The six mistakes of man (Wisdom from philosopher Cicero)

The Roman philosopher and statesman, Cicero, said this some 2,000 years ago, and it is still true.

The six mistakes of man:

  1. The delusion that personal gain is made by crushing others.
  2. The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected.
  3. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it.
  4. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences.
  5. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind, and not acquiring the habit of reading and study.
  6. Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
