makes business mistakes. I mean, I take the responsibility, and I did. I was the
captain of the ship and I took that responsibility.
Bond - Mistakes
There is a spiritual side to our connection with the planet. And in this
material world, that's anathema. It is somewhat worrying. What I say.. it makes
life. It gives us fulfilment. It makes us whole human beings. And without it,
we make mistakes. And, boy, are the leaders of the world making mistakes at the
Brown - Life
The mistakes of the Iraq war are not only
tactical and strategic, but historical.
It is essentially a war of colonialism,
attempted in the post-colonial age.
Brzezinski - Geopolitics
As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment
of your goals and dreams, you must realize
that not every action will be perfect. Not
every action will produce the desired result.
Not every action will work. Making mistakes,
getting it almost right, and experimenting
to see what happens are all part of the
process of eventually getting it right.
Canfield - Improvement
There is a certain degree of satisfaction
in having the courage to admit one's errors.
It not only clears up the air of guilt and
defensiveness, but often helps solve the
problem created by the error.
Carnegie - Courage
A man goes to knowledge as he goes to war,
wide awake, with fear, with respect, and
with absolute assurance. Going to knowledge
or going to war in any other manner is a
mistake, and whoever makes it will live
to regret his steps.
Castaneda - Knowledge
Six mistakes mankind keeps making century
Believing that personal gain is made by
Worrying about things that cannot be changed
Insisting that a thing is impossible because
we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of
Attempting to compel others to believe and
live as we do.
Tullius Cicero - Mistakes
The two worst strategic mistakes to make
are acting prematurely and letting an opportunity
slip; to avoid this, the warrior treats
each situation as if it were unique and
never resorts to formulae, recipes or other
Coelho - Mistakes
You can't overestimate the need to plan
and prepare. In most of the mistakes I've
made, there has been this common theme of
inadequate planning beforehand. You really
can't over-prepare in business!
Corrigan - Planning
Studies have shown that 90% of error in
thinking is due to error in perception.
If you can change your perception, you can
change your emotion and this can lead to
de Bono - Thinking
The bottom line is that if I did it, you
can do it. I got rich without the benefit
of a college education or a penny of capital
but making many errors along the way. I
went from being a pauper.. a hippie dropout
on the dole, living in a crummy room without
the proverbial pot to piss in, without even
the money to pay the rent, without a clue
as to what to do next.. to being rich..
Dennis - Rich
Most discussions of decision making assume
that only senior executives make decisions
or that only senior executives' decisions
matter. This is a dangerous mistake.
Drucker - Decisions
I think one of the big errors people are
making right now is thinking that old-style
businesses will be obsolete, when actually
they will be an important part of this new
civilization. Some retail groups are introducing
e-commerce and think that the "bricks"
are no longer useful. But they will continue
to be important.
Slim Helu - Technology
Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving.
They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

without thought and the second is to not act at all.
Icahn - Business

Ireland - Learning
Only those who are asleep make no mistakes.
It is a mistake always to contemplate the good and ignore the evil, because
by making people neglectful it lets in disaster. There is a dangerous optimism
of ignorance and indifference.
Keller - Challenges
I not only could not stifle controversy
among your readers.. I welcome it. This
Administration intends to be candid about
its errors; for as a wise man once said:
"An error does not become a mistake
until you refuse to correct it." We
intend to accept full responsibility for
our errors; and we expect you to point them
out when we miss them.
F. Kennedy - Controversy
I do ask every publisher, every editor,
and every newsman in the nation to reexamine
his own standards, and to recognize the
nature of our country's peril. In time of
war, the government and the press have customarily
joined in an effort based largely on self-discipline,
to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the
enemy. In time of "clear and present
danger," the courts have held that
even the privileged rights of the First
Amendment must yield to the public's need
for national security.
F. Kennedy - USA
Amendment - News
Russia on its path has oftentimes discussed
and overdiscussed what had happened earlier,
instead of moving forward. The result is
always the same: It is very difficult to
move forward when you're looking backward.
Khodorkovsky - Goals
If I allow journalists to describe a collection
and they make mistakes, I'm upset, because
the retractions are never noticed.
Klein - Journalism
The trouble in America is not that we are
making too many mistakes, but that we are
making too few.
Knight - Mistakes
If you're a car salesman, and someone says
"This is a terrible car, I'm not buying
it," it doesn't mean they hate you.
They just don't like your product. I think
that's a mistake a lot of people in show
business make.. they're so tied to their
act they take everything personally.
Leno - Selling
I don't fear jail because I know I'm not guilty. I know I did nothing wrong.
I did nothing criminal and I also believe my God will get me through this.
Lay - Fear
I take responsibility for what happened at Enron, both good and bad. But
I cannot take responsibility for criminal conduct that I was unaware of.
Lay - Responsibility
I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause
and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause. I
shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors and I shall adopt new views
so fast as they shall appear to be true views.
Lincoln - Belief
I have learned the novice can often see things that the expert overlooks.
All that is necessary is not to be afraid of making mistakes, or of appearing
Maslow - Management
Forgetting your mistakes is a terrible error
if you are trying to improve your cognition.
Munger - Learning
Your best teacher is your last mistake.
Nader - Mistakes
Sometimes things work out on the golf course
and sometimes they don't. Life will go on.
You try to understand what happens, but
maybe today I don't want to know. I just
screwed up so maybe I should just put it
Norman - Golf
It's a mistake to think that poor people
get the benefit from the welfare system.
It's a total fraud. Most welfare go to the
rich of this country: the military-industrial
complex, the bankers, the foreign dictators,
it's totally out of control.
Paul - Mistake

I want people moving and shaking the earth
and they're going to make mistakes.

to find out how money really works, how
I could get control of it, and how I could
have confidence in handling it.
Ramsey - Poverty
Hiring people is an art, not a science,
and resumes can't tell you whether someone
will fit into a company's culture. When
you realize you've made a mistake, you need
to cut your losses and move on.
Schultz - Employee
The mistake made by all previous systems
of ethics has been the failure to recognize
that life as such is the mysterious value
with which they have to deal. All spiritual
life meets us within natural life. Reverence
for life, therefore, is applied to natural
life and spiritual life alike. In the parable
of Jesus, the shepherd saves not merely
the soul of the lost sheep but the whole
animal. The stronger the reverence for natural
life, the stronger grows also that for spiritual
Schweitzer - Spiritual
One cannot too soon forget his errors and
misdemeanors. To dwell long upon them is
to add to the offense.
David Thoreau - Mistakes
I've learned that mistakes can often be
as good a teacher as success.
Welch - Mistakes
Experience is the name everyone gives to
Wilde - Mistakes
