Being defeated is often only a temporary condition. Giving up is  what
makes it permanent.      Marilyn vos Savant  1946-NA

If you're never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you  never
take any chances.     Julia Sorel  1926-

Our fears are  more numerous than our dangers,
and we suffer more in our imagination than  in reality.
Seneca

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.Henry  Ford

No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself  Nietzsche

A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins  to
blame someone else.   John  Burroughs

There is more in us than we know. If we can be made to see it,
perhaps,  for the rest of our lives, we will be unwilling to settle
for less.  Kurt Hahn

Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead
of  hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fibre
of a  character, but strengthen it. Every conquered temptation
represents a new  fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and
weathered in the right spirit  makes a soul nobler and stronger than
it was before.  James  Buckham

 

Hard things are put in our way, not to stop us, but to call out  our
courage and strength.   Anonymous

 

The sages do not consider that making no mistakes is a blessing.  They
believe, rather, that the great virtue of man lies in his ability  to
correct his mistakes and continually make a new man of himself.

--  Wang Yang-Ming (1472-1529) Chinese  Philosopher

The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are,
for what we could become. - Charles Du Bos

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every
 time we fall. - Nelson Mandela


You can't change the past,  But  you can ruin the present
By worrying over the future  !

"Never give in! Never give in! Never, never, never, never -- in nothing
great or small, large or petty.
"Never give in except to convictions of  honor and good sense."Winston
Churchill
