Errors Quotes By Karl Popper

Errors Quotes By William Hazlitt

True friendship is self-love at second hand; where, as in a flattering mirror we may see our virtues magnified and our errors softened, and where we may fancy our opinion of ourselves confirmed by an impartial and faithful witness. — William Hazlitt

Errors Quotes By Meg Howrey

It's a moment to learn. This was the thing about miscalculations, errors, and mistakes. You admitted them, you used them as teachable moments, and then you moved on. You didn't forget, but you didn't dwell. — Meg Howrey

Errors Quotes By Vance Havner

One of the greatest errors in the church today is the artificial distinction we have created between accepting Christ as Savior and confessing Him as Lord. We have made two experiences of it, but the New Testament makes them one. — Vance Havner

Errors Quotes By David Hume

Generally speaking, the errors in religion are dangerous; those in philosophy only ridiculous. — David Hume

It turns out that strong typing does not eliminate the need for careful testing. And I have found in my work that the sorts of errors that strong type checking finds are no the errors I worry about. — Douglas Crockford

Errors Quotes By Walter Gilbert

Error is far more common than fraud which probably comprises 1 percent or a tenth of a percent of the literature. — Walter Gilbert

Errors Quotes By David Howden

Analysis predating [Milton] Friedman's gave a different answer to question of the Fed's policy errors [during the Great Depression] and new scholarship is validating the old wisdom. It now appears that Friedman will be merely an interlude between the sounder analysis of economists contemporary to the Great Depression and those who have rediscovered their insights. --Jeff Herbener — David Howden

Errors Quotes By Yevgeny Zamyatin

Let the answers be wrong, let the philosophy be mistaken
errors are more valuable than truths: truth is of the machine, error is alive; truth reassures, error disturbs. — Yevgeny Zamyatin

Errors Quotes By Karl Kraus

Who is going to cast out an error to which he has given birth and replace it with an adopted truth? — Karl Kraus

Errors Quotes By Matt Chandler

There is no error, no addiction with more power than the Cross of Christ. — Matt Chandler

Errors Quotes By J.K. Rowling

The Sorting Hat is notorious for refusing to admit it has made a mistake in its sorting of a student. On those occasions when Slytherins behave altruistically or selflessly, when Ravenclaws flunk all their exams, when Hufflepuffs prove lazy yet academically gifted and when Gryffindors exhibit cowardice, the Hat steadfastly backs its original decision. On balance, however, the Hat has made remarkably few errors of judgement over the many centuries it has been at work. — J.K. Rowling

Errors Quotes By Anthony Lane

The obvious precedent for Beijing 2008 was the Berlin Olympics, in 1936. Both were showcases for a muscle-flexing nation, although Hitler made an elementary error when he chose not to dress his young National Socialists in lime-green catsuits laced with twinkling fairy lights. — Anthony Lane

Errors Quotes By Friedrich Nietzsche

Over immense periods of time the intellect produced nothing but errors. A few of these proved to be useful and helped to preserve the species: those who hit upon or inherited these had better luck in their struggle for themselves and their progeny. Such erroneous articles of faith ... include the following: that there are things, substances, bodies; that a thing is what it appears to be; that our will is free; that what is good for me is also good in itself. — Friedrich Nietzsche

Errors Quotes By D. V. Ager

It may be said of many palaeontologists, as Professor Hugh Trevor-Roper said recently of 18th century historians: "Their most serious error was to measure the past by the present". — D. V. Ager

Errors Quotes By Amy King


Errors Quotes By Thomas Paine

But from the errors of other nations let us learn wisdom, and lay hold of the present opportunity - to begin government at the right end. — Thomas Paine

Errors Quotes By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

One errs as long as one strives. — Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Errors Quotes By Confucius

To err and not reform, this may indeed be called error. — Confucius

Errors Quotes By Foundation For Inner Peace

Truth will correct all errors in my mind, And I will rest in Him Who is my Self. — Foundation For Inner Peace

Errors Quotes By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

What is surprising is not the magnitude of our forecast errors, but our absence of awareness of it. This is all the more worrisome when we engage in deadly conflicts: wars are fundamentally unpredictable (and we do not know it). Owing to this misunderstanding of the causal chains between policy and actions, we can easily trigger Black Swans thanks to aggressive ignorance-like a child playing with a chemistry kit. — Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Errors Quotes By Morris Kline

[The error in the teaching of mathematics is that] mathematics is expected either to be immediately attractive to students on its own merits or to be accepted by students solely on the basis of the teacher's assurance that it will be helpful in later life. [And yet,] mathematlcs is the key to understanding and mastering our physical, social and biological worlds. — Morris Kline

Errors Quotes By Laura Anderson

My bright and merry star,
Things I would tell our child if I could-

1. Love matters.
2. So does friendship.
3. Everyone makes mistakes, including you. Be generous with others' errors, and honest about your own.
4.Your mother is the truest, kindest, sweetest soul I've ever know. I love her. And I love you-for your own sake, not solely for your mother's.
Only then did she break. sinking to the floor, covering her head with her arms, Minuette huddled and wept. — Laura Anderson

Errors Quotes By John Ruskin

The more readily we admit the possibility of our own cherished convictions being mixed with error, the more vital and helpful whatever is right in them will become; and no error is so conclusively fatal as the idea that God will not allow us to err, though He has allowed all other men to do so. — John Ruskin

Errors Quotes By Alison Miller

We therapists often make inaccurate assumptions about people living with DID and DDNOS. They often appear to be "just like us," so we often assume their experience of life reflects our own. But this is profoundly untrue. It results in a communication gap, and, as a consequence, treatment errors. Because the dominant culture is one of persons with a single sense of self, most with multiple "selves" have learned to hide their multiplicity and imitate those who are singletons (that is, have a single, non-fragmented personality). Therapists who do not understand this sometimes describe their clients' alters without acknowledging their dissociation, saying only that they have different "moods." In overlooking dissociation, this description fails to recognize the essential truth of such disorders, and of the alters. It was difficult for me to comprehend what life was like for my first few dissociative clients. — Alison Miller

Errors Quotes By Gilbert K. Chesterton

It is human to err; and the only final and deadly error, among all our errors, is denying that we have ever erred. — Gilbert K. Chesterton

Errors Quotes By African Spir

As long as men will not be freed from their errors and delusions, humanity will not be able to go towards ("marcher vers", Fr.) the accomplishment of its true destinies. — African Spir

Errors Quotes By Samuel Taylor Coleridge

There are errors which no wise man will treat with rudeness while there is a probability that they may be the refraction of some great truth still below the horizon. — Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Errors Quotes By Georg Brandes

The stream of time sweeps away errors, and leaves the truth for the inheritance of humanity. — Georg Brandes

Errors Quotes By Benjamin Franklin

Were the offer made true, I would engage to run again, from beginning to end, the same career of life. All I would ask should be the privilege of an author, to correct, in a second edition, certain errors of the first. — Benjamin Franklin

Errors Quotes By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

We rather confess our moral errors, faults, and crimes than our ignorance. — Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Errors Quotes By Swami Vivekananda

One point of difference between Hinduism and other religions is that in Hinduism we pass from truth to truth-from a lower truth to a higher truth-and never from error to truth. — Swami Vivekananda

Errors Quotes By Elle Kennedy

You have ten minutes," he told me. "Ten minutes to think about what you did wrong and how bad you feel right now. Are you ready?"

He'd actually clicked a button on his watch and timed me, and for those ten minutes I brooded and sulked and wallowed in humiliation. I remembered the errors I'd made on the field and corrected them in my head. I imagined punching every player on the opposing team square in the mouth. And then Dad told me my time was up.

"There. It's over now," he said. "Now you look forward and figure out how you're going to get better. — Elle Kennedy

Errors Quotes By Mary Norris

The image of the copy editor is of someone who favours a rigid consistency, a mean person who enjoys pointing out other people's errors, a lowly person who is just starting on her career in publishing and is eager to make an impression, or, at worst, a bitter, thwarted person who wanted to be a writer and instead got stuck dotting the i's and crossing the t's and otherwise advancing the careers of other writers. — Mary Norris

Errors Quotes By Ernst Cassirer

Religion claims to be in possession of an absolute truth; but its history is a history of errors and heresies. It gives us the promise and prospect of a transcendent world - far beyond the limits of our human experience - and it remains human, all too human. — Ernst Cassirer

Errors Quotes By Ally Condie

I wonder if there have been other errors. — Ally Condie

Errors Quotes By Mary Baker Eddy

Prayer is not to be used as a confessional, to cancel sin. Such an error would impede true religion. Sin is forgiven only as it is destroyed by Christ - Truth and Light. — Mary Baker Eddy

Errors Quotes By James Madison

No error is more certain than the one proceeding from a hasty and superficial view of the subject. — James Madison

Errors Quotes By Bangambiki Habyarimana

I have seen great men err and err greatly — Bangambiki Habyarimana

Errors Quotes By Deyth Banger

I tried to code myself by applying each law and rule of the humans on me... what did it happen?

- More like a problems... errors... and glitches were on the way. — Deyth Banger

Errors Quotes By James Allen

Spiritual meditation is the pathway to Divinity. It is a mystic ladder which reaches from earth to heaven, from error to Truth, from pain to peace. — James Allen

Errors Quotes By John Milton

For truth is strong next to the Almighty. She needs no policies or stratagems or licensings to make her victorious. These are the shifts and the defences that error uses against her power. — John Milton

Errors Quotes By Eusebius

It is my purpose also to give the names and number and times of those who through love of innovation have run into the greatest errors, and, proclaiming themselves discoverers of knowledge falsely so-called [1 Timothy 6:20] have like fierce wolves unmercifully devastated the flock of Christ. — Eusebius

Errors Quotes By Gordon Moore

Most of what I learned as an entrepreneur was by trial and error. — Gordon Moore

Errors Quotes By Chris Cleave

Don't you think we shall all be kinder to one another? I hope one's class will matter less and one's convictions more. I hope we might be more inclined to pardon one another for our errors with both. — Chris Cleave

Errors Quotes By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

As countries get rich they start increasing education and the very educated people tend to not like trial and error, because they think they're obligated to use the body of knowledge they have. — Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Errors Quotes By William Shakespeare

Teach me, dear creature, how to think and speak; Lay open to my earthy-gross conceit, Smother'd in errors, feeble, shallow, weak, The folded meaning of your words' deceit. — William Shakespeare

Errors Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

Our science, so called, is always more barren and mixed with error than our sympathies. — Henry David Thoreau

Errors Quotes By Voltaire

In short, the alphabet was the origin of all man's knowledge, and of all his errors. — Voltaire

Errors Quotes By John Stossel

We like to think we're superior to the people who, centuries ago, burned 'witches' for no better reason than a neighbor's belief that his crop failure or impotence was caused by that woman's action. But reporters are still prone to the same mental errors that caused these killings: seeing patterns where there are none, finding causes where there is only coincidence, ignoring our sources' political agendas and turning scanty evidence into panic. — John Stossel

Errors Quotes By Gerd Gigerenzer

Cognition requires going beyond the information given, to make bets and therefore to risk errors. — Gerd Gigerenzer

Errors Quotes By Ugo Betti

Justice! Custodian of the world! But since the world errs, justice must be custodian of the world's errors. — Ugo Betti

Errors Quotes By James Madison

The most that the Convention could do in such a situation, was to avoid the errors suggested by the past experience of other countries, as well as of our own; and to provide a convenient mode of rectifying their own errors, as future experience may unfold them. — James Madison

Errors Quotes By Bret Michaels

I want to tell the story. Mostly, when you see rock movies, it has to be this over-the-top thing. I want to give people a Bret Michaels movie where they see that my life is a comedy of errors. I also want to show my fans how to get through the kind of troubles that would leave most people flat on the floor. — Bret Michaels

Errors Quotes By Plato

The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul. Let no one persuade you to cure the head until he has first given you his soul to be cured, for this is the great error of our day, that physicians first separate the soul from the body. — Plato

Errors Quotes By Epictetus

What then, is it not possible to be free from faults? It is not possible; but this is possible: to direct your efforts incessantly to being faultess. For we must be content if by never remitting this attention we shall escape at least a few errors. When you have said "Tomorrow I will begin to attend," you must be told that you are saying this: "Today I will be shameless, disregardful of time and place, mean;it will be in the power of others to give me pain, today I will be passionate and envious.
See how many evil things you are permitting yourself to do. If it is good to use attention tomorrow, how much better is it to do so today? If tomorrow it is in your interest to attend, much more is it today, that you may be able to do so tomorrow also, and may not defer it again to the third day. — Epictetus

Errors Quotes By Gregory Bateson

We create the world that we perceive, not because there is no reality outside our heads, but because we select and edit the reality we see to conform to our beliefs about what sort of world we live in. The man who believes that the resources of the world are infinite, for example, or that if something is good for you then the more of it the better, will not be able to see his errors, because he will not look for evidence of them. For a man to change the basic beliefs that determine his perception - his epistemological premises - he must first become aware that reality is not necessarily as he believes it to be. Sometimes the dissonance between reality and false beliefs reaches a point when it becomes impossible to avoid the awareness that the world no longer makes sense. Only then is it possible for the mind to consider radically different ideas and perceptions. — Gregory Bateson

Errors Quotes By Michael Crichton

Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward - reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know. — Michael Crichton

Errors Quotes By Carl Jung

Error is just as important a condition of life's progress as truth — Carl Jung

Errors Quotes By Rajneesh

There are a few things that can be done only by experiencing them. Love is one of them. There is no way to learn it; you have to do it. And by trial and error one learns. — Rajneesh

Errors Quotes By Rick Bass

His errors and failures have not traveled the same distance as his successes. — Rick Bass

Errors Quotes By Karl Popper

The idea of self-emancipation through knowledge, which was the basic idea of the Enlightenment, is in itself a powerful enemy of fanaticism; for it makes us try hard to detach ourselves or even to dissociate ourselves from our own ideas (in order to look at them critically) instead of identifying ourselves with them. And the recognition of the sometimes overwhelming historical power of ideas should teach us how important it is to free ourselves from the overpowering influence of false or wrong ideas. In the interests of the quest for truth and of our liberation from errors we have to train ourselves to view our own favourite ideas just as critically as those we oppose. — Karl Popper

Errors Quotes By Hans-Peter Durr

Human beings should only use technology which if the worst case happens, it leads to an acceptable damage. Definitely nuclear energy is not in that category. I want an industrial world where people are allowed to make errors. Because human creativity has to do with being allowed to make errors. We want an error-friendly environment. — Hans-Peter Durr

Errors Quotes By Victor Hugo

Dark Error's other hidden side is truth. — Victor Hugo

Errors Quotes By Umakant

The most of the serious errors happen in our life,when we ignore our owns pain for us!! — Umakant

Errors Quotes By Robert K. Merton

The self-fulfilling prophecy is, in the beginning, a false definition of the situation evoking a new behavior which makes the originally false conception come true. The specious validity of the self-fulfilling prophecy perpetuates a reign of error. For the prophet will cite the actual course of events as proof that he was right from the very beginning. — Robert K. Merton

Errors Quotes By Jacob Bronowski

Science is a very human form of knowledge. We are always at the brink of the known; we always feel forward for what is to be hoped. Every judgment in science stands on the edge of error and is personal. Science is a tribute to what we can know although we are fallible. — Jacob Bronowski

Errors Quotes By William Deresiewicz

We proceed by doubt, by trial and error, by resisting the impulse to lunge after certainty. — William Deresiewicz

Errors Quotes By Charles Dickens

It was a long and gloomy night that gathered on me, haunted by the ghosts of many hopes, of many dear remembrances, many errors, many unavailing sorrows and regrets. — Charles Dickens

Errors Quotes By Guillaume-Thomas Francois Raynal

There is an infinity of political errors which, being once adopted, become principles. — Guillaume-Thomas Francois Raynal

Errors Quotes By James Monroe

The movements of a great nation are connected in all their parts. If errors have been committed they ought to be corrected; if the policy is sound it ought to be supported. — James Monroe

Errors Quotes By Jim Rohn

Your philosophy determines whether you will go for the disciplines or continue the errors. — Jim Rohn

Errors Quotes By Alister E. McGrath

It was not long before the possibly serious translation errors uncovered in the Vulgate threatened to force revision of existing church teachings. Erasmus pointed out some of these in 1516. An excellent example is found in the Vulgate translation of the opening words of Jesus's ministry in Galilee (Matthew 4:17) as: "do penance, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." This translation creates a direct link between the coming of God's kingdom and the sacrament of penance. Erasmus pointed out that the original Greek text should be translated as: "repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand." Where the Vulgate seemed to refer to an outward practice (the sacrament of penance), Erasmus insisted that the reference was to an inward psychological attitude - that of "being repentant. — Alister E. McGrath

Errors Quotes By William Alexander

Things could be worse. Suppose your errors were counted and published everyday, like those of a baseball player. — William Alexander

Errors Quotes By Jim Murphy

The fire was barely fifteen minutes old. What followed was a series of fatal errors that set the fire free and doomed the city to a fiery death. — Jim Murphy

Errors Quotes By Karl Popper

Better our hypotheses die for our errors than ourselves. — Karl Popper

Errors Quotes By Rajneesh

It is not that the intellect sometimes misunderstands. Rather, the intellect always misunderstands. It is not that the intellect sometimes errs, it is that the intellect is the error. — Rajneesh

Errors Quotes By Michael Bassey Johnson

Errors were not only meant to be committed by fools. — Michael Bassey Johnson

Errors Quotes By Jeri Smith-Ready

The future is as far from perfect and as full of errors as this baseball game, but at this moment, it's all mine.
And I guess that's something — Jeri Smith-Ready

Errors Quotes By C.S. Lewis

And since we cannot deceive the whole human race all the time, it is most important thus to cut every generation off from all others; for where learning makes a free commerce between the ages there is always the danger that the characteristic errors of one may be corrected by the characteristic truths of another. — C.S. Lewis

Errors Quotes By Jon Meacham

Cherish therefore the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention.1 Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. - THOMAS JEFFERSON — Jon Meacham

Errors Quotes By Frank Herbert

The most persistent principles in the universe are accident and error. — Frank Herbert

Errors Quotes By Max Anders

Error is most painful when it is found inside the family. — Max Anders

Errors Quotes By Lucian Leape

The single greatest impediment to error prevention in the medical industry is that we punish people for making mistakes, — Lucian Leape

Errors Quotes By Emanuel Lasker

Without error, there is no brilliancy. — Emanuel Lasker

Errors Quotes By Aberjhani

The study of history empowers nations and individuals with an ability to avoid errors of the past and lay foundations for victories in the future. — Aberjhani

Errors Quotes By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Error is to truth as sleep is to waking. I have observed that one turns, as if refreshed, from error back to truth. — Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Errors Quotes By Spencer W. Kimball

To be mediocre, when only application and diligence would have netted superiority, is an error akin to sin. — Spencer W. Kimball

Errors Quotes By Octavia E. Butler

After a few years of watching the human species make things unnecessarily difficult for itself I have little hope that it will do anything more than survive and continue its cycle of errors. — Octavia E. Butler

Errors Quotes By Tasha Tudor

When I'm working in the barn or house I often think of all the errors I've made in my life. But then I quickly put that behind me and think of water lilies. They will always eradicate unpleasant thoughts. Or goslings are equally comforting in their own way. — Tasha Tudor

Errors Quotes By Jimmy Carter

When I was president, I announced and I still maintain that I can live with Roe v. Wade. I did everything I possibly could as president under that ruling, which I don't think ought to be changed, to minimize the need for abortions. I think every abortion is a result of a horrible series of errors on the part of people involved. — Jimmy Carter

Errors Quotes By Rene Descartes

But as soon as I had finished my course of study, at which time it is usual to be admitted to the ranks of the well educated, I completely changed my opinion, for I found myself bogged down in so many doubts and errors, that it seemed to me that having set out to become learned, I had derived no benefit from my studies, other than that of progressively revealing to myself how ignorant I was. — Rene Descartes

Errors Quotes By Ayn Rand

What is the nature of the guilt that your teachers call his Original Sin? What are the evils man acquired when he fell from a state they consider perfection? Their myth declares that he ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge
he acquired a mind and became a rational being. It was the knowledge of good and evil
he became a moral being. He was sentenced to earn his bread by his labor
he became a productive being. He was sentenced to experience desire
he acquired the capacity of sexual enjoyment. The evils for which they damn him are reason, morality, creativeness, joy
all the cardinal values of his existence. It is not his vices that their myth of man's fall is desired to explain and condemn, it is not his errors that they hold as his guilt, but the essence of his nature as man. Whatever he was
that robot of the Garden of Eden, who existed without mind, without values, without labor, without love
he was not man. — Ayn Rand

Errors Quotes By Ronald Reagan

One of mankind's problems is we keep committing the same errors. — Ronald Reagan

Errors Quotes By Gladys Mitchell

Such an error, one finds, to do things for the best. They usually seem to be such unpleasant things. — Gladys Mitchell

Errors Quotes By Rumi

Know that the mirror of the heart is boundless ... Here, opinions become silent, otherwise they will lead you into errors ... for the heart is sacred - even more the heart is sacredness itself. — Rumi
