I Was Born To Make Mistakes


. . Not To Fake Perfection.

quote by Drake

(Canadian rapper Drake? Old essayist Nathan Drake?).

I found this on empress2inspire ‘s blog here.

She also quotes Canadian singer Leonard Cohen:

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That’s how the light gets in.

and she improves the old saying “practice makes perfect” to

“practice makes progress”. Much better.

Go and check her out.

It's about life, marriage, raising kids, paddling rivers, travel in Africa . . . re-posting thoughts written over decades - at random, I'm afraid.

One thought on “I Was Born To Make Mistakes

  1. I love that line – it’s the cracks that let the light in. Read Thomas Merson who lost his mother at 6 and from this deep wound later found amazing insights into life. He died in 1968
