When he makes a mistake, he realizes it.
Having realized it, he admits it.
Having admitted it, he corrects it.

He thinks of his enemy
as the shadow that he himself casts.”
Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

“The world is full of men who want to be right, when actually the secret of a man's strength and his pathway to true honor is his ability to admit fault when he has failed. God wants to fill the church with men who can say they are wrong when THEY ARE WRONG. A man who is willing to humble himself before God and his family and say:"I was wrong." will find that his family has all the confidence in the world in him and will much more readily follow him. If he stubbornly refuses to repent or admit he was wrong, their confidence in him and in his leadership erodes.”
Jim Anderson, Unmasked: Exposing the Cultural Sexual Assault

(5) over-solicitude for his men, which exposes him to worry and trouble.”
Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Don't deal with your enemy, deal with the satan that sponsors them!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Science can give us knowledge, but it cannot give us wisdom. Nor can religion, until it puts aside nonsense and distraction and becomes itself again.”
Marilynne Robinson
