Wrong is wrong, no matter how one may wish it otherwise.

That's more of a mathematical attitude. English has rules, yes, but they're a little more flexible in everyday usage. And artistic efforts. I mean, you wouldn't criticize "Fats" Waller for not calling his song "I Am Not Misbehaving", would you?

Wrong is always wrong, but sometimes there are more important things than being right.

That's one of my hardest-learned lessons, still in progress.

Rules are very important, but sometimes the most compassionate response is the one that breaks the rules. That's what you need to make a judgment call, not just fall back on the word of law.
