A Quote by Truman Madsen on accidents, day, errors, forgiveness, husbands, jesus, mistakes, and wives

A man and his wife, each in a different small plane, were out enjoying a flight, when the husband committed a flight error. He was able to recover, but his wife who was following him, crashed and was killed. The husband was distraught, blaming himself for the accident. One day when pleading with the Lord for forgiveness, he heard a voice saying "Jesus died, even for dumb mistakes."

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on forgiveness, men, mistakes, thought, and trouble

Point out to the men working with you and around you that we forgive thoughtful mistakes - that it is only the thoughtless mistakes that cause trouble. Tell them first to be sure they have thought about each proposition, then to go ahead.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on company, employees, experience, justice, and mistakes

Recently, I was asked if I was going to fire an employee who made a mistake that cost the company $600,000. No, I replied, I just spent $600,000 training him. Why would I want somebody to hire his experience?

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on boldness, common sense, country, failure, mistakes, needs, and temper

The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent, experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it, if it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

The only thing I regret about my past is the length of it. If I had to live my life again, I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner.

A Quote by Sydney J. Harris on children, good, judgment, knowledge, learning, mistakes, parenthood, and teachers

Parents - and teachers too - are woefully short-sighted when they try to protect the child from his mistakes, when they make the "right answer" more important than the quest for knowledge and good judgment. For what is not learned within one's self cannot be learned from another.
