Quotes #5: Twin Impostors: Famous Quotes on Success & Failure

Failure is 1 Step Away From Success

On our journey home, back to God, we inevitably meet those two impostors: success and failure. We all must deal with them as they help us develop our spiritual muscles and unfold along our path.

Rudyard Kipling said it all: "If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you. If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two Impostors just the same; Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it."

The Importance of Being Persistent & Taking Risks

"Do something and if that does not work do something else… Try, try again."
   -
"Frasier Crane"

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
   -
Calvin Coolidge

"To live is to risk dying. To do is to risk failure.
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool. To love is to risk not being loved in return
To cry is to risk appearing soft and sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement or rejection.
To place your ideas, dreams, and desires before people is to risk ridicule.
The greatest omission in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing gets nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering, pain and sorrow, but he does not learn, grow, live, or love. He is only a slave - chained by safety - locked away by fear. Only a person who is willing to risk, not knowing the results, is alive."
   -
Anonymous

"Risk: risk is our business."
   -
"Captain James Tiberius Kirk" ("Star Trek: Classic")

"For you to profit from your mistakes, you have to get out and make some."

"Those that say they never got a chance never took one."

"The galleries are full of critics. They play no ball. They fight no fights. They make no mistakes, because they attempt nothing. Down in the arena are the doers. They make mistakes because they attempt many things. The person who makes no mistakes lacks boldness and the spirit of adventure. He is the one who never, never tries anything new. He is the brake on the wheel of progress. The very fact that he tries nothing, takes no chances, does nothing except criticize those who try is, perhaps, the biggest possible error in a life-time."

"I'm not afraid of storms, for with them, I'm learning how to sail my ship."
   -
Louisa May Alcott

"It is circumstances which show what men are. Therefore, when a difficulty falls upon you, remember that God, like a trainer of wrestlers, has matched you with a rough young man. For what purpose? you might ask. So that you may become an Olympic Conqueror; but it is not accomplished without sweat. ...no man has had a more profitable difficulty than you have had, if you choose to make use of it as an athlete would deal with a young antagonist."
   -
Epictetus

"A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, in bracing their minds to outward calamities, acquired a loftiness of purpose and a moral heroism worth a lifetime of softness and security."
   -
Anonymous

"In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God hath set the one against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him."
   -
Bible: Ecclesiastes (7:14)

"Even though things do not go as we have planned, they can still work out."
   -
"Roz Doyle" (in "Frasier Crane" on the "Memorable Death of Lupe Velez")

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
   -
Anne Bradstreet

"... if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain."
   -
Dolly Parton

"Common sense is seeing things as they are; and doing things as they ought to be."
   -
Harriet Beecher Stowe

"There is very little difference in people - but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is ATTITUDE. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative."
   -
W. Clement Stone

"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you, but as the attitude you bring to life."
   -
John Homer Miller

"If you weigh well the strengths of our armies you will see that in this battle we must conquer or die. This is a warrior's resolve. As for the rest (who choose not to fight), they may live or be slaves as the gods decide."
   -
Queen Boadaceia of Britain

"Reach for the stars and do not be surprised when you catch one."
   -
Anonymous

"We are in the business of exploring!"
   -
