All men, no matter how big, make mistakes. But history teaches us that big men refuse to falter because of their mistakes.
Henry Ford forgot to put a reverse gear in his first automobile.
Edison once spent over two million dollars on an invention which proved of little value.
The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness & the spirit of adventure. He is the one who never tries anything new; he is the brake on the wheels of progress.
Remember, a mistake becomes an error only when nothing is done to correct it.

Js 3:2 (CEB): “We all make mistakes often, but those who don’t make mistakes with their words have reached full maturity. Like a bridled horse, they can control themselves entirely.”
“A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.” - John C. Maxwell.
