A Quote by Richard David Bach on curiosity, learning, losing, and winning

That's what learning is, after all: not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we've changed because of it and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way, is winning.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on change, history, and politics

A Quote by Richard David Bach on ideas, men, men and women, thought, women, worth, soulmate, and unlikely

What a story that would make!   How many men and women go through the same rivers, menaced by the same sharp clichés, the same jagged dangers that have threatened us! If the idea stands up, I thought, it would be worth uncovering the typewriter!  How Richard-years-ago would have wanted to know: What happens when we set off searching for a soulmate who doesn't exist, and find her?

A Quote by Richard David Bach on learning, mistakes, needs, order, and all things meant

There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they're necessary to reach the places we've chosen to go.
