Thomas A. Edison
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

I was born full grown in the middle of a hurricane and an earthquake on 10 September 1954, 12.52 P.M. When I found out that I had missed lunch, I gave such a shout that the Earth stopped and spun backwards two days. That's why I celebrate my birthday on 8 September.
I like missing someone and being missed; I like looking forward to seeing him again. I like getting emails and texts with lots of xxx's.

I always think about what I missed, and I think that was my driving force - never be satisfied with what I've done.
