Alexander Pope in Wikipedia
To err is human, to forgive divine.
For fools rush in where angels fear to tread
Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll; charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.

I'm embarrassed when I see Brits abroad; they have their tops off, wear flip flops, and shout at the top of their voices.
It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness
James Matthew Barrie
