My Daily Affirmation

"Strong  people make as many mistakes as weak people. Difference is that strong people admit their mistakes, laugh at them, and learn from them. That is how they become strong." – Richard Needham 

"Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once and a while, or the light won't come in."

Alan Alda
Actor, Writer and Director

How true. Alan Alda had an interesting life, didn't he? He always played the joker, but he's very insightful. Great quote!

Thank you Amy and Gwei,
I loved these quotes, I just had to post them. Yes Amy, he lives an interesting life. I couldn't agree with you more.

Both are great quotes, but I think I need to take Needham's quote to heart. I hate to admit when I'm wrong. For whatever reason it makes me feel weak. But in reality, it takes a strong person to admit their mistakes (and laugh at them).

Thank you Korren for the comment, That's how I learn, by my mistakes and other, many of crow feathers- phew.
