo of what struck me. I see that nature has told me something, has spoken to me, and that I have put it down in shorthand. In my shorthand there may be words that cannot be deciphered. There may be mistakes or gaps, but there is something in it of what wood or beech or figure has told me, and it is not a tame or conventional language, that proceeds not from nature itself but from a studied manner or a system.
Vincent Van Gogh quotes
