Grow through your mistakes and know that if patient, redemption will find you.
PA'U ZOTOH ZHAAN, Farscape, "Self Inflicted Wounds: Part 2-Wait for the Wheel" (2001)
It may be an unwise man that doesn't learn from his own mistakes, but it's an absolute idiot that doesn't learn from other people's.
DR. FRASIER CRANE, Frasier, "Look Before You Leap" (1996)
We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering. That waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake, beats the hell out of not trying.
DR. MEREDITH GREY, Grey's Anatomy, "If Tomorrow Never Comes" (2005)
Mistakes are painful, but they are the only way to find out who you are.
DENNY DUQUETTE, Grey's Anatomy, "What I Am" (2006)
Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it.
ANNE SHIRLEY, Anne of Green Gables (1985)
Mental toughness is the ability to accept the fact that you're human and that you're going to make mistakes, lots of 'em, all your life. And some of them are gonna hurt people that you love very badly. But you have the guts to accept the fact that you ain't perfect. And you don't let your mistakes crush you and keep you from doing the very best that you can.
BILLY JACK, Billy Jack (1971)
We all make mistakes...that's why they put the rubber on the ends of pencils.
HUNK, Dead End (1937)
Geniuses don't make mistakes, they just instigate their own problems so that they could be worked out with deeper insight.
MAX, Good Time Max (2007)
To do something that you feel in your heart that's great, you need to make a lot of mistakes. Anything that's successful is a series of mistakes.
BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, Green Day: Bullet in a Bible (2005)
Take chances, make mistakes, get messy.
MS. VALERIE FRIZZLE, The Magic School Bus (1994)
