You cannot learn anything from success, you only learn from failure.
We must radiate success before it will come to us. We must first become mentally, from an attitude standpoint, the people we wish to become.
Each man is capable of doing one thing well. If he attempts several, he will fail to achieve distinction in any.
We may fail of our happiness, strive we ever so bravely; but we are less likely to fail if we measure with judgement our chances and our capabilities.
My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime usually do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed only for those exceptionally rare circumstances when all other rights have failed. A free people can only afford to make this mistake once.
Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of the intellect - simply a confession of failures.
Misfortunes one can endure--they come from outside, they are accidents. But to suffer for one's own faults--ah!--there is the sting of life.
We women adore failures. They lean on us.
Ambition is the last refuge of the failure.
Good taste is the excuse I've always given for leading such a bad life
I have insecurities. But whatever I'm insecure about, I don't dissect it, but I'll go after it and say, "What am I afraid of?" I bet the average successful person can tell you they've failed so much more than they've had success. I've had far more failures than I've had successes. With every commercial I've gotten, there were 200 I didn't get. You have to go after what you're afraid of.
