I feel that people are basically trying to do their best in the world. Even when you see people making mistakes, you understand why they're making a mistake. Everybody has flaws, everybody has demons, everybody has ghosts, but I think you watch people and you see everybody trying to do their best.
Making mistakes is part of life. The only things I would feel ashamed of would be if I had said things I hadn't believed in order to get on. Some politicians do do that.
Well, I think that part of being young is not exactly knowing why you do some of the things that you do. And it's by exploring your life or experimenting or making mistakes and learning from them hopefully that you start to forge an identity.
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.
You can't be in the public eye without making mistakes and having some regrets and having people analyze everything you do.
Once you accept that we're all imperfect, it's the most liberating thing in the world. Then you can go around making mistakes and saying the wrong thing and tripping over on the street and all that and not feel worried.
Life isn't about algebra and geometry. Learning by making mistakes and not duplicating them is what life is about.
If you have the guts to keep making mistakes, your wisdom and intelligence leap forward with huge momentum.
I feel like I've lived a life of making mistakes and learning from them and doing my best to only make each mistake once.
Experience is making mistakes and learning from them.
