Give me your quotes and platitudes about failure.
I have a huge test coming up tomorrow, one of the most important in my career. After a lot of thought, I've realized a lot of things about the way I approach success and failure. I made a vow that I'm going to show up, despite the fact that with a day-old broken hand, my ability to make the grade I want on the practical section isn't going to go the way I want it to. I'm showing up anyway, and I'm super proud of myself!
is one of my favorites on AskMeFi. I think the responses are way better (and way more personally moving) than looking in quote books or anything for platitudes.
Sorry if this has been asked before, but my search-fu is somewhat ironically failing me at the moment. This
is the closest I came to what I'm after, and it's definitely not the same.
What are your quotes, literary passages, aphorisms, lyrics, poems, etc. about success and failure?
