I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Paul J. Meyer

I have made mistakes but I have never made the mistake of claiming that I have never made one.
James Gordon Bennett

You can be discouraged by failure, or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes, make all you can. Because, remember that's where you'll find success - on the far side of failure.
Thomas J. Watson

So to admit that I'm extremely human and have done some dark things I don't think makes me unusual or unusually dark. I think it actually is the right thing to do, and I'd like to think it's the nice thing to do.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
