Never made a mistake Einstein Quote

Woodward English Quote

The Quote

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

– Albert Einstein


Mistake (noun) = an error

What does it mean?

Einstein is saying that if you have never made a mistake before then you haven’t done anything new.
He is saying that doing things wrong and making mistakes isn’t a bad thing, it is simply part of the learning process. In effect he is saying that the only person who has never made a mistake is a person who has never done anything, i.e. no one!

What new thing have you done that you did wrong the first time?
Was it a big mistake or a small one?
Have you learnt from it?

    making mistakes it is drawing you closer to fully understand and master any thing. the more mistake you make on learning some thing, the greater you become on mastering it.
