One of the things my service in Iraq did give me was this freedom from fear of failure or any kind of expectations that I had to take a standard path.
I'm not an artist, and I want to take risks, and when the possibility of failure occurs, it's because the idea is all exciting or interesting as a high wire act, and sometimes you've got to fall off, just by virtue of the fact that you're constantly trying to evolve and do new things.
My film directorial career has been nothing but repetition of one failure after another!

The success or failure of a life, as far as posterity goes, seems to lie in the more or less luck of seizing the right moment of escape.
If the whole process of learning from failure means discarding stuff that's not working, but in fact, our natural reaction is to keep going, to throw more money behind it, to throw more emotional energy behind it... that's a real problem.
Over the next four years, we will be bold. We will be willing to experiment. We will not fear failure.
Nothing fails like failure.

Arthur C. Danto
Tyranny is increasingly unsustainable in this post-cold-war era. It is doomed to failure. But it must be prodded to exit the stage with a whimper - not the bang that extremists long for.
Ninety-nine percent of pilots that go up never have engine failure, and the 1 percent that do usually land it. But if you're up in the air and something goes wrong, you pull that parachute, and the whole plane goes down slowly.

I don't think anybody should do what they do in hopes of being successful. But I always expect myself to be successful at things. And if I'm not, I feel bad. I don't care for failure. I've failed at a number of things, and it's not my favorite state of mind. So I prefer success.

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
