MISTAKES OF MEN

The delusion that individual advancement is made by crushing others.

The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected.

Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it.

Refusing to set aside trivial preference.

Neglecting the development and refinement of the mind and so not acquiring the habit of reading and studying.

Attempting to compel other persons to believe and live as we do so.
