Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.
Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive.
I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right.
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
One's only rival is one's own potentialities. One's only failure is failing to live up to one's own possibilities. In this sense, every man can be a king, and must therefore be treated like a king.
You will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success. This is done by making an affirmation which 'clicks.'
Florence Scovel Shinn
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.
For every failure, there's an alternative course of action. You just have to find it. When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.
Mary Kay Ash
All the world loves a good loser.

We failed, but in the good providence of God apparent failure often proves a blessing.
Robert E. Lee
Do not blame anybody for your mistakes and failures.
If you learn from defeat, you haven't really lost.
My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.

Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.
Norman Vincent Peale
There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.
In the business world today, failure is apparently not an option. We need to change this attitude toward failure - and celebrate the idea that only by falling on our collective business faces do we learn enough to succeed down the road.
Our best successes often come after our greatest disappointments.
Henry Ward Beecher
When I was young, I observed that nine out of ten things I did were failures. So I did ten times more work.
George Bernard Shaw
Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.
Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.
We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse.
They who have conquered doubt and fear have conquered failure.
Do not let your ambitions become a sanctuary for your failures.
Bryant H. McGill
The only risk of failure is promotion.
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
