IN A SENSE, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FAILURE...
~I-CHING: 47 - K'UN
There is only sweet and sour reality, and more is learned from the sour oftentimes than from the sweet.
For failure - hard as it may be to swallow - opens the blinds to the real world and
re-awakens clarity of vision known only to those who have risked & tasted disappointment.
Failure is the final taboo in modern society.
But this is just one part of the inevitable cycle of life for those who dare live fully and completely.
NEVER TO FAIL at all is to fail in the biggest way:
avoiding risk altogether you cannot help but fall far short of WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN.
