Failure and Success
"If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves."
Thomas A.Edison 1847-1931
Maturity: Doing what you're supposed to do when you're supposed to do it regardless of how you feel.
Success doesn't come to you . . . you go to it.
- Marva Collins
Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.
- Fred Shero
If you stop every time a dog barks, your road will never end.
- Arabian Proverb
In order for you to profit from your mistakes, you have to go out and make some.
Success doesn't mean the absence of failures; it means the attainment of ultimate objectives. It means winning the war, not every battle.
- Edward Bliss
Success does not consist in never making mistakes, but in never making them a second time.
- George Bernard Shaw
The true measure of your worth includes all the benefits others have gained from your success.
- Cullen Hightower
To laugh much; to win respect of intelligent persons and the affections of children; to earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give one's self; to leave the world a little better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition.; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm, and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived--this is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
