Cicero, "The Six Mistakes of Man"

"The Six Mistakes of Man"

    * 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 preferences.
    * Neglecting development and refinement of the mind and not acquiring
the habit of reading and studying.
    * Attempting to compel other persons to believe and live as we do.

- Cicero
Attributed to Arthur F. Lenehan
