“You don't learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing and falling over.”

Who said it:  Richard Branson

He is best known as the founder of Virgin Group. And I always remember him for his crazy antics, like when he ditched his hot air balloon in the ocean.

Why I like it:

Every now and then – well, okay, maybe a little too often – I get tripped up by following the rules a little too closely. Being in business is as much about learning from others as it is about creating your own path, making your own mistakes, and learning from them.
