"Do not fear mistakes — there are none."
1926 - 1991
The older I have become; the more I subscribe to this philosophy. Mistakes are in the minds of those who need to find fault. When I write something, it is not a mistake. It is where my mind wanted to go — where I am meant to go. Perfection is an illusion. It does not exist and if it did we would invent mistakes. The world is not black or white. It is all gray. As a painter, you used a green paint when convention says you should have used red. It is not a mistake. Learn to give your mind free rein — to explore and change the universe. We are where we are because it is where we need to be. Things happen for a reason even if we don't know what the reason is. So go ahead and make mistakes today. Taste the favor of them in your mouth and be happy.
