The Six Mistakes

Six Mistakes Mankind Keeps Making Century After Century:
1. Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others.
2. Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected.
3. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it.
4. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences.
5. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind.
6. Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC – 43BC)

  2. I love this quote! Do you know the source material? I wonder if it is from a lost work, or how it is attributable to Cicero. I have been looking for the context, and the original Latin, and so far have not found it! In any case, its wisdom is not diminished, regardless of the provenance. Nice simple post, thank you!
