I think the most important thing that I've learned is that you live and you learn. Try not to make the same mistakes twice.
I just did in my early twenties what most did when they were teenagers, being free and exploring and making mistakes, but I did it in France. I did it privately.
I think sci-fi films have become rather bleak, and understandably so - I think we've made some big mistakes globally with how we're developing, and we deal with that guilt by creating these very dystopian futures in films.
Do I make fashion mistakes? Yes, but I won't say what.
A lot of time mistakes are very interesting - you look for the behaviour that's not the one you expect.
Very rarely do you have a perfect race, and it's about overcoming your mistakes in the race and remaining composed.
Wont to unlearn from history, we aptly repeat even its most brazen mistakes.
I'm not perfect. I've made mistakes. I'd do a lot of things different if I could. I'd never, ever, get involved with surrogacy again. It's so weird.
Mary Beth Whitehead
One of the most lethal mistakes a public official can make is raising taxes and not paying your own.
If you don't make mistakes, you aren't really trying.
I love Prince Harry. Good looking and a bit of a rebel. Me and his dad are as thick as thieves and I knew Harry before I knew his dad so we've met a few times. I think he's amazing. And I think you can relate to him because he's made mistakes. He's cool.
I've been doing a lot of learning from mistakes, first and foremost, and building off that.

If both John McCain and Obama were given a sip of truth serum, both would admit they made serious mistakes in choosing running mates in 2008.
The most cowardly thing in the world is blaming mistakes upon the umpires. Too many managers strut around on the field trying to manage the umpires instead of their teams.
One of the things I learned in the military is sometimes you don't know what mistakes you make for a long time. But as you go through a campaign, there's lots of decision points you make, and you don't know whether those are gonna be the right decision points or not.

People expect that I'll be just perfect on ice, and that's not the case. I make mistakes, too. When I review my performance, sometimes I feel I did awful. That's the whole part of the process of what people see when I'm performing.
I don't have many regrets. I regret mistakes, particularly those that damage other people, and we've all made some of those. But I'm not sad about change.
You learn by mistakes. When you make those mistakes, you try not to make them the third time or the second time. You learn from them. Sometimes you learn the hard way. In football, if I held on to the ball too long, I got my butt kicked. You better make that decision quicker.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
