failure

A Quote by Robert T. Kiyosaki on failure, success, business, entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurs

After one of my demoralizing business failures, I went to rich dad and asked, "So what did I do wrong? I thought I designed it well." "Obviously you didn't," rich dad said with a smirk.

"How many times do I have to do this? I'm the biggest failure I know." Rich dad said, "Losers quit when they fail. Winners fail until they succeed." Shuffling the papers at his desk for a moment, he then looked up at me and said, "The world is filled with want-to-be entrepreneurs. They sit behind desks, have important sounding titles like vice-president, branch manager, or supervisor, and some even take home a decent paycheck. These want-to-be entrepreneurs dream of someday starting their own business empire and maybe someday some of them will. Yet I believe most will never make the leap. Most will have some excuse, some rationalization, such as, 'When the kids are grown.' Or, 'I'll go back to school first.' Or, 'When I have enough money saved.'"

"But they never jump from the plane," I said, finishing his thoughts. Rich dad nodded.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on life, failure, and dreams

But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for.

Paulo Coelho

A Quote by unknown on road, success, failure, and jesus

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, and a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

A Quote by Toyohiko Kagawa on jesus, failure, food, bread, nourishment, wisdom, civilization, life, social, and mistakes

Not everything in man's life is summed up in the problem of food. Anyone who thinks that a civilization can be founded on bread alone makes a great mistake. No matter how much bread there is, it cannot produce a man: it can only nourish him. Life exists before food. Man's life comes from the very origin of life. Therefore civilization does not follow the forms of production. All social life follows the action of life.

A Quote by William Faulkner on perfection, failure, success, dreams, and impossible

All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on critics, criticism, courage, doers, failure, and success

It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause. Who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)
