~ A few quotes ~


To make mistakes is human; to stumble is commonplace; to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity.


                      -William Arthur Ward


 


 


 


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. By prizing heartfulness above faultlessness, we may reap more from our effort because we’re more likely to be changed by it. We learn and grow and are transformed not so much by what we do but by why and how we do it.


                         -Sharon Salzberg
