Mistake quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#1. He who dishonors himself [by lying about his opinions] for the sake of being honored by others will find that two mistakes have been made - one by himself, and the other, by the people. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Mistake quotes by Mark Zandi
#2. The Bush tax cuts should be extended permanently for families with annual incomes of less than $250,000 and should be phased out slowly for those making more than that. Raising taxes on anyone now, when the economic recovery is so fragile, would be a mistake. #Quote by Mark Zandi
Mistake quotes by Ronald Reagan
#3. One of the worst mistakes anybody can make is to bet against Americans. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Mistake quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#4. For most of my life I have thought of grace as a hope of a bright tomorrow in spite of the darkness of today
and this is true. In this way we are all like Pamela, walking a road to grace
hoping for mercy. What we fail to realize is that grace is more than our destination, it is the journey itself, manifested in each breath and with each step we take. Grace surrounds us, whirls about us like the wind, falls on us like rain. Grace sustains us on our journeys, no matter how perilous they may be and, make no mistake, they are all perilous. We need not hope for grace, we merely need to open our eyes to its abundance. Grace is all around us, not just in the hopeful future but in the miracle of now. #Quote by Richard Paul Evans
Mistake quotes by Libba Bray
#5. I'm sorry,' he says simply. 'People make mistakes, Gemma. We take the wrong action for the right reasons, and the right action for the wrong reasons. #Quote by Libba Bray
Mistake quotes by Timothy Leary
#6. Half the things I've done are wrong, mistakes [unintelligible]. The moratorium on pot and LSD a year ago is ridiculous. I shouldn't have done that. I make a blunder at least one out of two times I come to bat. #Quote by Timothy Leary
Mistake quotes by Meister Eckhart
#7. The price of inaction is far greater than the cost of making a mistake. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Mistake quotes by Hudson Taylor
#8. To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, Come to me and rest. But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service, and do not mistake it. It is not, Go, labor on, as perhaps you imagine. On the contrary, it is stop, turn back, Come to me and rest. Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work; never, never did He send a hungry one, a weary one, a sick or sorrowing one, away on any service. For such the Bible only says, Come, come, come. #Quote by Hudson Taylor
Mistake quotes by Norman Cousins
#9. We have learned to live in a world of mistakes and defective products as if they were necessary to life. It is time to adopt a new philosophy in America. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Mistake quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#10. Life keeps on making the terrible mistake of making impatient people capable of making children. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Mistake quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#11. Can I have the heart to fluster the flustered Thipps further - that's very difficult to say quickly - by appearing in a top-hat and frock-coat? I think not. Ten to one he will overlook my trousers and mistake me for the undertaker. A grey suit, I fancy, neat but not gaudy, with a hat to tone, suits my other self better. Exit the amateur of first editions; new motive introduced by solo bassoon; enter Sherlock Holmes, disguised as a walking gentleman. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Mistake quotes by Sabahattin Ali
#12. People can only get to know each other up to a point and then they make up the rest, until one day, seeing their mistake, they turn their backs on sadness and run away. Would this ever happen, if they stopped believing their dreams and made do with what was possible? If everyone accepted what was natural, then no one would suffer disappointment, no one would curse fate. We have every right to see our situation as pitiful, but we must confine our pity to ourselves. To pity another is to assume superiority and that is why we must never think we are superior to others, or that others are more unfortunate. #Quote by Sabahattin Ali
Mistake quotes by Mark Foley
#13. We're taught as young kids Acknowledge your mistakes, admit your lies, ... It's cathartic. That's what I think the speech did. He didn't just try to blame someone else. #Quote by Mark Foley
Mistake quotes by Gary Lineker
#14. Soccer is a game for 22 people that run around, play the ball, and one referee who makes a slew of mistakes, and in the end Germany always wins. #Quote by Gary Lineker
Mistake quotes by MURS
#15. My life is like a song and I think I know the words,
And as I start to sing along the whole verse becomes a blur.
So I freestyle improv, make mistakes and evolve,
The obstacles repeat, cause naturally it revolves. #Quote by MURS
Mistake quotes by William James
#16. The science of logic never made a man reason rightly, and the science of ethics never made a man behave rightly. The most such sciences can do is to help us to catch ourselves up and check ourselves, if we start to reason or to behave wrongly; and to criticise ourselves more articulately after we have made mistakes. #Quote by William James
Mistake quotes by John Knox
#17. How good we are as preachers depends - not altogether, but (make no mistake!) primarily - on how good we are as men. #Quote by John Knox
Mistake quotes by Gore Verbinski
#18. It's a mistake for Hollywood to impose themselves on the gaming space. Not only is it arrogant, but it hasn't really worked. #Quote by Gore Verbinski
Mistake quotes by Jose Raul Capablanca
#19. Ninety percent of the book variations have no great value, because either they contain mistakes or they are based on fallacious assumptions; just forget about the openings and spend all that time on the endings. #Quote by Jose Raul Capablanca
Mistake quotes by Paul Bloom
#20. And it isn't a mistake in taste, like believing that the Matrix sequels were as good as the original. #Quote by Paul Bloom
Mistake quotes by Napoleon Hill
#21. It is in quiet that our best ideas occur to us. Don't make the mistake of believing that by a frantic kind of dashing around you are being your most effective and efficient self. Don't assume that you are wasting time when you take time out for thought. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Mistake quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#22. Self-evidence, of which Russell has said so much, can only be discarded in logic by language itself preventing every logical mistake. That logic is a priori consists in the fact that we cannot think illogically. #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Mistake quotes by Napoleon Hill
#23. No man has a chance to enjoy permanent success until he begins to look in a mirror for the real cause of all his mistakes - NAPOLEON HILL #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Mistake quotes by Suh Jung
#24. I'm crying because I feel wronged. I keep making mistakes and nothing seems to work for me. #Quote by Suh Jung
Mistake quotes by David Harvey
#25. The value-form of the product of labour is the most abstract, but also the most universal form of the bourgeois mode of production; by that fact it stamps the bourgeois mode of production as a particular kind of social production of a historical and transitory character. If then we make the mistake of treating it as the eternal natural form of social production, we necessarily overlook the specificity of the value-form, and consequently of the commodity-form together with its further developments, the money form, the capital form, etc. (174, #Quote by David Harvey
Mistake quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#26. You think I'm playing at some game? You think iron will keep you safe? Hear my words, manling. Do not mistake me for my mask. You see light dappling on the water and forget the deep, cold dark beneath. Listen. You cannot hurt me. You cannot run or hide. In this I will not be defied.

I swear by all the salt in me: if you run counter to my desire, the remainder of your brief mortal span will be an orchestra of misery.

I swear by stone and oak and elm: I'll make a game of you. I'll follow you unseen and smother any spark of joy you find. You'll never know a woman's touch, a breath of rest, a moment's peace of mind.

And I swear by the night sky and the ever-moving moon: if you lead my master to despair, I will slit you open and splash around like a child in a muddy puddle. I'll string a fiddle with your guts and make you play it while I dance. You are an educated man. You know there are no such things as demons. There is only my kind. You are not wise enough to fear me as I should be feared. You do not know the first note of the music that moves me. -Bast #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Mistake quotes by Donny Osmond
#27. I am not going to condemn anybody. That's where religion gets a bad name, when people get holier than thou. We are all human. If my children make a mistake, I want them to know it is all right and they should try harder next time. #Quote by Donny Osmond
Mistake quotes by Karen Russell
#28. I don't even want to try to understand it, and so begin to mistake it for something else after that, paling shadows of this original feeling, something inaudibly delicate that would not survive the passage into speech. #Quote by Karen Russell
Mistake quotes by Mark Helprin
#29. I've given myself to you. You may have my body, soul, everything. Time passes, and all I want is the intimacy that slows, defeats. and confounds it. Love, that's what it is. You've always made the mistake that men often make, and carried forward the great fault that mars civilisation, which is that you believe that your philosophy is deeper than love. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Mistake quotes by Peep Laja
#30. Remember - every "mistake" a user makes is not because they're stupid, but because your website sucks. #Quote by Peep Laja
Mistake quotes by Friedrich Schleiermacher
#31. The first, that their pretensions to this possession of an art properly so called in their art of speaking are entirely unfounded; and the second, that they are involved in a profound mistake in their confusion of the good with the pleasant. #Quote by Friedrich Schleiermacher
Mistake quotes by Thomas Paine
#32. I am sensible that he who means to do mankind a real service must set down with the determination of putting up, and bearing with all their faults, follies, prejudices and mistakes until he can convince them that he is right. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Mistake quotes by Woody Allen
#33. I've gained no wisdom, no insight, no mellowing. I would make all the same mistakes again, today. #Quote by Woody Allen
Mistake quotes by Samuel Goldwyn
#34. The independents who were our fiercest competitors all succumbed to the one-hit-makes-you-a-genius philosophy. It is a mistake to think you have the magic touch. Show business is roulette. If you start to play for stakes you can't afford, there's no way you can survive. #Quote by Samuel Goldwyn
Mistake quotes by Jason Versey
#35. Whenever we make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching us. Our capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from our capacity to reach our goals. Our failures, when they happen, are just part of our growth. Shake off your blunders. How will we know our limits without... the occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Mistake quotes by Lynsey Addario
#36. Stay in Latin America, learn photography, and make all your professional mistakes in Argentina," he said, "because if you make one mistake in New York, no one will give you a second chance. #Quote by Lynsey Addario
Mistake quotes by Sari Botton
#37. People often mistake New Yorkers for rude and mean, but they're really just no-nonsense and efficient. They don't have time, regularly, to be warm and friendly with everyone who crosses their path. Nothing would ever get done. But when the chips are down, when it matters, they drop their cool exteriors and become unabashedly human. #Quote by Sari Botton
Mistake quotes by Ben Bradlee
#38. We made only one real mistake. And even then we were right. #Quote by Ben Bradlee
Mistake quotes by K.J. Parker
#39. Most wars start because someone makes a mistake, and most battles are lost by the losing side rather than won by the victors. I'm not sure if that makes things better or worse. I suppose it depends on which you disapprove of more, malice or stupidity. #Quote by K.J. Parker
Mistake quotes by David Lynch
#40. I just hope that I get a chance to keep making pictures in the atmosphere of freedom to make mistakes, and to find those magical things. Then I don't care what else happens. #Quote by David Lynch
Mistake quotes by Bryant McGill
#41. Learning your lesson from a mistake is healthy, but living forever in the emotions of your past mistakes is toxic and debilitating. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Mistake quotes by C.D. Wright
#42. Poetry requires deliberate movement in its direction, a filament of faith in its persistence, receptivity to its fundamental worthwhileness. Within its unanesthetized heart there is quite a racket going on. Choices have to be made with respect to every mark. Not every mistake should be erased. Nor shall the unintelligible be left out. Order is there to be wrenched from the tangles of words. Results are impossible to measure. A clearing is drawn around the perimeter as if by a stick with a nail on the end. #Quote by C.D. Wright
Mistake quotes by Alysha Millet
#43. Life can be a mystery, love can be a mistake, laughter can turn into tears, but these are chances we'll have to take. #Quote by Alysha Millet
Mistake quotes by Chuck Yeager
#44. After about 30 minutes I puked all over my airplane. I said to my self, "Man, you made a big mistake." #Quote by Chuck Yeager
Mistake quotes by Dave Pelzer
#45. To help yourself, you must be yourself. Be the best that you can be. When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on. #Quote by Dave Pelzer
Mistake quotes by Cate Tiernan
#46. I saw something last night-a flash of power from an unexpected source. I can't jump to conclusions - I've been looking and waiting and watching for too long to make a mistake. But in my guy I feel she's here. She's here and she has power. I need to get closer to her. #Quote by Cate Tiernan
Mistake quotes by Otto De Joux
#47. It would be a mistake to suppose that all Urnings must be woman-haters. Quite the contrary. They are not seldom the faithfulest friends, the truest allies, and most convinced defenders of women. #Quote by Otto De Joux
Mistake quotes by Kay Stockham
#48. Liam stared at her, his gaze glittering hot with something she was afraid to identify because it made her knees weak and she couldn't breathe from the intensity and pace of her heart pounding away in her chest.
He wanted to kiss her.
He didn't want to want to kiss her - she could read that in his expression, as well - but she knew he did. And right, then. Cop or not - mistake that it would be - she wanted him to kiss her, too. #Quote by Kay Stockham
Mistake quotes by David Ben-Gurion
#49. We will make a great and awful mistake if we fail to settle Hebron, neighbor and predecessor of Jerusalem, with a large Jewish settlement, constantly growing and expanding, very soon. This will also be a blessing to the Arab neighbors. Hebron is worthy to be Jerusalem's sister. #Quote by David Ben-Gurion
Mistake quotes by Marcel Proust
#50. It is a mistake," Labruyère tells us, "to be in love without an ample fortune. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Mistake quotes by James Payn
#51. As a rule, anyone who can tell a good story can write one, so there really need be no mistake about his qualification; such a man will be careful not to be wearisome, and to keep his point, or his catastrophe, well in hand. #Quote by James Payn
Mistake quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#52. Moths and other nocturnal insects navigate by the moon and stars. Those heavenly bodies are useful for them to find their way, even though they never get far from the surface of the earth. But lightbulbs and candles send them astray; they fly into the heat or the flame and die. For these creatures, to arrive is a calamity. When activists mistake heaven for some goal at which they must arrive, rather than an idea to navigate Earth by, they burn themselves out, or they set up a totalitarian utopia in which others are burned in the flames. Don't mistake a lightbulb for the moon, and don't believe that the moon is useless unless we land on it. After all those millennia of poetry about the moon, nothing was more prosaic than the guys in space suits stomping around on the moon with their flags and golf clubs thirty-something years ago. The moon is profound except when we land on it. Paradise #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Mistake quotes by MaryElizabeth Williams
#53. The common mistake that bullies make is assuming that because someone is nice that he or she is weak. Those traits have nothing to do with each other. In fact, it takes considerable strength and character to be a good person. #Quote by MaryElizabeth Williams
Mistake quotes by B.R. Ambedkar
#54. Under the rule of the Peshwas in the Maratha country,11 the Untouchable was not allowed to use the public streets if a Hindu was coming along, lest he should pollute the Hindu by his shadow. The Untouchable was required to have a black thread either on his wrist or around his neck, as a sign or a mark to prevent the Hindus from getting themselves polluted by his touch by mistake. In Poona, the capital of the Peshwa, the Untouchable was required to carry, strung from his waist, a broom to sweep away from behind himself the dust he trod on, lest a Hindu walking on the same dust should be polluted. In Poona, the Untouchable was required to carry an earthen pot hung around his neck wherever he went - for holding his spit, lest his spit falling on the earth should pollute a Hindu who might unknowingly happen to tread on it. #Quote by B.R. Ambedkar
Mistake quotes by Oswald Chambers
#55. It is much easier to do something than to trust in God; we mistake panic for inspiration. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Mistake quotes by David Brin
#56. The worst mistake of first contact, made throughout history by individuals on both sides of every new encounter, has been the unfortunate habit of making assumptions. It often proved fatal. #Quote by David Brin
Mistake quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#57. Show me a man who makes no mistakes, and I will show you a man who doesn't do things. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Mistake quotes by Graig Nettles
#58. It was the first time I used that bat. A Yankee fan in Chicago gave it to me the last time we were there and said it would bring me luck. There's no brand name on it or anything. Maybe the guy made it himself. It had been in the bat rack, and I picked it up by mistake because it looked like the bat I had been using the last few days. #Quote by Graig Nettles
Mistake quotes by Fred Durst
#59. I made a lot mistakes that I'm grateful for, because I won't make them again and I won't let my artists make them, or I'll tell them, 'Don't do this.' A lot of them still make them anyway, but you can't be told things when you're doing your own thing. #Quote by Fred Durst
Mistake quotes by Sanford I. Weill
#60. If a person is not willing to make a mistake, you're never going to do anything right. #Quote by Sanford I. Weill
Mistake quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#61. A long-time associate, Beth, who likes to refer to herself as the 'Grill Bitch', excelled at putting loudmouths and fools into their proper place. She refused to behave any differently than her male co-workers: she'd change in the same locker area, dropping her pants right alongside them. She was as sexually aggressive, and as vocal about it, as her fellow cooks, but unlikely to suffer behavior she found demeaning. One sorry Moroccan cook who pinched her ass found himself suddenly bent over a cutting board with Beth dry-humping him from behind, saying, 'How do you like it, bitch?' The guy almost died of shame - and never repeated that mistake again.
Another female line cook I had the pleasure of working with arrived at work one morning to find that an Ecuadorian pasta cook had decorated her station with some particularly ugly hard-core pornography of pimply-assed women getting penetrated in every orifice by pot-bellied guys with prison tattoos and back hair. She didn't react at all, but a little later, while passing through the pasta man's station, casually remarked. 'Jose, I see you brought in some photos of the family. Mom looks good for her age. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Mistake quotes by Sandy Williams
#62. I'm not a mistake, McKenzie, #Quote by Sandy Williams
Mistake quotes by George Ripley
#63. If any imagine from the literary tone of the preceding remarks that we are indifferent to the radical movement for the benefit of the masses which is the crowning glory of the nineteenth century, they will soon discover their egregious mistake. #Quote by George Ripley
Mistake quotes by Karla Cheatham Mosley
#64. When I fail or make a mistake, I ask myself what lesson I was supposed to learn or how I can show up differently next time. #Quote by Karla Cheatham Mosley
Mistake quotes by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
#65. Any mistake in life is likely to show its ill effect one day. #Quote by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
Mistake quotes by Natalia Kills
#66. The worst mistake a woman can make is to emulate a man. #Quote by Natalia Kills
Mistake quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#67. People make the mistake of thinking that experiencing an emotion means you have to do something about it. In fact, you don't have to do anything with your emotions at all. You can simply acknowledge them as they arrive – oh, look, that old bitch Envy is back again – then go about your business.
It's the clinging to emotion that causes suffering … A wiser choice is to let it go and breathe. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Mistake quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#68. I should not mistake her calm probing for the absence of anger. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Mistake quotes by Caitlyn Siehl
#69. I promise a banquet for our ending.
I promise a parade of drums for the day you
close the door behind you for the last time.
I promise not to carry you around with me like a mistake
or a pack of gum, even when I forget what you taste like.
When they ask me about you,
I will always smile.
I will say your name and it will sound
like thank you. #Quote by Caitlyn Siehl
Mistake quotes by M. Russell Ballard
#70. But one thing is certain: the commandments have not changed. Let there be no mistake about that. Right is still right. Wrong is still wrong, no matter how cleverly cloaked in respectability or political correctness. We believe in chastity before marriage and fidelity ever after. That standard is an absolute standard of truth. It is neither subject to public opinion polls nor dependent upon situation or circumstance. There is no need to debate it or other gospel standards. #Quote by M. Russell Ballard
Mistake quotes by Josh Howard
#71. A lot of teams made a mistake in the NBA draft. #Quote by Josh Howard
Mistake quotes by Allie Burke
#72. Let her go, Brendan said, and Will did.
And that was the biggest mistake of his life. Letting her go. #Quote by Allie Burke
Mistake quotes by Bill Moyers
#73. Journalists who make mistakes get sued for libel; historians who make mistakes get to publish a revised edition. #Quote by Bill Moyers
Mistake quotes by Ray Lewis
#74. God has never made a mistake. Ever. #Quote by Ray Lewis
Mistake quotes by Tahar Ben Jelloun
#75. The mistake we make is to attribute to religions the errors and fanaticism of human beings. #Quote by Tahar Ben Jelloun
Mistake quotes by Joanne Harris
#76. It was one of those red-gold early October days, the air crisp and tart as heady as applejack, and even at dawn the sky was the clear, purplish blue that only the finest of autumn days brings. There are maybe three such days in a year. I sang as I lifted my traps, and my voice bounced off the misty banks of the Loire like a challenge. It was the mushroom season, so after I had brought my catch back to the farm and cleaned it out, I took some bread and cheese for breakfast and set out into the woods to hunt for mushrooms. I was always good at that. Still am, to tell the truth, but in those days I had a nose like a truffle pig's. I could smell those mushrooms out, the gray chanterelle and the orange, with its apricot scent, the bolet and the petit rose and the edible puffball and the brown-cap and the blue-cap. Mother always told us to take our mushrooms to the pharmacy to ensure we had not gathered anything poisonous, but I never made a mistake. I knew the meaty scent of the bolet and the dry, earthy smell of the brown-cap mushroom. I knew their haunts and breeding grounds. I was a patient collector. #Quote by Joanne Harris
Mistake quotes by Samanth Subramanian
#77. It is the postscript to the war that offers the most revelatory and startling commentary on Dutugemunu's life. Despite his newfound wealth and his peactime luxuries, Dutugemunu wanders gloomily about his palace, too often remembering the carnage he wrought on the battlefield and worried over the deep karmic deficits he has incurred. The elders of the Sangha, the Buddhist clergy, notice this and send a delegation of eight monks to minister to his anguish.

'In truth, venerable sirs,' Dutugemunu tells the monks when they arrive, 'how can there be comfort to me in that I caused the destruction of a great army of myriads of men?'

'There is no hindrance on the way to heaven because of your acts,' one of the monks assures his king. Slaughtering Tamils is no moral mistake. Only the equivalent of one and a half men died at Dutugemunu's hands, according to the Sangha's official arithmetic, because the Tamils 'were heretical and evil and dies as though they were animals. You will make the Buddha's faith shine in many ways. Therefore, Lord of Men, cast away your mental confusion.'

Being thus exhorted, the great king was comforted; his kill rate would never disturb him again. He does, however, recall that, once upon a breakfast, he ate a red-pepper pod without consciously setting aside a portion of it for the Sangha, as was the royal practice. 'For this,' he decides, 'penance must be done by me.' A hierarchy of sin springs into being, in which dishonourin #Quote by Samanth Subramanian
Mistake quotes by Rand Paul
#78. To put everyone in government housing and food stamps and bring them in from around the world I think is a mistake. To give of your own money, I've given to my church. My church has helped people that came from Bosnia. That's a good thing. #Quote by Rand Paul
Mistake quotes by Seth Godin
#79. I think if your goal is for everything to be okay, that's a mistake. To achieve that goal, the only obstacle you'd have to face tomorrow is to eliminate all risk ... I've made the decision that I'm never trying to make everything okay. I'm trying for there to be more loose ends, not fewer loose ends. #Quote by Seth Godin
Mistake quotes by Alma Kruger
#80. All my life, the mistakes I've made have been honorable ones. #Quote by Alma Kruger
Mistake quotes by Igor Eliseev
#81. What if initially they had named you Faith and me Hope, but afterwards they forgot who of us had which name and swapped them around by mistake? You always believe that everything is going to be all right, and your faith helps me."
"And you hope that it will be that way. We have this close bond between us," and, after thinking a while, you added, "All people need hope, no one can live without it; and our hope is way stronger when it is warmed up by faith. So it isn't really important who is Faith and who is Hope; the main thing is that we are connected together. #Quote by Igor Eliseev
Mistake quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#82. Just as we may learn from our successes (how to do it) so also can we learn from our mistakes (how not to do it). It just isn't in the cards that anybody should get by forever without making mistakes and perhaps sometimes making costly ones. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Mistake quotes by Mark Fisher
#83. [I]t is a mistake to rush to impose the individual ethical responsibility that the corporate structure deflects. This is the temptation of the ethical which, as Zizek has argued, the capitalist system is using in order to protect itself in the wake of the credit crisis - the blame will be put on supposedly pathological individuals, those' abusing the system', rather than on the system itself. But the evasion is actually a two step procedure - since structure will often be invoked (either implicitly or openly) precisely at the point when there is the possibility of individuals who belong to the corporate structure being punished. At this point, suddenly, the causes of abuse or atrocity are so systemic, so diffuse, that no individual can be held responsible… But this impasse - it is only individuals that can be held ethically responsible for actions, and yet the cause of these abuses and errors is corporate, systemic - is not only a dissimulation: it precisely indicates what is lacking in capitalism. What agencies are capable of regulating and controlling impersonal structures? How is it possible to chastise a corporate structure? Yes, corporations can legally be treated as individuals - but the problem is that corporations, whilst certainly entities, are not like individual humans, and any analogy between punishing corporations and punishing individuals will therefore necessarily be poor. And it is not as if corporations are the deep-level agents behind everything; they are th #Quote by Mark Fisher
Mistake quotes by Tiffany Reisz
#84. You're not answering my question. It's getting irritating."
"Okay, serious answer. Ready? Here we go." Nora took a deep breath. She didn't want to talk about this stuff with Marie-Laure, but as long as she stayed interesting, as long as she stayed entertaining, she stayed alive. "I get off on submitting to Søren. I don't know how or why. I can't explain any more than you can explain why you like Irish breakfast tea instead of English breakfast or whatever you're drinking. It's a personal taste. I liked it. He's the most beautiful man on earth, he's got an inner drive and power that I'm drawn to, he can scare the shit out of someone with a glance, he can put someone on their knees with a word, he can see into your soul if you make the mistake of looking into his eyes. And it is a mistake because you will never want to look away again no matter how bare and naked he lays your most private self. I knelt at his feet because I felt like that's where I belonged. And no, not because I was so unworthy of him, but because he was so utterly worthy of my devotion."
A noble speech and a true one, Nora decided as her words settled into the room. True, yes, but not the whole truth. Might as well spill it all.
"Oh," she added a moment later. "And me submitting to pain gets him rock hard and the man fucks like a freight train when in the right mood. Not that you would know anything about that. #Quote by Tiffany Reisz
Mistake quotes by Junior Brown
#85. Sometimes it's the mistakes that end up leading you into new territory .. like the guitar solo on 'Peelin' Taters' - I had some speaker problems, but the tone ended up sounding better than if I had new speakers .. it's a 60's Nashville, 'uptown' thing #Quote by Junior Brown
Mistake quotes by Frederick Lenz
#86. To suffer because of anything you see, feel or experience here in the world of moment to moment is a mistake. It is like becoming upset over a frightening dream. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Mistake quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#87. It would be a very serious mistake for the U.K. to vote to leave the European Union, and I think it would be democratically indefensible for Scotland, if we had voted to stay in, to face the prospect of being taken out. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Mistake quotes by Mande Chambers
#88. No lie, secret, betrayal, or mistake will remain concealed if you have a past. #Quote by Mande Chambers

Mistake quotes by Elvis Stojko

but I learn from my mistakes, and move on. #Quote by Elvis Stojko
Mistake quotes by Ron Swanson
#92. History began July 4, 1776. Anything before that was a mistake. #Quote by Ron Swanson

#93. It is a great mistake for men to give up paying compliments, for when they give up saying what is charming, they give up thinking what is charming. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Mistake quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#94. A man who knows that he is saved by believing in Christ does not, when he is baptized, lift his baptism into a saving ordinance. In fact, he is the very best protester against that mistake, because he holds that he has no right to be baptized until he is saved. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Mistake quotes by George Takei
#95. People can do great things, George. They can come up with noble, shining ideals. But people are also fallible human beings, and we know they made a terrible mistake. - Takekuma Norman Takei #Quote by George Takei
Mistake quotes by Lindsay Fox
#96. Life isn't about algebra and geometry. Learning by making mistakes and not duplicating them is what life is about. #Quote by Lindsay Fox
Mistake quotes by Megan Whalen Turner
#97. That won't be necessary," said the magus coolly. "No one would mistake you for anything but a tool, Gen. If a sword is well made, does the credit go to the blacksmith or to his hammer? How much smarter than a hammer can you be if you flaunt the proof of your crimes in a wineshop?" I flushed, and he laughed. If I hadn't already been angry, it might not have seemed unkind laughter. #Quote by Megan Whalen Turner
Mistake quotes by Dorianne Laux
#98. You've traveled this far on the back of every mistake, ridden in dark-eyed and morose but calm as a house after the TV set has been pitched out the upstairs window. (from "Antilamentation") #Quote by Dorianne Laux
Mistake quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#99. The secularists in Turkey haven't underestimated religion, they just made the mistake of believing they could control it with the power of the army alone. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Mistake quotes by Matthew Zapruder
#100. That is a horrible thing in a way, but it is the one thing poets can bring back to experience, this intense focus on language, which activates words as a portal back into experience. It's a mysterious process that's very hard to articulate, because it's focused entirely on the material of language in a way, but in the interests not just of language itself whatever that would mean - that's the mistake, by the way, that so many so-called "experimental" poets make - but in service to human experience. #Quote by Matthew Zapruder
Mistake quotes by Monique Wittig
#101. There is no 'feminine writing' ... and one makes a mistake is using and giving currency to this expression. #Quote by Monique Wittig
Mistake quotes by Edward Young
#102. Of man's miraculous mistakes, this bears The palm, "That all men are about to live." #Quote by Edward Young
Mistake quotes by Walter Mosley
#103. My father cared about the world he lived in, and so he admitted his confusion about his place in America because he didn't want me to make the same mistake in my life. #Quote by Walter Mosley
Mistake quotes by Paul Saffo
#104. Never mistake a clear view for a short distance. #Quote by Paul Saffo
Mistake quotes by Brene Brown
#105. I've learned enough about privilege to know that we're at our most dangerous when we think we've learned everything we need to know about it. That's when you stop paying attention to injustice. And make no mistake, not paying attention because you're not the one getting harassed or fired or pulled over or underpaid is the definition of privilege. #Quote by Brene Brown
Mistake quotes by Robert Ringer
#106. One of the biggest mistakes that most people make is clinging to the excuse that the time isn't quite right to take action. Well, let me tell you something: In my experience, conditions are never right at the right time. The timing is always wrong. So if you're waiting for everything to be perfect before taking action, you have a foolproof excuse for never taking action. #Quote by Robert Ringer
Mistake quotes by Lewis Thomas
#107. Mistakes are at the very base of human thought, embedded there, feeding the structure like root nodules. If we were not provided with the knack for being wrong, we could never get anything useful done. We think our way along by choosing between right and wrong alternatives, and the wrong choices have to be made as often as the right ones. We get along in life this way. #Quote by Lewis Thomas
Mistake quotes by Bob Woodward
#108. For those of you who were critical that nobody paid enough attention to the generals at the beginning of the war, has it occurred to you that you don't want to make that mistake at the end of the war?
Secretary Robert Gates #Quote by Bob Woodward
Mistake quotes by Christine Feehan
#109. Savannah moved gracefully, going directly across the darkened street, heading for the shadows of the square. She was very much aware of Gregori still close to her, his body protective. For a moment she thought he brushed her shoulder with his hand, the sensation was so real, but when she turned her head, he was several feet behind.
Go, ma petite, take Gary to the house.Do not allow the neighbors to see either of you.And place the safeguards carefully.
What about you?
There is no safeguard I cannot unravel. Go now. This time, there was so mistake. He was four feet away, already turning away from her, but she felt his mouth burning possessively on hers, lingering for just a moment, his tongue tracing the curve of her lip. She couldn't believe he could make her want him, burn for him, when he was going off into the night alone to fight their enemies.
The night has always been mine, Savannah.Do not waste your time worrying about me. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Mistake quotes by Willem Dafoe
#110. I think, as I've gotten older, I've been able to be more reckless with my choices, because practically speaking, you get less careful. Your choices become more instinctive, and you feel like if you make a mistake, it won't destroy you. #Quote by Willem Dafoe
Mistake quotes by Jeremy Hardy
#111. I think we mistake sadness for depression, because life is basically sad, and its the failure to recognize that that leads to this sort of resentment and bewilderment [...] It is, it is, and [..] you know, people just suddenly think that the world owes it to them to be happy, and they're not happy and then they think well, why aren't I happy, and makes 'em angry and then they're depressed about the fact that they're angry and they're bitter about the fact that they're depressed, and this downward cycle; why don't they just accept that life is sad and cheer up, it's not forever. #Quote by Jeremy Hardy
Mistake quotes by Danielle  Paige
#112. They say you can't go home again. Well, I'm proof that's not true. Home isn't just where you're born-it's where you belong. I found my home and I let it go. But I came back. Now I was home for good, and I would never, ever make the mistake of leaving again. The past was gone forever. There was no place like here. #Quote by Danielle Paige
Mistake quotes by Pyotr Kropotkin
#113. It is only those who do nothing who makes no mistake. #Quote by Pyotr Kropotkin
Mistake quotes by Mishka Shubaly
#114. Never make the mistake of thinking that alcoholics are weak, because it took an incredible amount of internal strength and conviction in order for me to keep drinking despite the growing mountain of evidence against it. #Quote by Mishka Shubaly
Mistake quotes by Karen Bohlin
#115. It is a mistake to tell students that their classroom is a democracy- it cannot and never will be. But children need to learn how to participate in a community and to prepare themselves for democratic citizenship. #Quote by Karen Bohlin
Mistake quotes by Eric Russell
#116. For explanations, they did not look in the pages of the visitor's book to see if others likewise found that ghostly happenings abound. #Quote by Eric Russell

#117. One man's mistake is another man's opportunity. #Quote by Steven Brust
Mistake quotes by Nicole Holofcener
#118. People say to me all the time that I threw some money into some guy's coffee cup [by accident, thinking they were poor]. People do make the same sort of mistake. I've made attempts to volunteer that have been calamitous! #Quote by Nicole Holofcener
Mistake quotes by Mark Frauenfelder
#119. The fact of the matter is that mistakes are really important way to learn. #Quote by Mark Frauenfelder
Mistake quotes by Will Durant
#120. It is a mistake to think that the past is dead. Nothing that has ever happened is quite without influence at this moment. The present is merely the past rolled up and concentrated in this second of time. You, too, are your past; often your face is your autobiography; you are what you are because of what you have been; because of your heredity stretching back into forgotten generations; because of every element of environment that has affected you, every man or woman that has met you, every book that you have read, every experience that you have had; all these are accumulated in your memory, your body, your character, your soul. So with a city, a country, and a race; it is its past, and cannot be understood without it. #Quote by Will Durant
Mistake quotes by Brit Bennett
#121. A town always looked different once you'd returned, like a house where all the furniture had shifted three inches. You wouldn't mistake it for a stranger's house but you'd keeping banging your shins on the table corners. #Quote by Brit Bennett
Mistake quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#122. But we make such mistakes all the time, all through our lives. Wisdom, I suppose, is seeing this and acting upon it before it is too late. But it is often too late, isn't it? - and those things that we should have said are unsaid, and remain unsaid for ever. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Mistake quotes by Donald Rumsfeld
#123. It isn't making mistakes that's critical; it's correcting them and getting on with the principal task. #Quote by Donald Rumsfeld
Mistake quotes by Sandra Brown
#124. He made a costly error in judgement and sent an entire regiment into a virtual slaughterhouse. It happens frequently. Officers risk their troops' lives for the sake of a promotion. Not my father. He valued the life of every man under his command, from his officers to the humblest fresh recruit. When he realized what had happened, he was devastated. He couldn't ever forget that his error had cost the lives of so many men, created so many widows and orphans..."
"But, Lyon, measured against his valor, one mistake is forgivable."
"To us, yes. Not to him. He was sickened that the battle was hailed as one of the turning points of the war. He was decorated for it. It was considered a great victory, but it defeated him as a soldier, as a man. When he came home and was hailed a hero, he couldn't stand the conflict within himself. He didn't feel like a hero. He felt like a traitor."
"That can't be!"
"Not a traitor to his country, but to the men who had trusted his judgement and leadership. It was a conflict he never could reconcile, so he retired from the Army and came here and shut out the world and all reminders of the lie he was living."
They were quiet for a moment before she said,"No one would have thrown stones at him, Lyon. he was a respected man, a hero, a leader at a time in history when America needed heroes and leaders. It was a battleground that spread out for miles. Admist all the chaos he may have thought he made a mistake when he actually didn't. #Quote by Sandra Brown
Mistake quotes by Alexander McQueen
#125. You can only go forward by making mistakes. I'm twenty-seven, not fifty-seven. I'm not Givenchy, I'm Alexander McQueen. #Quote by Alexander McQueen
Mistake quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#126. And the past held only this wisdom: that love was a damaging mistake, and its accomplice, hope, a treacherous illusion. And whenever those twin poisonous flowers began to sprout in the parched land of that field, Mariam uprooted them. She uprooted them and ditched them before they took hold. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Mistake quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#127. Cynthia had been on friendly terms with an eccentric librarian called Porlock who in the last years of his dusty life had been engaged in examining old books for miraculous misprints such as the substitution of "1" for the second "h" in the word "hither." Contrary to Cynthia, he cared nothing for the thrill of obscure predictions; all he sought was the freak itself, the chance that mimics choice, the flaw that looks like a flower; and Cynthia, a much more perverse amateur of misshapen or illicitly connected words, puns, logogriphs, and so on, had helped the poor crank to pursue a quest that in the light of the example she cited struck me as statistically insane. ("The Vane Sisters") #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Mistake quotes by Rick Warren
#128. It is a fatal mistake to assume that God's goal for your life is material prosperity or popular success, as the world defines it. The abundant life has nothing to do with material abundance, and faithfulness to God does not guarantee success in a career or even ministry. Never focus on temporary crowns. #Quote by Rick Warren
Mistake quotes by Warren Farrell
#129. Male bashing is everywhere. It would be a mistake to view the current situation as another skirmish in the war between the sexes. Women have been doing the shooting, and men have been burying their heads in the sand, hoping the bullets will miss. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Mistake quotes by Hardeep Singh Kohli
#130. To reduce a library to simple architecture, bricks and mortar is a mistake. Similarly, to suggest a library is defined by the books on the shelf is erroneous. Libraries are very special spaces, spaces where people come together in separate but joint pursuits of knowledge, of learning. Libraries are the heartbeats of communities. #Quote by Hardeep Singh Kohli
Mistake quotes by Robert Greene
#131. An emotional response to a situation is the single greatest barrier to power, a mistake that will cost you a lot more than any temporary satisfaction you might gain by expressing your feelings. #Quote by Robert Greene
Mistake quotes by David Keith Jones
#132. ...it is a fundamental mistake, in my opinion, to try to abolish the mobility of pastoral man which has been the single most important factor in his successful mastery of a very difficult environment. #Quote by David Keith Jones

Mistake quotes by Joe Torre
#134. We can learn from past failures and mistakes, but we shouldn't get stuck there. We can keep future goals in mind, but we shouldn't get stuck there, either. The only way to reach our potential is to focus on what we must do now - this moment, this day - to perform effectively and win. #Quote by Joe Torre
Mistake quotes by Kiera Cass
#135. I've heard a collective gasp. I ran over the sentence in my head. It took me a minute to catch my mistake; I'd called him Maxon. #Quote by Kiera Cass
Mistake quotes by Jim Bouton
#136. The only member of the team nobody liked was our 6 o'clock sports guy, a fellow named Howard Cosell. "Monday Night Football" was just getting started and Howard was annoyed at having to be on the same news with mere local personalities, whom he would attack on the air. This was a mistake in the case of Roger Grimsby who was a lot sharper and even more devastating than Cosell, in his own way. I remember one night, at the end of his report, Howard went into a sarcastic putdown of Grimsby that lasted for what seemed like two minutes. Finally, when Howard was finished, the camera switched to Grimsby who was sitting there with his eyes closed, snoring. #Quote by Jim Bouton
Mistake quotes by Stephanie Garber
#137. It felt like a mistake the minute she hit the water.

She missed the rocks, but it was too cold. Her wrist was too broken. Her heart was too weak. Her dress was too cumbersome. But she fought like a demon trying to break out of hell and into the heavens. She ignored things that sucked at her ankles and anything that slithered against her now-bare feet. Tella didn't escape her father, a trio of Fates, and every other trial in her life to allow herself to be killed by some cold water and a shattered wrist.

Death would have to try harder if he wanted to take her back, and she was not about to let him do that. If she perished there'd also be no one to take care of Scarlett, to make sure her sister had all the proper adventures and kissed more boys than just Julian. Scarlett deserved all the kisses. Maybe Tella wanted more kisses too, ones that wouldn't end in death. #Quote by Stephanie Garber
Mistake quotes by Anna Wickham
#138. I feel that women of my kind are a profound mistake. There have been few women poets of distinction, and, if we count only the suicides of Sappho, Lawrence Hope and Charlotte Mew, their despair rate has been very high. #Quote by Anna Wickham
Mistake quotes by John Flanagan
#139. But what if I make a mistake?' Will asked.
Gilan threw back his head and laughed. 'A mistake? One mistake? You should be so lucky. You'll make dozens! I made four or five on my first day alone! Of course you'll make mistakes. Just don't make any of them twice. If you do mess things up, don't try to hide it. Don't try to rationalize it. Recognize it and admit it and learn from it. We never stop learning, none of us. #Quote by John Flanagan
Mistake quotes by Assegid Habtewold

Mistake quotes by Elizabeth Hoyt
#141. This is who I am, Séraphine. Naked, with blade and blood. I am vengeance. I am hate. I am sin personified. Never mistake me for the hero of this tale, for I am not and shall never be. I am the villain. #Quote by Elizabeth Hoyt

Mistake quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#144. Barrons laughed again. And there, my dear Fio, you make one of Womankind's greatest mistakes: Falling in love with a man's potential. We so rarely share the same view of it, and even more rarely care to achieve it. Stop pining for the man you think I could be
and take a good, long, hard look at the one I am. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Mistake quotes by Jason Chaffetz

Mistake quotes by Shelby Reed
#148. His voice grew more remote. She wondered if he was calling from his condominium, where he'd lost his best friend, or from Avalon, where he'd lost himself. "I like you, Billie. You're a nice person. Good company. But tonight was a mistake."
She flung an arm over her eyes and swallowed the lump of tears that had lodged in her throat. "Oh? Which part? The part where you introduced me to your family and exposed yourself as coming from a perfectly average, wholesome background? Or the part where you touched me and turned me inside-out while swaying in a hammock in the rich, beautiful woods - one of the most searing sexual experiences of my life? Which part do you regret, Adrian?"
"All of it. I can't have those things with you. You know what I am."
"Yes, Adrian, I know what you are. A gentle man. A likable one. Smart. Cultured. Sexy. I know what you are."
"But the other part - "
"What about the other part? You hide behind the other part." She yanked the pillow out from beneath her head and winged it across the bedroom, furious suddenly. "Did you call to tell me I'm not going to see you anymore? Because if that's the case, hurry up and say it. Then hang up and go back to work, and don't worry one bit about me. I've been on my own a long time, and I'm tougher than you think. I won't cling to any man who'd rather be a-a - " She stumbled, bit back the ugly words rushing to her lips.
"A what?" he countered softly. "A whore? A gigolo? Go ahead and say #Quote by Shelby Reed

I discover myself on the verge of the usual mistake. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Mistake quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#151. Often we can achieve an even better result when we stumble yet are willing to start over, when we don't give up after a mistake, when something doesn't come easily but we throw ourselves into trying, when we're not afraid to appear less than perfectly polished. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Mistake quotes by Janet Frame
#152. Timmy, who made a daring escape, also made a mistake of paying the taxi driver with a check made out of toilet paper. #Quote by Janet Frame
Mistake quotes by Peter Singer
#153. It is a mistake to assume that the law should always enforce morality. #Quote by Peter Singer
Mistake quotes by Patrick Curry
#154. Despair is for people who know, beyond any doubt, what the future is going to bring. Nobody is in that position. So despair is not only a kind of sin, theologically, but also a simple mistake, because nobody actually knows. In that sense there is always hope. #Quote by Patrick Curry
Mistake quotes by Frederick Buechner
#155. I'm not going to spend any time looking into myself the way one who prays does. Maybe that's an even worse mistake than praying might be. #Quote by Frederick Buechner

Mistake quotes by Hillary Clinton
#157. People make mistakes and I'm certainly not saying you [Bernie Sanders] did it for any kind of financial advantage. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Mistake quotes by Jodi Picoult
#158. Mistakes are like the memories you hide in an attic: old love letters from relationships that tanked, photos of dead relatives, toys from a childhood you miss. Out of sight is out of mind, but somewhere deep inside you know they still exist. And you also know that you're avoiding them. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Mistake quotes by Vern Sheridan Poythress
#159. Some of the thinking about religion makes a mistake right here. If, in our thinking, God or religion becomes like an apple, we are in charge and we do our own investigating in whatever way we please. On the other hand, if God is a person, and in fact a person infinitely greater than we, it is up to him how he chooses to meet us. Until we get to know him, we cannot say whether he makes himself known in all religions equally, or in none of them, or in one particular way that fits his character. #Quote by Vern Sheridan Poythress
Mistake quotes by Frank Herbert
#160. When your opponent fears you, then's the moment when you give the fear its own rein, give it the time to work on him. Let it become terror. The terrified man fights himself. Eventually, he attacks in desperation. That is the most dangerous moment, but the terrified man can be trusted usually to make a fatal mistake. You are being trained here to detect these mistakes and use them. The #Quote by Frank Herbert
Mistake quotes by Don Herold
#161. If I had my life to live over, I would try to make more mistakes. I would relax. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I know of very few things that I would take seriously. I would be less hygienic. I would go more places. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less spinach. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary troubles. #Quote by Don Herold
Mistake quotes by Mike Tyson
#162. People say 'Poor guy.' That insults me. I despise sympathy. So I screwed up. I made some mistakes. 'Poor guy,' like I'm some victim. There's nothing poor about me. #Quote by Mike Tyson
Mistake quotes by Anne Michaels
#163. I do not believe home is where we're born, or the place we grew up, not a birthright or an inheritance, not a name, or blood or country. It is not even the soft part that hurts when touched, that defines our loneliness the way a bowl defines water. It will not be located in a smell or taste or talisman or a word…
Home is our first real mistake. It is the one error that changes everything, the one lesson you could let destroy you. It is from this moment that we begin to build our home in the world. It is this place that we furnish with smell, taste, a talisman, a name. #Quote by Anne Michaels
Mistake quotes by Katie Reus
#164. This is probably a mistake," he rasped out, his words jumbled against her mouth.

"So?" She didn't care if it was. He was a mistake she would make again and again. #Quote by Katie Reus
Mistake quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#165. Often hell is portrayed as a place of punishment and heaven as a place of reward. But this concept easily leads us to think about God as either a policeman, who tries to catch us when we make a mistake and send us to prison when our mistakes become too big, or a Santa Claus, who counts up all our good deeds and puts rewards in our stockings at the end of the year. God, however, is neither a policeman nor a Santa Claus. God does not send us to heaven or hell depending on how often we obey or disobey. God is love and only love. In God there is no hatred, desire for revenge, or pleasure in seeing us punished. God wants to forgive, heal, restore, show us endless mercy, and see us come home. But just as the father of the prodigal son let his son make his own decision, God gives us the freedom to refuse God's love, even at the risk of destroying ourselves. Hell is not God's choice. It is ours. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Mistake quotes by Richard Yates
#166. Wasn't it true, then, that everything in his life from that point on had been a succession of things he hadn't really wanted to do? Taking a hopelessly dull job to prove he could be as responsible as any other family man, moving to an overpriced, genteel apartment to prove his mature belief in the fundamentals of orderliness and good health, having another child to prove that the first one hadn't been a mistake, buying a house in the country because that was the next logical step and he had to prove himself capable of taking it. Proving, proving; and for no other reason than that he was married to a woman who had somehow managed to put him forever on the defensive, who loved him when he was nice, who lived according to what she happened to feel like doing and who might at any time - this was the hell of it - who might at any time of day or night just happen to feel like leaving him.
It was as ludicrous and as simple as that. #Quote by Richard Yates
Mistake quotes by Joyce Meyer

Mistake quotes by Zooey Deschanel

Mistake quotes by Burn Gorman
#169. I'm a film buff and I was keen to find out about the response to Daniel Craig's 007. 'Empire' and 'Hot Dog' had great reviews, and finally he's been accepted as the new Bond. So many millions go into that franchise that if you make a mistake, it's awful. #Quote by Burn Gorman
Mistake quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#170. Trust me, little one. Everyone makes mistakes. Even the gods, and ours are much worse than those of humans. Unlike humans, we don't suffer alone. Rather, we share the pain with thousands. That's why you must learn to be like your father. To hold in your tears and anger. Try not to punish what you love. (Artemis) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Mistake quotes by Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...

Mistake quotes by Zach Condon
#176. It's funny because you do often read in recounts of very famous albums, people tend to focus on mistakes in really positive ways, and there's certain mistakes of my own that I always do find on every record that I needed to accept. I find it really interesting to talk about. I always write songs at the wrong tempos, and I have to learn to accept that a little bit. #Quote by Zach Condon
Mistake quotes by Ayn Rand
#177. Men hate passion, any great passion. Henry Cameron made a mistake: he loved his work. That was why he fought. That was why he lost. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Mistake quotes by Kate McGahan
#178. Our Master puts the desire to procreate in us to be sure that we are fruitful and multiply. He knows how important animals are to the planet because most animals He allows to reproduce in great number. He put every one of us on the ark for a reason. Do you think it's a mistake that dogs and cats have litters of 8, 9, 10 or more and people typically only have one or maybe two? It's no mistake. It's because God intends that there is more than enough four-legged love to go around. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Mistake quotes by Jeane Kirkpatrick
#179. I conclude that it is a fundamental mistake to think that salvation, justice, or virtue come through merely human institutions. #Quote by Jeane Kirkpatrick

Mistake quotes by Aly Martinez
#183. You made me see that friendship is a farce and trusting anyone other than myself is the biggest mistake I could make. It was a lesson I had been learning my whole life up until that point. But you tattooed it on my soul in a way I could never forget. #Quote by Aly Martinez
Mistake quotes by John F. Kennedy
#184. I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country's peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of "clear and present danger," the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public's need for national security. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Mistake quotes by Tim Fargo

Mistake quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#190. It is a mistake to seek in fantasies the key to concrete behaviour; for fantasies are created and cherished as fantasies.

Mistake quotes by A.G. Howard
#194. Still on my knees, I droop against Morpheus's thighs - a solid support. The cool leather of his pants cushions my cheek. I close my eyes. Yes ... I've been here before, held safely against him.
At first, I think I'm imagining it when he bends over to scoop me into his arms. But when the scent of licorice and warm skin surrounds me, I know it's real.
"You left," I accuse him, fighting to stay awake. "I was hurt ... and you left me."
"A mistake I vow on my life-magic to never make again." Even though he's cradling me close, his response sounds far away. But distance doesn't matter; he gave his word. I'll be holding him to it. #Quote by A.G. Howard
Mistake quotes by Haruki Murakami
#195. Still, this was on the order of a minor miracle, running across someone to whom you can express your feeling so clearly, so completely. Most people go their entire lives without meeting a person like that. It would have been mistake to label this "love". It was more like total empathy. #Quote by Haruki Murakami

Mistake quotes by Maurice Leblanc

Mistake quotes by Tony Stewart

Mistake quotes by Fernando Araujo Perdomo
