We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing. George Bernard Shaw
Don’t fear failure.
but low aim,
is the crime.
In great attempts
It is glorious
even to fail.
we can avoid
— Dennis Waitley
The greatest reward for a man’s failure is not necessarily the consequent success, but what he becomes by it.
— Ogwo David Emenike
No human ever became interesting by not failing. The more you fail and recover and improve, the better you are as a person. Ever meet someone who’s ALWAYS had EVERYTHING work out for them with ZERO struggle? They usually have the depth of a puddle. Or they don’t exist.
Being human means you will make mistakes. And you will make mistakes, because failure is God’s way of moving you in another direction.
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.
The things which hurt, instruct.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
One of the reasons people stop learning is that they become less and less willing to risk failure.
John W. Gardner
