I've come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
Alexander Sergeievich Pushkin
I've lived to bury my desires,/ And see my dreams corrode with rust;/ Now all that's left are fruitless fires/ That burn my empty heart to dust.
Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.
Many of life's failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Many people seem to think that success in one area can compensate for failure in other areas. But can it really?... True effectiveness requires balance.
Men are failures, not because they are stupid, but because they are not sufficiently impassioned.
Most people achieved their greatest success one step beyond what looked like their greatest failure.
My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.
