Inspirational Thoughts on Failure



Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
-- Winston Churchill

If a man has a talent and cannot use it, he has failed. If he has a talent and uses half of it, he has partially failed. If he has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he has gloriously succeeded and won a satisfaction and a triumph few men ever know.
-- Thomas Wolfe

Remember, there are two benefits of failure: First, if you do fail, you learn what doesn't work; and second, the failure gives you an opportunity to try a new approach.
-- Roger Von Oech

Ninety percent of those who fail are not actually defeated. They simply quit.
-- Paul J. Meyer

To hope is to risk failure.
-- Unknown Author

The one who sits on the ground need not fear a fall.
-- Czech Proverb

Many men fail because they quit too soon. They lose faith when the signs are against them. They do not have the courage to hold on, to keep fighting in spite of that which seems insurmountable. If more of us would strike out and attempt the "impossible," we very soon would find the truth of that old saw that nothing is impossible...Abolish fear and you can accomplish anything you wish.
-- C. E. Welch

If fear wins, you lose.
-- Michael Altshuler

It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.
-- Lena Horne

We have forty million reasons for failure but not a single excuse.
-- Rudyard Kipling

The reason most major goals are not achieved is that we spend our time doing second things first.
-- Robert J. McKain

Failure is a part of success. There is no such thing as a bed of roses all your life. But failure will never stand in the way of success if you learn from it.
-- Hank Aaron

Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead-end street.
-- Unknown Author

If you have tried to do something and failed, you are vastly better off than if you tried to do nothing and succeeded.
-- Unknown Author

Success is not measured by how high you fly, but how high you bounce when you fall.
-- Unknown Author

Those who have one foot in the canoe, and one foot in the boat are going to fall into the river.
-- Native American Proverb

One who sits between two chairs may easily fall down.
-- Russian Proverb

In the long run you hit only what you aim at. Therefore, though you should fail immediately, you had better aim at something high.
-- Henry David Thoreau

All my successes have been built on my failures.
-- Benjamin Disraeli

Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.
-- Benjamin Franklin

Half the things that people do not succeed in are through fear of making the attempt.
-- Unknown Author
