According to John C. Maxwell, a well known author, speaker and pastor that mainly writes books about leadership, “A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them and strong enough to correct them.” Maxwell understands that as a person, it is important to know that everyone makes mistakes, however, what makes these blunders worth it, is how someone reacts to it. This idea agrees with the main themes of the novel The Kite Runner. In The Kite Runner, the author Khaled Hosseini uses the main character Amir, to reveal that even if people make mistakes, so long as they understand what they have done, finally regret it and attempt to find their personal redemption, they could relieve themselves of their guilt.
