This provision might save many persons from misery, who by some unexpected turn of fortune have lost all their means.
P. T. Barnum
You don't learn from successes; you don't learn from awards; you don't learn from celebrity; you only learn from wounds and scars and mistakes and failures. And that's the truth.

One of the hard lessons to learn in life is that there are some things you can control and some things you can't. If you want a short recipe for being frustrated and miserable, this is it: focus on things you can't control.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
