Quotes and Sayings about Failures & Mistakes

Mistakes are like invisible signposts that guide us through the labyrinth of life. They show us that we have bravely attempted, and that errors are human. From them arise lessons that make us stronger. We should not hide from our mistakes, but accept them and learn from them. They are not the end, but the beginning of new insights and growth. Each mistake holds the opportunity to understand ourselves better and discover paths we didn't see before. So let us not fear mistakes but embrace them as chances for growth and self-discovery.

But there are mistakes that are necessary. Sometimes you have to die a little bit to get back to live a little longer.
