Quote by Eric Shinseki
I have spent a lifetime watching kids make mistakes because they were not trained or well led or properly motivated to do well. I never faulted the kids rather, I saw opportunity to train, to motivate, to improve leadership - not to punish the individual.
This quote highlights the perspective of the speaker, who believes that when children make mistakes, it is not their fault but rather indicates a lack of proper guidance, training, and motivation. The speaker emphasizes their role as an opportunity seeker to provide training, motivation, and improved leadership instead of punishment for the individual's mistakes. It reflects a compassionate approach of understanding and responding to the shortcomings of children by focusing on their growth and development rather than blaming them for their errors.
From up high where I was, you could shout anything you liked at them. I tried. They made me sick, the whole lot of them. I hadn't the nerve to tell them so in the daytime, to their face, but up there it was safe. Help! Help! I shouted, just to see if it would have any effect on them. None whatsoever. Those people were pushing life and night and day in front of them. Life hides everything from people. Their own noise prevents them from hearing anything else. They couldn't care less. The bigger and taller the city, the less they care. Take it from me. I've tried. It's a waste of time.
