#BooksNotJust4Xmas – Quotation 4

Music is full of important and memorable messages.  You could include your favourite lines from songs on your ‘Wallpaper’!


Here is a quotation about the importance of getting things WRONG – you can’t grow and develop without mistakes.  Listen to the song!


‘I don’t get many things right the first time,
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles,
And falls brought me here’
‘The Luckiest’ by Ben Folds
