FAILURE Quotes

A mistake is not a failure if you try to fix it, learn from it or move on, determined to make a better choice next time.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated.
-- Maya Angelou

The young think that failure is the Siberian end of the line, banishment from all the living, and tend to do what I then did - which was to hide.

You must accept that you might fail; then, if you do your best and still don't win, at least you can be satisfied that you've tried. If you don't accept failure as a possibility, you don't set high goals, you don't branch out, you don't try - you don't take the risk.
-- Rosalynn Carter

Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
~ George Washington Carver

"There are no magic answers, no miraculous methods to overcome the problems we face, just the familiar ones: honest search for understanding, education, organization, action that raises the cost of state violence for its perpetrators or that lays the basis for institutional change -- and the kind of commitment that will persist despite the temptations of disillusionment, despite many failures and only limited successes, inspired by the hope of a brighter future."
-- Noam Chomsky

If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.

* "The only failure
is not to try."
-- George Clooney

But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for.
-- Paulo Coelho

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
-- Bill Cosby

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
-- Bill Cosby

The main failure of education is that it has not prepared people to comprehend matters concerning human destiny.
-- Norman Cousins
Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.
-- John Dewey

"No one can defeat us unless we first defeat ourselves."
-- Dwight D. Eisenhower

 

Life is to be lived, not controlled, and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat.
- Ralph Ellison

* Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.
-- Benjamin Franklin

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.
-- Mohandas K. Gandhi

No matter how hard the loss, defeat might serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out.
~ Al Gore

The greatest mistake a man can make is to be afraid of making one.
- Elbert Hubbard

We need to accept that we won't always make the right decisions, that we'll screw up royally sometimes - understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of success.
-- Arianna Huffington

“The heroes of the world community are not those who withdraw when difficulties ensue, not those who can envision neither the prospect of success nor the consequence of failure -- but those who stand the heat of battle, the fight for world peace through the United Nations.”
-- Hubert Humphrey

And when at some future date the high court of history sits in judgment on each of us, recording whether in our brief span of service we fulfilled our responsibilities to the state, our success or failure, in whatever office we hold, will be measured by the answers to four questions: First, were we truly men of courage... Second, were we truly men of judgment... Third, were we truly men of integrity... Finally, were we truly men of dedication?—
-- John F. Kennedy, 1961

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer too much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
-- Theodore Roosevelt

Keep in mind that our community is not composed of those who are already saints, but of those who are trying to become saints. Therefore let us be extremely patient with each other's faults and failures.

* Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way.

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds.”
-- Theodore Roosevelt
