COMITTING MISTAKES: a rare privilege


My father always says 'Only those who do something or work have the privilege to make mistakes'. In this world there are two kind of people one who work and others who don't. Those who work are not afraid to make mistakes and once they learn from their mistakes they are on their way to success. Those who believe in sitting can never taste the pleasure of enjoying success because they are too afraid to commit mistakes. Shakespeare once said those who remain silent during a conversation pretending they are the wisest are usually the people who know nothing. It's true that silence is a virtue, but not always.
Also we need to remember one thing: Never to repeat a mistake. Repeating a mistake is a sin which one cannot dare to commit, so always make new mistakes, because it gives you a whole new experience.
This is my most humble request to all those sitting in their couches, and lying low to get up and be the part of this privileged group . So next time someone laughs at you for making a mistake, then no need to be disappointed. Just remember one thing: You are a privileged lot, which he is not!!!

You say that people who stay silent during the conversation pretend that they are the wisest. This may not be the case as the person in question may not be interested in the topic of discussion or he may be ignorant about the topic or he simply dosent approve the topic. What do you say?

dear DD
i never said people who remain silent pretend to be wisest.. i just picked that line from Merchant of Venice.
all i wanted to sat was its not always correct to reamin silent....
if you are not interested in the topic of discussion, why you cant simply walk away....
