      But maybe he wants to tell us to be careful while pursuing our goals and performing or deeds as sometimes carelessness creep in if we are too defiant to admit that we can commit a mistake.
      Maybe he wants to tell us to at least consider the possibility that our carelessness cannot just cost us this mere attempt but can also jeopardise our reputation.
      See you are totally right but in this human world people may not remember the thousand thing you did right but just one thing you did wrong. This is how it is!
      Anyways thanks for your insight! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
