Monday's special

It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.
Albert Einstein

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose.
Bill Gates

Be as smart as you can, but remember that it is always better to be wise than to be smart.
Alan Alda

A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether.
Roy H. Williams

A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.
John C. Maxwell



Dearest Claudia,
I love the one second from the bottom. Really well-said, isn't it☆☆☆ Oh, I wish I learn from my mistake better p;)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

I like the Einstein quote

@Miyako - in my eyes mistakes make our life exciting :)
@Adam - happy you enjoy my Monday's special

I love these. I really like the Alan Alda one. Someone can be super smart and still be dumb as a post.

@Ruth - so true!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
