Today’s Quotation: Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) – on Human Mistakes


The quotation is from the novel, Anne of Green Gables, Ch. ” A New Departure in Flavorings:”

Marilla, isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”
“I’ll warrant you’ll make plenty in it,” said Marilla. “I never saw your beat for making mistakes, Anne.”
“Yes, and well I know it,” admitted Anne mournfully. “But have you ever noticed one encouraging thing about me, Marilla? I never make the same mistake twice.”
“I don’t know as that’s much benefit when you’re always making new ones.”
“Oh, don’t you see, Marilla?  There must be a limit to the mistakes one person can make, and when I get to the end of them, then I’ll be through with them. That’s a very comforting thought.”

My take on this:  I believe in degrees, increments, scales: Some mistakes cannot be “balanced even in death…How else would we remember the people who went into history as infamous, never to be forgotten. All we can do striving to err cautiously, to try and correct those errors we can and pray that the others will not make us, upon passing on, unforgivably unforgettable.
