A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.

It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link of the chain of destiny can be handled at a time.

“I never made a mistake in my life; at least, never one that I couldn't explain away afterwards.”

Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement.

A man who has committed a mistake and doesn't correct it, is committing another mistake.

If I understand change, I shall make no great mistake in life.

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.

If you make a mistake and do not correct it, this is called a mistake.

Mistakes are always forgiveable if one has the courage to admit them.
