A Quote by Toyohiko Kagawa on jesus, failure, food, bread, nourishment, wisdom, civilization, life, social, and mistakes

Not everything in man's life is summed up in the problem of food. Anyone who thinks that a civilization can be founded on bread alone makes a great mistake. No matter how much bread there is, it cannot produce a man: it can only nourish him. Life exists before food. Man's life comes from the very origin of life. Therefore civilization does not follow the forms of production. All social life follows the action of life.

A Quote by Ellen DeGeneres on competence, idiot, cool, doofus, and mistakes

We all feel like idiots at one time or another. Even if we feel we're cool 98 percent of the time, that 2-percent doofus is poised to take over our bodies without any warning.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on mistakes, errors, blunders, absurdities, forgiveness, and serenity

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Samuel Smiles on wisdom, mistakes, and failures

We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success; we often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on mistakes and second chance

Every second a seeker can start over,
For his life’s mistakes
Are initial drafts
And not the final version.

A Quote by Michael Franti on thankful, love, mistakes, judging, heart, and spirit

Don't let mistakes be so monumental, don't let your love be so confidential, don't let your mind be so darn judgemental, and please let your heart be more influential. Be thankful for all that the spirit provides and be thankful for all that you see without eyes.
