Errors Quotes

If you shut your door to all errors truth will be shut out.

Rabindranath Tagore

It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character.

Dale E. Turner

We ought not to look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dear bought experience.

George Washington

It is, of course, merely a truism to say that war, like other social or political evils, is the outcome of the bad management of human society, which is, in its turn, due to certain errors or deficiencies. But our task is to discern the sort of error or deficiency.

Sir Norman Angell

The logic now in use serves rather to fix and give stability to the errors which have their foundation in commonly received notions than to help the search for truth. So it does more harm than good.

Francis Bacon

The major flaw in the American justice system is that appeals focus only on procedural errors, and one's guilt or innocence is never again an issue after the original trial, even if that trial reached the wrong result.

F. Lee Bailey

Your heart is as fresh as your face; and that is well. The useless men are those who never change with the years. Many views that I held to in my youth and long afterwards are a pain to me now, and I am carrying away from Thrums memories of errors into which I fell at every stage of my ministry. When you are older you will know that life is a long lesson in humility.

Sir James Matthew Barrie

One of the pleasures of art is that it enables the mind to move in unanticipated directions, to make connections that may be in some sense errors but are fruitful nonetheless.

Donald Barthelme

The successful managers know that the best way for their people to learn and grow is through experience and that means taking chances and making errors.

Robert W. Bly

Nietzsche says that as soon as he had read a single page of Schopenhauer, he knew he would read every page of him and pay heed to every word, even to the errors he might find. Every intellectual aspirant will be able to name men whom he has read in this way.

Georg Morris Cohen Brandes

Most people like to believe something is or is not true. Great scientists tolerate ambiguity very well. They believe the theory enough to go ahead; they doubt it enough to notice the errors and faults so they can step forward and create the new replacement theory. If you believe too much you'll never notice the flaws; if you doubt too much you won't get started. It requires a lovely balance.

Richard Wesley Hamming
