Positive inspiration from Failure

Failure is the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently.

Henry Ford

A minute's success pays the failure of years.

Robert Browning (1812-89), English poet

A failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.

Hoshang N. Akhtar

The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.

Abraham Lincoln, American President

Apparent failure may hold in its rough shell the germs of a success that will blossom in time, and bear fruit throughout eternity.

Frances Watkins Harper

Don't be afraid to fail. Don't waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It's OK to fail. If you're not failing, you're not growing.

H. Stanley Judd

A person carries their success or their failure with them...it does not depend on outside conditions.

Rasph Waldo

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

Robert Francis Kennedy

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is a beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is life, fight for it!

Mother Teresa
