No One Is Perfect That's Why Pencils Have Erasers

489This is the marvellous Tyla, who took her own picture. She invited members of the Flickr FGR group to take part in SOTM and there were over 150 pictures posted in the SOTM Flickr group within a few hours as a result.

She wrote :”Mr F (my Business Studies teacher in secondary school) would always do two things: 1) come in hungover Sunday morning and tell us to sit quietly while he slept on his desk (I grew up in Dubai so Thu and Fri were my weekends and somehow we weren't bothered by the fact he was often still drunk first thing in the morning).

"2) throw your exam paper at you and tell you that very thing! No one is perfect that's why pencils have erasers. That's probably the only thing I learnt in my 'O' level Business Studies class... I find myself saying it at least once a week.

"We all make mistakes and just as long we learn from them it's alright. Taken in my old room in my parents' house in Gdynia, Poland.” Her Flickr page is here.

"Lovely photo and a great quote...we should remember it more when we make mistakes. But to learn from them and not need the eraser is also good."
