To err is human, to forgive is divine. – Alexander Pope

All humans make mistakes. The ability to admit mistake requires maturity. It is also a show of vulnerability.

The inability to admit mistake is a character flaw.

The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance. – Samuel Butler

The pretense of infallibility is a not a plus. It diminishes femininity. It not only reveals weakness (insecurity) but also arrogance and plain dishonesty.

This is not a good look.

It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities. – Sir Josiah Stamp

Any path (beliefs or actions) that does not get you, or anyone who follows it, in the place that you want to be is the wrong path.

The longer that you continue on a wrong path refusing to admit mistake and/or change course, the more your intelligence, self respect, and value is questioned.

The more loud and wrong that you are, the more quickly you are dismissed.
