My mother always said: "The man who never made a mistake, never made anything".

So in opting not to respond to this I basically can't go wrong.

Wait, did that count as a response?

En efecto, es mejor intentar algo aunque se falle, porque al menos se generará un aprendizaje, pero si ni siquiera se intenta algo, no habrá errores pero tampoco crecimiento.

Read the context from Conrad's : An Outcast of the Islands

Part 3 - Chapter 2

"Not I!" exclaimed Lingard. "That's all over, I am afraid. Great pity. They will suffer for it. He will squeeze them. Great pity. Damn it! I feel so sorry for them if I had the Flash here I would try force. Eh! Why not? However, the poor Flash is gone, and there is an end of it. Poor old hooker. Hey, Almayer? You made a voyage or two with me. Wasn't she a sweet craft? Could make her do anything but talk. She was better than a wife to me. Never scolded. Hey? . . . And to think that it should come to this. That I should leave her poor old bones sticking on a reef as though I had been a damned fool of a southern-going man who must have half a mile of water under his keel to be safe! Well! well! It's only those who do nothing that make no mistakes, I suppose. But it's hard. Hard."

No mistake and no use at the same time. What is the purpose of existence in their case then?

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.

the biggest mistake you could ever make is being afraid to make one.

Surely, those who do nothing stand no chance whatsoever of making any mistake.

If you do nothing you don't get ahead. To make mistakes is to gain knowledge! Knowledge is power! Through knowledge and hard work is how this great country (USA) came to be!
