“The tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal.
The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.”
“To live only for some future goal is shallow.
It’s the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.”
"Don't be discouraged by failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid."
It's good to know that there's always hope as well as room for improvement. But what if there isn't always much time left for our proverbial self-amelioration, catchings up to do, & all that other blah that we promised before that we'll get done someday?
