I've made plenty of mistakes in the United States in the last 60 years in looking at businesses.
And sometimes I've misread the future about those businesses. And when I misread the future,
we're gonna lose money. And that's happened to me various times and it'll happen to me again
in the future.
So that - that's the big danger in any investment is that you look at the company now and
you get surprised about how the future of that company develops. I've made an investment
15 years ago in a shoe company in the United States. It went to zero. That was my mistake
and that will happen to me again. I hope it doesn't happen too often. But that exists no
matter where I make the investment. I try to analyze as carefully as I can; the competitive
position of the business, the durability of what they do, the quality of the management, all
that, and sometimes I make mistakes. If I make 20 investments I'm gonna make a couple of
mistakes. They may be in the United States, they may be in India, who knows.
Warren Buffett

It is all right to make mistakes; nothing is perfect because with perfection, we would not
exist.

All disciplines affect each other. Mistakenly the man says, "This is the only area where I let
down." Not true. Every let down affects the rest. Not to think so is naive.
Jim Rohn

You must learn from your past mistakes, but not lean on your past successes.
Denis Waitley

The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing what they most
enjoy.
Malcolm S. Forbes

A faultless person has seven faults; a faulty person forty-eight faults.
Japanese proverb

To make mistakes is human; to stumble is commonplace; to be able to laugh at yourself is
maturity.

For some reason, we see divorce as a signal of failure, despite the fact that each of us has a
right, and an obligation, to rectify any other mistake we make in life.
Joyce Brothers

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.
Paulo Coelho

All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless
of how much you blame him, it will not change you.
Wayne Dyer
