On Failure…

The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.
-Buddha

The brilliant is born out of a writer’s pain, some divine inspiration, and a slight bit of madness. You can aspire to it but you can’t plan on it, especially if you know your limitations. Your horizons can expand, however, if you allow yourself the possibility of failure. You must, in fact, court failure. Let her be your temptress. There must be danger in the attempt and no net strung across the abyss to break your fall.
—Neil Simon

I don’t believe in failure. It is not failure if you enjoyed the process.
-Oprah Winfrey

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
-Winston Churchill

I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
-Bill Cosby
