A Quote by Aleister Crowley on change, death, eternity, exercise, experience, growth, idealism, joy, life, mankind, and mistakes

The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.

Aleister Crowley (1875 - 1947)

A Quote by Albert Einstein on civilization, contempt, mistakes, and music

He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

People who don't Think probably don't have Brains; rather, they have grey fluff that's blown into their heads by mistake.

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on bravery, circumstances, danger, delay, discipline, enemies, failure, fighting, friendship, impulses, mistakes, nations, victory, and work

Our cause, then, must be intrusted to, and conducted by, its own undoubted friends - those whose hands are free, whose hearts are in the work - who do care for the result. Two years ago the Republicans of the nation mustered over thirteen hundred thousand strong. We did this under the single impulse of resistance to a common danger, with every external circumstance against us. Of strange, discordant, and even, hostile elements, we gathered from the four winds, and formed and fought the battle through, under the constant hot fire of a disciplined, proud, and pampered enemy. Did we brave all then to falter now? - now when that same enemy is wavering, dissevered, and belligerent? The result is not doubtful. We shall not fail - if we stand firm, we shall not fail. Wise councils may accelerate or mistakes delay it, but, sooner or later, the victory is sure to come.

A Quote by Abraham H. Maslow on learning and mistakes

I have learned the novice can often see things that the expert overlooks. All that is necessary is not to be afraid of making mistakes, or of appearing naive.

A Quote by Drea on action, balance, body, brevity, chess, consequences, control, danger, effort, experience, intelligence, intuition, mistakes, mountains, pain, pleasure, responsibility, risk, silence, skill, world, and worth

The pleasure of risk is in the control needed to ride it with assurance so that what appears dangerous to the outsider is, to the participant, simply a matter of intelligence, skill, intuition, coordination - in a word, experience. Climbing, in particular, is a paradoxically intellectual pastime, but with this difference: you have to think with your body. Every move has to be worked out in terms of effort, balance and consequences. It is like playing chess with your body. If I make a mistake, the consequences are immediate, obvious, embarrassing and possibly painful. For a brief period, I am directly responsible for my actions. In that beautiful, silent world of the mountains, it seems to me worth a little risk.
