Ah, I have so many quotes in my private collection of quotes about mistakes. Let me list a few here which I think make much sense in the context here:
"If You're Not Making Mistakes, then You're Not Doing Anything." by John Wooden, basketball player
"An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field." by Niels Bohr
"We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery. " by Samuel Smiles
"You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself." by Sam Levenson
"Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing.
Edison replied very confidently, Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We know that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb.
