Quotable Sunday!

Time for another edition of Toni's quotable Sunday. So your own quotes of the day and head on over to Toni's site and sign her Mr. Linky and visit as many other participants as you can! Find Toni HERE

My quotes today are on Mistakes... we all make them. If you learn from your mistakes, then making the mistake was worth it, if you don't learn... then you have wasted an opportunity to grow.

"Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from."
Al Franken, "Oh, the Things I Know", 2002


"Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life."
Sophia Loren (1934 - )


“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
Albert Einstein


“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.”
John Powell quotes


"A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them."
John C. Maxwell


"Mistakes are the portals of discovery."
James Joyce



"You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm." ~Colette

"I tell you: you must not be afraid of making mistakes. People think they will become good by doing no harm, but that's a lie. Such a frame of mind leads to stagnation and mediocrity."
Vincent Van Gogh


"More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren't so busy denying them." Harold J. Smith

AMEN!!!

Great topic and quotes!! It's nice to be reminded that everyone makes mistakes...and that they should be looked at as learning opportunities!

Kim @ What's That Smell? said...

Those are great!

I'm amazed at how much easier life is when you just admit you made a mistake and learn from it and move on instead of trying to hide it or save face.

I like the EInstein quote. I can't decide if it's the fact that I share the sentiment (I do, I really do) or if I'm just in love with the idea of comparing my thoughts to those of Einstein... :)

I actually think I like the quote you made at the end of your post more than the other quotes!! It's so true that if you haven't learned from your mistakes, then you've wasted your time! SOOO true!!
