Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
JAMES JOYCE

I would like to say I made a mistake once, but I was mistaken.

Just joking. I’ve made loads of mistakes. No doubt I’ll make many more.

I wish I could say I’ve never made the same mistake twice, but I have. Sometimes I’m a slow learner. At some point I seem to discover that I’m getting is the same result over and over, but I wouldn’t call that a great discovery.

Oh well. I’m happy to benefit from other people’s discoveries which have come about because of mistakes. Chocolate Chip Cookies were actually invented by mistake, by Ruth Wakefield when she ran out of baker’s chocolate.

I don’t know if that was the kind of discovery James Joyce meant, but it works for me.
