Quote of the day 9th October 2021 "No one is immune to failure"

"No one is immune to failure,
All have tasted the bitterness of defeat and disappointment

A warrior must not dwell on that failure, but must learn from it and continue on.

But not all learn from their errors.

That is something which those who seek to dominate other know very well, and know how to exploit.

If an opponent has failed once at a logic problem, his opponent will first try the same type of problem,  hoping the failure will be repeated.

What the manipulator sometimes forgets, and what a warrior must always remember, is that no two sets of circumstances are alike.

The would-be victim may have learned from the mistake."

(Grand Admiral Thrawn, from Star Wars Rebels)

Good advice for a politician or election candidate as much as for a sailor, soldier or airman.
