Being defeated

The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.

Rainer Maria Rilke



Don’t fear mistakes

Success is often the result of taking a misstep in the right direction.

Al Bernstein


Make use of your mistakes

The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way.

Dale Carnegie


A learning experience

Try to learn something about everything and everything about something.

Thomas Huxley


A learning experience

It doesn’t matter if I don’t succeed in something, what matters is that I learn from my mistakes.

Linda Evans


You’ve got to try! 

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying. 

Michael Jordan

Everyone is my teacher

Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract. Often I learn simply by observing others. Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, and I bow deeply in gratitude.

Eric Allen
