2,346.  No mistake is more common and more fatuous than appealing to logic in cases which are beyond her jurisdiction.  (Logic & Mistake)  Samuel Butler

 

 

2,407.  The history of science, like the history of all human ideas, is a history of irresponsible dreams, of obstinacy, and of error.  But science is one of the very few human activities – perhaps the only one – in which errors are systematically criticized and fairly often, in time, corrected.  This is why we can say that, in science, we often learn from our mistakes, and why we can speak clearly and sensibly about making progress there.  (Science & Errors & Mistakes & Progress)  Karl Popper, Conjectures and Refutations

10,340.  I tell you, if one wants to be active, one must not be afraid of going wrong, one must not be afraid of making mistakes now and then.  Many people think that they will become good just by doing no harm – but that's a lie, and you yourself used to call it that.  That way lies stagnation, mediocrity.  (Artist: van Gogh & Mistakes)  Vincent van Gogh, letter to Theo October 1884

 

 

21,953.  There is a natural bureaucratic tendency to cover up mistakes.  (GBH Films & Assassination & Mistake)  The Parallax View 1974 starring Warren Beatty & Paula Prentiss & Hume Cronyn & William Daniels & Walter McGinn & Kelly Thorsden & Chuck Waters & William Joyce & Bettie Johnson et al, director Alan J Pakula, Beatty to boss

45,712.  Drama is based on the Mistake.  (Drama & Mistake)  W H Auden, The Complete Works of W H Auden: Prose III

 

 

46,478.  Do not fear mistakes: there are none.  (Jazz & Mistake)  Miles Davis

 

 

46,442.  If you don’t make mistakes, you aren’t really playing.  (Jazz & Mistake)  Coleman Hawkins

 

 

47,788.  Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes.  (Wisdom & Common Sense & Mistakes)  Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

58,618.  Among all forms of mistake, prophecy is the most gratuitous.  (Prophecy & Mistake)  George Eliot, Middlemarch

 

 

65,669.  But let the wise be warned against too great readiness at explanation: it multiplies the sources of mistake, lengthening the sum for reckoners sure to go wrong.  (Brevity & Wisdom & Explanation & Mistake)  George Eliot, Middlemarch

 

 

58,961.  In general, pride is at the bottom of all great mistakes.  (Pride & Mistake)  John Ruskin

 

 

58,965.  All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil.  The only crime is pride.  (Pride & Mistake)  Sophocles, Antigone
