There are two kinds of mistakes. Those we can rectify and those we cannot. In either case, it is pointless to worry about it.

Wow. I wouldn't necessarily stop to disagree, but that's not a useful kind of conclusion.

There are multiple kinds of mistakes, including those we learn from, those we fail to learn from and repeat, and those we insist we aren't making at all, and people should stop telling us we're doing it wrong. That third sort partakes of the nature of both of the first two.

Now, if by worry you mean agonize, that depends.

Sometimes we should regret or attempt to ameliorate the mistakes we were responsible for.

Say, this doesn't by any chance correspond to Afghanistan/ Iraq, does it? I'd add Vietnam, but that sort of begs the question.
