The failure of The Cable Guy impacted my career. I had to start writing and acting again.
The Conservatives are a confusing lot. They first denied climate change was a serious issue and then suggested strengthening the nuclear industry as a solution to it. They oppose the European Union, but support joining North American Free Trade Agreement, despite its obvious failure.
Failure is fantastic, because you meet yourself and get to know your limitations. This is how I express myself, and I can't do it any other way.
Failure, it is thought, is what sells, and what people want to hear and read about. I am not so sure.
African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population but comprise 32 percent of patients treated for kidney failure, giving them a kidney failure rate that is 4.2 times greater than that of white Americans.
I think one of the biggest political failures, and the biggest social failures, over the past few years has been the failure of empathy; not being able to look at the other person down the street.
The failure of Lehman may have allowed the government to do more to prop up the economy than it otherwise could.
Andrew Ross Sorkin
War, except in self-defense, is a failure of moral imagination.
Washington, D.C. is what is broken, not the immigration policies. We have good laws. We have people suffer every day because of government's failure to enforce the law and be respectful to the process we have. We have a pathway to citizenship already in place.

Failure. It doesn't exist. 'Failure' is just what happens when we lose perspective.
Beside every great success are the seeds of enormous failure. In every failure, there's the opportunity seeds of great success. They're not miles apart. So if they're that close together, and if you're really working, you're always gonna have that likelihood that something's not going to work.

My poor father would have heart failure and screech to a halt, and we'd leap out and go and explore.
The dumb-manager theory of business problems just didn't hold water for me. There had to be a deeper reason why smart people would make decisions that lead to failure.

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
