“The worst kind of mistake is an accidental one.”

Oscar Wilde 

Actually I just made that up, as far as I know, but it has the right ring. It’s an example of the figure of speech called antithesis, and Oscar was rather good at coming up with them. Here's a couple I like

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

“I can resist everything except temptation.”
