Aphorisms IV

I like my current header aphorism so I am not going to change it yet.

However, I almost did with this one from Havellock Ellis. It is poignant. It has no wit. It verges on the Rumfeldesque. But it merits quotation.

"we seldom learn to go right except by going wrong, and we are often most wrong when we think we are most right".

... particularly given my recent comments on "youthful follies".
