Quote of the Day

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.
Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.
Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.
Thomas A. Edison
We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse.
My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.
Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive.
The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It's best to have failure happen early in life. It wakes up the Phoenix bird in you so you rise from the ashes.
Indecision and delays are the parents of failure.
But man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated.
If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative.
Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.
Failure is impossible.
Susan B. Anthony
Success is not built on success. It's built on failure. It's built on frustration. Sometimes its built on catastrophe.
Through perseverance many people win success out of what seemed destined to be certain failure.
Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.
Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.
Our best successes often come after our greatest disappointments.
Henry Ward Beecher
There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.
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.
A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.
We failed, but in the good providence of God apparent failure often proves a blessing.
Robert E. Lee
It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
