If any man err from the right way, it is his own misfortune, no injury to thee; nor therefore art thou to punish him in the things of this life because thou supposest he will be miserable in that which is to come.
It is part of human nature always to judge others very severely and, when the wind turns against us, always to find an excuse for our own misdeeds, or to blame someone else for our mistakes.[Faz parte da natureza humana sempre julgar os outros com muita severidade, e, quando o vento sopra contra nossos anseios, sempre encontrar uma desculpa pelo mal que fizemos, ou blasfemar contra o próximo por nossas falhas.]
All humans make mistakes. What determines a person’s character aren’t the mistakes we make. It’s how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.[Quando alguém encontra o seu caminho, não pode ter medo. Precisa de ter coragem suficiente para dar passos errados. As decepções, as derrotas, o desãnimo, são ferramentas que Deus utiliza para mostrar a estrada.]
We had yet to learn that the Devil created youth so that we could make our mistakes, and that God established maturity and old age so that we could pay for them…
The only mistake that a man invested with authority and power cannot make even once in his lifetime is to issue an order which he is not sure will be carried out.[El único error que no puede cometer ni una sola vez en toda su vida un hombre investido de autoridad y mando es impartir una orden que no esté seguro de que será cumplida.]
