“There are no failures - just experiences and your reactions to them.”
Tom Krause

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
Colin Powell

“My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong”
Benjamin Franklin

“Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.”
C.S. Lewis

“Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk - and to act.”
Andre Malraux

“To be wrong is nothing unless you continue to remember it”



All excellent quotes. I particularly like the first one.

@Sarah - yes, and the last one is also good!

Hi Claudia. I always love your Mondays Specials. My favourite one today is "I didn't fail the test. I just found 100 ways to do it wrong." Hee Hee! That reminds me of me.

@Diane - it is true indeed, but I am sure you don't find 100 wrong ways :)

It's great how encouraging and uplifting quotes about failure can be... ;-) Thanks for sharing these, have a lovely week xo

@Mlle Poirot - well yes :) Uplifting, nice word, could be worth a special post!

I love all these quotes, especially Gandhi's.

@Belle - I agree!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
