Wise Quotes On Failure from Some Very Successful People


I keep Failing in Love, in Business, in Life.

I’m a success, in some areas, because I fail several times a day, and learn from my mistakes. In other areas, I’m a failure, because I fail several times a day, and fail to learn from my missteps. Instead, I take my failures personally—”maybe I’m not good enough.”    Damn right I’m not good enough: that’s why they call it “practice.”
