ON BEING WRONG
"The greatest right in the world,"
said Harry Weinberger, "is the right
to be wrong."
One of the major reasons that this mass
we call humanity usually stagnates at a
mediocre level or below is...that some one
is always telling us we're wrong...and then
gives us every opportunity to prove it.
One of the reasons Thomas Edison was
such a great inventor was that he was
given the money, materials, and freedom
to fail again and again, thousands of times.
Most "greats" become great because
they had the tenacity and determination
and the freedom to fall down, make mistakes,
pick themselves up and carry on.
Being right the first time is probably our best
option, but by being wrong then capitalizing
on our mistakes, we learn oh, so much
