{December 15, 2013}   Inspiring quote

Some time ago, I attended a talk by a neuropsychoeducator here in Argentina, and one of the topics of her talk was error-recognition. There was something she said that I found really inspiring and always share with my students since then. In English, it would be something like:

“Befriending mistakes and failure is the best that you can do. If you are perfect, you will only notice the many things you still need to change.”

It works (for me) as a motivational quote before and after testing students, since it works as food for talk and very interesting debates arise from it.

Do you have any thought provoking quote to use in the classroom?
