Herbert Hoover's Quote on the Relationship between Hindsight and Foresight.
Hindsight is always more certain than foresight. . . . But the hindsight gained from being "singed by fire" is good training for acquiring foresight.
Herbert Hoover and Hugh Gibson,, The Problems of Lasting Peace
But only if we learn from those mistakes that "singe" us, and as Tom Watson expected . . . don't make the same mistake twice.
