Try, reach, want, and you may fall. But even if you do, you might be okay anyway. If you don’t try, you save nothing, because you might as well be dead.
The only failure is not to try.
If nothing else, we are commited to failing in a new way.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.
A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
Throughout the centuries, there were men who took first steps, down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision.

A mistake: An event, the full benefit of which ahs not yet been turned to your advantage.
