“Mistakes are Meant to be Made.” Neil Degrasse Tyson 

 4. Neil deGrasse Tyson, 58

As told to Men’s Journal when asked what advice he’d give himself when he was younger: “There’s no time I would go back and say, ‘Do this differently.’ Experiencing mistakes has been devalued in our culture. They want people to make the right decisions at all times. Well, there’s a saying in research science: If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not on the frontier of discovery. I’m the sum of the correct decisions I’ve made and the incorrect decisions I’ve made. Each one of those shapes the wisdom that I carry today.”
