Failing quotes by A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Failing quotes by George Albert Smith
#2. Our feet have been planted upon this sacred soil for a wise purpose. This land has been dedicated for the blessing of mankind. The Constitution and the laws that have been enacted under its provisions are calculated to insure liberty, not license, to all who dwell here. This church with which we are identified stands, if it stands for anything, for the perpetuation of the liberties of all mankind. We should not listen to those who find pleasure in teaching sedition. Neither should we follow those who claim to be citizens of this land, who go about violating the laws that govern it. There are many who are failing to do their duty as citizens who have the right of franchise, but who are unworthy of that blessing that has come to those who live in this wonderful country. #Quote by George Albert Smith
Failing quotes by Michael Hyatt
#3. You can't fail if you don't quit.
You can't succeed if you don't start. #Quote by Michael Hyatt

Failing quotes by Annie Dillard
#5. The soul may ask God for anything, and never fail. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Failing quotes by Michael Pollan
#6. Uncle Jeff insisted that I also take a tray of unseasoned barbecue, so I could see for myself that what's going on here at the Skylight Inn does not in any way, shape, or form depend for it's flavor or quality on "sauce." That is a word he pronounces with an upturned lip and a slight sneer, suggesting that the use of barbecue sauce was at best a culinary crutch deserving of pity and at worst a moral failing. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Failing quotes by Danica McKellar
#7. The camera fails to capture the 'business' in show business! We typically will give 10 percent of our salary to the agent, 10 percent to the manager, and 5 percent to the lawyer, plus the publicist gets a flat fee, which needs to be budgeted for. #Quote by Danica McKellar
Failing quotes by Lionel Shriver
#8. I have no end of failings as a mother, but I have always followed the rules. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Failing quotes by Nadia Boulanger

Failing quotes by John R. Mott
#10. We fail to prevail with unconverted men because of our more fundamental failure to prevail with God in prayer. #Quote by John R. Mott
Failing quotes by Tom DeMarco
#11. In a healthy organization, a certain amount of failure is okay. At Microsoft, for example, there has long been an almost official policy of "sink, then swim." People are loaded down with so much responsibility that they sink (fail). Then they have a chance to rest up, to analyze and modify their own performance. Finally, they are loaded again with a comparable amount of responsibility, but this time they succeed. If they don't sink the first time, that just shows they weren't challenged enough. They can be sure that the next time out they will be challenged a lot more aggressively. To the extent that this policy is applied company-wide, Microsoft seems to be run as an Outward Bound adventure. Finding your weaknesses by failing is not just incidental; it is designed into the corporate philosophy. #Quote by Tom DeMarco
Failing quotes by Calamity Jane
#12. Those as don't eat, without exception, fail to survive. #Quote by Calamity Jane
Failing quotes by Anna Kendrick
#13. The consummate gentleman on the planet today is George Clooney, who never fails to go the extra mile for people. Every person matters to George. #Quote by Anna Kendrick
Failing quotes by Sally Kohn
#14. The fire in the bellies of the good people who work for a more fair and just world for all of us - that spark never fails to inspire me and warm my heart. #Quote by Sally Kohn
Failing quotes by Russell M. Nelson
#15. ...[S]o many people look only to their bank balance for peace or to fellow human beings for models to follow. Clinicians, academicians, and politicians are often put to a test of faith. In pursuit of their goals, will their religion show or will it be hidden? Are they tied back to God or to man? I had such a test decades ago when one of my medical faculty colleagues chastised me for failing to separate my professional knowledge from my religious convictions. He demanded that I not combine the two. How could I do that? Truth is truth! It is not divisible, and any part of it cannot be set aside. Whether truth emerges from a scientific laboratory or through revelation, all truth emanates from God. #Quote by Russell M. Nelson
Failing quotes by Jasper Fforde
#16. The Kingdom of Hereford was unique in the Ununited Kingdoms for having driving tests based on maturity, not age, much to the chagrin of a lot of males, some of whom were still failing to make the grade at thirty-two. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Failing quotes by Sidney Sugarman
#17. If the student fails to learn, the teacher fails to teach. #Quote by Sidney Sugarman
Failing quotes by George Muller
#18. It is not enough to begin to pray, nor to pray aright; nor is it enough to continue for a time to pray; but we must patiently, believingly, continue in prayer until we obtain an answer; and further we have not only to continue in prayer unto the end, but we have also to believe that God does hear us, and will answer our prayers. Most frequently we fail in not continuing in prayer until the blessing is obtained, and in not expecting the blessing. #Quote by George Muller
Failing quotes by Ali Harris
#19. Is there such a thing as a life without any regrets? I've never believed so. We spend our lives aiming for happiness and fulfilment in work, in love and with our friends and family, and yet often our energy is spent lamenting bad boyfriends, wrong career turns, fallouts with friends and opportunities missed. Or is that just me? I admit I'm naturally a glass-half-empty kind of girl, but I know regrets are a burden to happiness and I'm trying to let go of them because I've learned that it's all about choice. You can choose to turn regrets into lessons that change your future. Believe me when I say I'm really trying to do this. But the truth is, I'm failing. Because all I can think right now is: maybe I deserve it. Maybe this is my penance. #Quote by Ali Harris
Failing quotes by Susan Powter
#20. There's a couple of universal principles in life. One is, don't ever open a restaurant. One out of every two fails. #Quote by Susan Powter
Failing quotes by Christine Feehan
#21. You have no reason to be sorry for anything, ma petite."
Her clenched fist lay over his heart, the three diamonds in her palm. "You think I can't read your body? Feel the heaviness in your mind as you try to shield me? I can't change who I am, not even for you. I know I'm failing you, causing you discomfort."
A slow smile curved his mouth. Discomfort. Now,there was a word for it. His hand crushed her hair, ran it through his fingers. "I have never asked you to change, nor would I want you to. You seem to forget that I know you better than anyone. I can handle you."
She turned her head so that he could see the silver stars flashing in her blue eyes, a smoldering warning. "You are so arrogant,Gregori, it makes me want to throw things.Do you hear yourself? Handle me? Ha! I try to say I'm sorry for failing you, and you act the lord of the manor. Being born centuries ago when women were chattel does not give you an excuse. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Failing quotes by Joseph Needham
#22. But nothing ever put 'Hoppy' in the shade. No one could fail to recognize in the little figure ... the authentic gold of intellectual inspiration, the Fundator et Primus Abbas of biochemistry in England. #Quote by Joseph Needham
Failing quotes by Russell M. Nelson
#23. Throughout the world, the family is increasingly under attack. If families fail, many of our political, economic, and social systems will also fail. #Quote by Russell M. Nelson
Failing quotes by Karla Cheatham Mosley
#24. When I fail or make a mistake, I ask myself what lesson I was supposed to learn or how I can show up differently next time. #Quote by Karla Cheatham Mosley
Failing quotes by Tyler  King
#25. You've always had my heart."
She looked up, biting her lip and failing to hide her sweet smirk. "That was the cheesiest line I've ever heard."
"That? That's what you tell me when I profess my undying love for you? Fuck, Punky. You're killing me."
She laughed, grabbing two fistfuls of my hair and shaking my head. "I love you. #Quote by Tyler King
Failing quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#26. Don't you know that day dawns after night, showers displace drought, and spring and summer follow winter? Then, have hope! Hope forever, for God will not fail you! #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Failing quotes by Ogwo David Emenike
#27. If your failure is not a lesson, it's indeed a failure. #Quote by Ogwo David Emenike
Failing quotes by Andrew Root
#28. Ministry is not about helping these kids be better Christians; it is about helping them be what God created them to be-human. And it is the degradation of their humanity, brought about by broken and abusive families, violent neighborhoods, failing schools and poverty, that caused them to lash out so forcefully. Ministry is about suffering with them in their dehumanization, celebrating their human endeavors and in all things pointing to the true human, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Having #Quote by Andrew Root
Failing quotes by Kristen Ciccarelli
#29. When she remained silent, the slave went back to work. He started humming the tune of a song only to stop, rearrange the notes, then sing them again in a different order. He did this over and over. Like he was testing the song and it kept failing him. Asha lay back, letting his voice distract her from the teeth-grinding pain of his needle sewing her up. A story rose to mind, unbidden. Rayan strode through his mother's orange grove and stopped sharp. Someone was singing. Someone with the voice of a nightingale. #Quote by Kristen Ciccarelli
Failing quotes by Robert Duncan
#30. If the government is going to mandate levels and punish schools for failing, they should send that money to the school system. #Quote by Robert Duncan
Failing quotes by Michael Swanwick
#31. The best thing to be in a city was anonymous. Failing that, however, notoriety would do. #Quote by Michael Swanwick
Failing quotes by Billy Graham
#32. God has given us two hands
one to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing. #Quote by Billy Graham
Failing quotes by Jamake Highwater
#33. Art is a staple of mankind ... So urgent, so utterly linked with the pulse of feeling that it becomes the singular sign of life when every other aspect of civilization fails. #Quote by Jamake Highwater
Failing quotes by Terrence McNally
#34. Cheating is not the American way. It is small, while we are large. It is cheap, while we are richly endowed. It is destructive, while we are creative. It is doomed to fail, while our gifts and responsibilities call us to achieve. It sabotages trust and weakens the bonds of spirit and humanity, without which we perish. #Quote by Terrence McNally
Failing quotes by Jo Brand
#35. I think it's really important to be kind, especially to people whose lives are grim - I try hard to cheer people up in as many ways as I can - if all else fails - I tell 'em a joke! #Quote by Jo Brand
Failing quotes by Sophia Loren
#36. I have never judged myself by other people's standards. I have always expected a great deal of myself, and if I fail, I fail myself. #Quote by Sophia Loren
Failing quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#37. The laws keep up their credit, not by being just, but because they are laws; 'tis the mystic foundation of their authority; they have no other, and it well answers their purpose. They are often made by fools; still oftener by men who, out of hatred to equality, fail in equity; but always by men, vain and irresolute authors. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Failing quotes by Sheldon B. Kopp
#38. We must learn to give ourselves permission to blunder, to fail, and to make fools of ourselves every day for the rest of our lives. We do so in any case. #Quote by Sheldon B. Kopp
Failing quotes by Jordan Rudess
#39. You are epic fail if you think you are better than me! #Quote by Jordan Rudess
Failing quotes by John Engler
#40. I just have a position that any child that's in a failing school should be able to get out, or be in a position to have that school fixed. #Quote by John Engler
Failing quotes by Jamie-Lynn Sigler
#41. I think comedy I've learned is really just about relaxing and trusting yourself and allowing yourself to fail. #Quote by Jamie-Lynn Sigler
Failing quotes by Phil Zuckerman
#42. I found myself pondering the specific Christian American obsession with abortion and gay rights. For million of Americans, these are the great societal "sins" of the day. It isn't bogus wars, systemic poverty, failing schools, child abuse, domestic violence, health care for profit, poorly paid social workers, under-funded hospitals, gun saturation, or global warming that riles or worries the conservative, Bible-believers of America." pg33 #Quote by Phil Zuckerman
Failing quotes by Kandi Steiner
#43. An insecure man would rather laugh with the hyenas than chance failing a run with the lions. I #Quote by Kandi Steiner
Failing quotes by Francesca Zappia
#44. emmersmacks: Hold on

emmersmacks: Wait

emmersmacks: So you stood up for him?

MirkerLurker: Yeah.

emmersmacks: . . . Im failing to see the issue here E

emmersmacks: Did they hurt you??

MirkerLurker: No . . . not really. Just took my sketchbook and threw it around a little.

MirkerLurker: Okay look I know it doesn't sound that bad

MirkerLurker: But, like, you don't understand the way this guy looks at me. He's one of those where it's like, "Why are you even standing in front of me, you're uglier than the stuff I crap out after eating too muchChipotle."

3:19 p.m. (Apocalypse_Cow has joined the message)

Apocalypse_Cow: i feel like i came in at a bad time. i'll go.

emmersmacks: E is having a crisis

Apocalypse_Cow: crisis over what?

MirkerLurker: Just this stupid new kid at school who may or may not be a fanficwriter for Monstrous Sea and who definitely thinks I am the scum of the earth.

emmersmacks: Why would he think that?? You stood up for him

MirkerLurker: I don't know! Because I emasculated him, probably. Or something. Max, I need advice from someone who's felt emasculated.

Apocalypse_Cow: why would you immediately assume i've felt emasculated before?

MirkerLurker: Because you're the only male here.

Apocalypse_Cow: if you want to know if some guys feel emasculated when a girl stands #Quote by Francesca Zappia
Failing quotes by Seneca The Younger
#45. Where reason fails, time oft has worked a cure. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Failing quotes by Harlan Ellison
#46. The only thing worth writing about is people. People. Human beings. Men and women whose individuality must be created, line by line, insight by insight. If you do not do it, the story is a failure. [ ... ] There is no nobler chore in the universe than holding up the mirror of reality and turning it slightly, so we have a new and different perception of the commonplace, the everyday, the 'normal', the obvious. People are reflected in the glass. The fantasy situation into which you thrust them is the mirror itself. And what we are shown should illuminate and alter our perception of the world around us. Failing that, you have failed totally. #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Failing quotes by Alexander The Great
#47. My logisticians are a humorless lot ... they know if my campaign fails, they are the first ones I will slay. #Quote by Alexander The Great
Failing quotes by Bruno Schulz
#48. How can one not succumb and allow one's courage to fail when everything is shut tight, when all meaningful things are walled up, and when you constantly knock against bricks, as against the walls of a prison? #Quote by Bruno Schulz
Failing quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#49. If we fail to give our time with those we love, one day we will live to regret it. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Failing quotes by Celia Green

Failing quotes by Raymond Loewy
#51. I sought excitement and, taking chances, I was all ready to fail in order to achieve something large. #Quote by Raymond Loewy
Failing quotes by Assegid Habtewold
#52. Failing once in awhile is inevitable. The question is which way are we falling most of the time. Are we falling Backward or Forward, Downward or Forward? #Quote by Assegid Habtewold
Failing quotes by Thomas Bailey Aldrich
#53. They fail, and they alone, who have not striven. #Quote by Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Failing quotes by Judith Spencer
#54. For its survival, the satanic cult demanded secrecy and obedience while it made brutality, even killing, appropriate. Denial and disavowal were inevitable responses to required behaviors so bizarre as to seem unreal, even to those who enacted them. What they could not deny or disavow, they could distort. They could blame the victims, who deserved to die for fighting or crying or for failing to fight or cry. They found encouragement for such a stance in a general culture accustomed to blaming victims for their misfortunes, and in specific contact with child victims eager to blame themselves. By believing that victims had a choice when there was none, they could see victims as culpable. They could even see the deaths as right and purposeful in the nobility of sacrifice. #Quote by Judith Spencer
Failing quotes by J. Edward Hackett
#55. At this point, Underwood turns to us and remarks that "the only thing more satisfying than convincing someone to do what I want is failing to persuade them on purpose. It's like a Do Not Enter sign - it just begs you to walk through the door. #Quote by J. Edward Hackett
Failing quotes by Beth Brooke
#56. Sometimes women get devastated by failing. Athletes don't; they just know that means they've got to practise harder, and they've got to do something else differently. #Quote by Beth Brooke
Failing quotes by Stafford Beer
#57. The purpose of a system is what it does. #Quote by Stafford Beer
Failing quotes by Stephen Richards
#58. I was so incensed that I was oblivious to all as I ran over broken glass, holding a five-foot weightlifting bar. The glass tore the soles of my feet as I chased the gang's car up the street. I remember breathing heavily as I cursed failing to catch my enemies. #Quote by Stephen Richards
Failing quotes by Greg Forster
#59. I think the failure of The American church to affirm the goodness of civilizational life is our greatest failing today. #Quote by Greg Forster
Failing quotes by Alain De Botton
#60. We feel something, and reach out for the nearest phrase or hum with which to communicate, but which fails to do justice to what has induced us to do so ... We stay on the outside of our impressions, as if staring at them through a frosted window, superficially related to them, yet estranged from whatever has eluded casual definition. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Failing quotes by Gerald Vann
#61. Some people think that prayer just means asking for things, and if they fail to receive exactly what they asked for, they think the whole thing is a fraud. #Quote by Gerald Vann
Failing quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#62. Jo couldn't even lose her heart in a decorous manner, but sternly tried to quench her feelings, and failing to do so, led a somewhat agitated life. She was mortally afraid of being laughed at for surrendering, after her many and vehement declarations of independence. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Failing quotes by Poppet
#63. She lowers her forehead to the floor, curling starlight tendrils under her face when she rocks in the yoga pose, so tempting and sexy even in her deepest despair. Her courage is failing and I wait it out, watching the prone woman bend subconsciously in prostrate worship. She knows who I am or she wouldn't do that. #Quote by Poppet
Failing quotes by Jason Read
#64. People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as 'parasites' fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society. #Quote by Jason Read
Failing quotes by Dustin Hoffman
#65. I decided to become an actor because I was failing in school and I needed the credits. #Quote by Dustin Hoffman
Failing quotes by Henry Petroski
#66. What is commonly overlooked in using the computer is the fact that the central goal of design is still to obviate failure, and thus it is critical to identify exactly how a structure may fail. The computer cannot do this by itself ... #Quote by Henry Petroski
Failing quotes by Kim Alexis
#67. I did not have a personal relationship with Jesus until I met my nanny, who helped me through a failing marriage and raising my two boys in a New York City apartment. She showed me by example what it was like to be able to talk to Jesus and bring all my cares and worries to Him. That was in 1990. #Quote by Kim Alexis
Failing quotes by Daniel Pauly
#68. The crisis of the fisheries is similar to our economy. This is not one fishery failing, but the whole system. #Quote by Daniel Pauly
Failing quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#69. When failure imprisons you for not doing what you should have done, you have no option than to bail yourself on the promise of trying again! Try again! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Failing quotes by Wildbow
#70. A chronic failing of human beings, that we so rarely looked up. #Quote by Wildbow
Failing quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#71. The reason most people fail instead of succeed is they trade what they want most for what they want at the moment. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Failing quotes by Kevin Myers
#72. You can KNOW something yet FAIL to do it! #Quote by Kevin Myers
Failing quotes by Jim Steinmeyer
#73. Ultimately every trick succeeds or fails with an audience because of its plot. #Quote by Jim Steinmeyer
Failing quotes by Joseph F. Smith
#74. Of what use is it that we know the truth, if we lack its spirit? Our knowledge, in this event, becomes a condemnation to us, failing to bear fruit. It is not sufficient that we know the truth, but we must be humble with this knowledge possess the spirit to actuate us to good deeds. Baptism, as well as all other outward ordinances, without the spirit accompanying, is useless. We remain but baptized sinners. #Quote by Joseph F. Smith
Failing quotes by Joni Ernst
#75. Over the longer term, we need to work toward a pro-growth tax code that is fairer and simpler than what we have now. Anything that meets those criteria is going to be better than the failing and dysfunctional tax code we have today. #Quote by Joni Ernst
Failing quotes by Robyn Sisman
#76. People can be so frightened of failing that they do nothing, or choose something so dull they have no chance of shining. - Molly #Quote by Robyn Sisman
Failing quotes by Ferdinand Porsche
#77. If one does not fail at times, then one has not challenged himself. #Quote by Ferdinand Porsche
Failing quotes by Hillary Clinton
#78. Wall Street can never be allowed to threaten main street again. No bank can be too big to fail, no executive too powerful to jail. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Failing quotes by John D. Rockefeller
#79. I have no use for men who fail. The cause of their failure is no business of mine, but I want successful men as my associates. #Quote by John D. Rockefeller
Failing quotes by Michael Moorcock
#80. All Empires fall, All ages die, All strife shall be in vain. All Kings go down, All hope must fail, But Tanelorn remains Our Tanelorn remains ... #Quote by Michael Moorcock
Failing quotes by Adam McKay
#81. You have to be able to fail with the improv. You have to not care. #Quote by Adam McKay
Failing quotes by Ole Hallesby
#82. Prayer brings a good spirit in our homes. For God hears prayer. Heaven itself would come down to our homes. And even though we who constitute the home all have our imperfections and our failings, our home would, through God's answer to prayer, become a little paradise. #Quote by Ole Hallesby
Failing quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#83. And yet I decide, every day, to set aside what I can do best and attempt what I do very clumsily
open myself to the frustrations and failures of loving, daring to believe that failing in love is better than succeeding in pride. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Failing quotes by Fannie Barrier Williams
#84. The hearts of Afro-American women are too warm and too large for race hatred. Long suffering has so chastened them that they are developing a special sense of sympathy for all who suffer and fail of justice. #Quote by Fannie Barrier Williams
Failing quotes by Timothy Griffin
#85. Whether it was turning around failing companies, rescuing the Olympics, or improving the business climate in Massachusetts, Mitt Romney has proven that he is ready to be president on Day One. #Quote by Timothy Griffin
Failing quotes by Dominic Riccitello
#86. Looking back and wondering if it could have worked eventually hurts more than trying and failing. #Quote by Dominic Riccitello
Failing quotes by Richard Rohr
#87. Heartbreaks, disappointments and even our own weaknesses can serve as stepping-stones to the second half of life transformation. Failings are the foundation for growth. Those who have fallen, failed or 'gone down' are the only ones who understand 'up.' #Quote by Richard Rohr
Failing quotes by Richard Feynman
#88. I have no responsibility to live up to what others expect of me. That's their mistake, not my failing. #Quote by Richard Feynman
Failing quotes by Michelle Mone
#89. I wake up every morning fearing I am going to fail. But I love a challenge, big or small. There's so much I want to do. I only sleep four hours a night. #Quote by Michelle Mone
Failing quotes by Terry Pratchett
#90. He rather liked people. It was a major failing in a demon. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Failing quotes by Abby Sunderland
#91. I was so thankful that my parents trusted me enough and had enough faith in my abilities to let me follow my passion and try to do something great, even if I might fail. #Quote by Abby Sunderland
Failing quotes by Gertrude Atherton
#92. Whether you fail or set the world on fire cannot make so very much difference if only you have the opportunity to try for it, to work for it, to think of nothing else! #Quote by Gertrude Atherton
Failing quotes by Joseph Conrad
#93. I would not unduly praise the virtue of restraint. It is often merely temperamental. But it is not always a sign of coldness. It may be pride. There can be nothing more humiliating than to see the shaft of one's emotion miss the mark of either laughter or tears. Nothing more humiliating! And this for the reason that should the mark be missed, should the open display of emotion fail to move, then it must perish unavoidably in disgust or contempt. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Failing quotes by Stuart J. Russell
#94. The robot is not going to want to be switched off because you've given it a goal to achieve and being switched off is a way of failing - so it will do its best not to be switched off. That's a story that isn't made clear in most movies but it I think is a real issue. #Quote by Stuart J. Russell
Failing quotes by Winston Churchill
#95. Far be it from me to paint a rosy picture of the future ... But I should be failing in my duty if, on the other side, I were not to convey the true impression, that this great nation is getting into its war stride. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Failing quotes by Dorothy Whipple
#96. It matters to ourselves, of course, but it matters terribly to other people. Moral failure or spiritual failure or whatever you call it, makes such a vicious circle ... It seems as if when we love people and they fall short, we retaliate by falling shorter ourselves. Children are like that. Adults have a fearful responsibility. When they fail to live up to what children expect of them, the children give up themselves. So each generation keeps failing the next. #Quote by Dorothy Whipple
Failing quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#97. The logical upshot of liberalism's hatred of hypocrisy is that it is better for the liar to champion lying, the glutton to advocate gluttony, the adulterer to celebrate adultery, than for someone to preach the right thing if he himself occasionally does the wrong thing. Better to let your failings define you and be happy about it, than to let your ideals define you but then fall short of them, for that opens you up to the charge of hypocrisy. #Quote by Jonah Goldberg
Failing quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#98. We cannot fail in following nature. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Failing quotes by Stephanie Lahart
#99. I don't mind failing because that means I'm trying. But giving up, now that's something that I'm just not willing to do. I will continue to try and try again. I will keep my peace, stay focused, and know that my time will come. My positive attitude will not depart me. I will hold it close and keep on striving, knowing that what's meant for me, will be. Nothing and nobody can stop it! My dedication and hard work won't fail me, but most importantly, I won't fail myself. I'm a winner and I'm a fighter! I don't allow challenges to stop me. #Quote by Stephanie Lahart
Failing quotes by Sam Harris
#100. Any conception of human well-being you could plausibly have, the Taliban patently fails to maximize it. #Quote by Sam Harris
Failing quotes by Bryan Caplan
#101. There are two sources of error: Either you lack sufficient data, or you fail to take advantage of the data that you have. #Quote by Bryan Caplan
Failing quotes by Cherrie L Moraga
#102. In this country, lesbianism is a poverty-as is being brown, as is being a woman, as is being just plain poor. The danger lies in ranking the oppressions. The danger lies in failing to acknowledge the specificity of the oppression. The danger lies in attempting to deal with oppression purely from a theoretical base. Without an emotional, heartfelt grappling with the source of our own oppression, without naming the enemy within ourselves and outside of us, no authentic, non-hierarchical connection among oppressed groups can take place.

When the going gets rough, will we abandon our so-called comrades in a flurry of racist/heterosexist/what-have-you panic? To whose camp, then, should the lesbian of color retreat? Her very presence violates the ranking and abstraction of oppression. Do we merely live hand to mouth? Do we merely struggle with the "ism" that's sitting on top of our heads?

The answer is: yes, I think first we do; and we must do so thoroughly and deeply. But to fail to move out from there will only isolate us in our own oppression- will only insulate, rather than radicalize us. #Quote by Cherrie L Moraga
Failing quotes by James F. Cooper
#103. We can all perceive the difference between ourselves and our inferiors, but when it comes to a question of the difference between us and our superiors we fail to appreciate merits of which we have no proper conceptions. #Quote by James F. Cooper
Failing quotes by Bill Bailey
#104. Of course, uh, the universe is gradually slowing down and, uh, will eventually collapse inwardly on itself, according to the laws of entropy when all it's thermal and mechanical functions fail, thus rendering all human endeavors ultimately pointless. Just to put the gig in some sort of context. #Quote by Bill Bailey
Failing quotes by Helen Keller
#105. I can not do everything, but I can do something. I must not fail to do the something that I can do. #Quote by Helen Keller
Failing quotes by Ozzy Osbourne
#106. The power of people, when they focus on something positive, never fails to amaze me. #Quote by Ozzy Osbourne
Failing quotes by T. S. Eliot
#107. The True Church can never fail. For it is based upon a rock. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Failing quotes by Iain M. Banks
#108. They're on a cusp; a highly heterogeneous but highly connected
and stressedly connected
civilization. I'm not sure that one approach could encompass the needs of their different systems. The particular stage of communication they're at, combining rapidity and selectivity, usually with something added to the signal and almost always with something missed out, means that what passes for truth often has to travel at the speed of failing memories, changing attitudes, and new generations. Even when this form of handicap is recognized all they ever try to do, as a rule, is codify it, tidy it up. Their attempts of filter become part of the noise, and they seem unable to bring any more thought to bear on the matter than that which leads them to try and simplify what can only be understood by coming to terms with its complexity. #Quote by Iain M. Banks
Failing quotes by Lee Min-ho
#109. Those who give up cannot gain victory. It's not victory that is so important, but the fighting spirit. Even if you fail, I think even just the attitude of not giving up is beautiful in itself. #Quote by Lee Min-ho
Failing quotes by Lisa Pulitzer
#110. The fear of displeasing God and failing our religious responsibilities is so great that it pushes most members to do anything for the priesthood. For many women, this means they must sacrifice their own desires, needs, and feelings to conform to those of their husband and their religious beliefs. #Quote by Lisa Pulitzer
Failing quotes by Charlotte Alington Barnard
#111. I cannot sing the old songs, I sang long years ago, For heart and voice would fail me, And foolish tears would flow. #Quote by Charlotte Alington Barnard
Failing quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#112. Cling, therefore, to Jesus in life and death; trust yourself to the glory of Him who alone can help you when all others fail. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Failing quotes by Abraham Maslow
#113. One's only failure is failing to live up to one's own possibilities. #Quote by Abraham Maslow
Failing quotes by Augustus De Morgan

Astronomers! What can avail
Those who calumniate us;
Experiment can never fail
With such an apparatus ... #Quote by Augustus De Morgan
Failing quotes by Edward McKendree Bounds
#115. Praying that does not result in right thinking and right living is a farce. We have missed the whole office of prayer if it fails to purge our character and correct conduct. We have failed entirely to understand the virtue of prayer, if it does not bring about the revolutionizing of life. In the very nature of tings, we must either quit praying or quit our bad conduct. #Quote by Edward McKendree Bounds
Failing quotes by Deborah Harkness
#116. Tabitha strutted into the house through the cat door. With a look of complete devotion, she dropped a tiny, dead field mouse at Matthew's feet.
"Merci, ma petite," Matthew said gravely. "Unfortunately, I am not hungry at present." Tabitha yowled in frustration and hauled her offering off to the corner, where she punished it by batting it between her paws for failing to please Matthew. #Quote by Deborah Harkness
Failing quotes by Richard Bausch
#117. I don't teach writing. I teach patience. Toughness. Stubbornness. The willingness to fail. I teach the life. The odd thing is most of the things that stop an inexperienced writer are so far from the truth as to be nearly beside the point. When you feel glosbal doubt about your talent, that is your talent. People who have no talent don't have any doubt. #Quote by Richard Bausch
Failing quotes by Robin McKinley

Failing quotes by William Glasser

Failing quotes by Bruce Sterling

Failing quotes by Francesco Guicciardini
#123. If you attempt certain things at the right time, they are easy to accomplish - in fact, they almost get done by themselves. If you undertake them before the time is right, not only will they fail, but they will often become impossible to accomplish even when the time would have been right. #Quote by Francesco Guicciardini
Failing quotes by David Harsanyi

Failing quotes by Richard Walters
#125. We have a stewardship responsibility to keep ourselves healthy physically and emotionally. If we don't, we cannot carry out our obligations to God, to family, to our employer, or to others. With this in mind, we put limits on the extent to which we allow others to abuse us. Doing right will mean abuse part of the time; that goes with the turf. But inviting abuse or failing to deal with it is wrong. #Quote by Richard Walters

Failing quotes by Joseph Brodsky
#135. By failing to read or listen to poets, society dooms itself to inferior modes of articulation, those of the politician, the salesman, or the charlatan. In other words, it forfeits its own evolutionary potential. For what distinguishes us from the rest of the animal kingdom is precisely the gift of speech. Poetry is not a form of entertainment and in a certain sense not even a form of art, but it is our anthropological, genetic goal. Our evolutionary, linguistic beacon. #Quote by Joseph Brodsky
Failing quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Failing quotes by Ellen G. White
#137. It is important that we relish the food we eat. If we cannot do this, but eat mechanically, our food does not do us that good it should, and we fail to be nourished and built up by it as we otherwise would be, if we could enjoy the food we take into the stomach. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Failing quotes by Taylor Swift
#138. My career always involved being the person in charge of what I was portraying to people. I never wanted to be an image of something I didn't believe in, an image that somebody else had put together. The idea of that just really scared me, more than the idea of failing. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Failing quotes by Benjamin Carson

Failing quotes by Stephen Fry
#140. But, I fear I spend far too little time apologising for or feeling ashamed about things which really do merit sincere apology and outright contrition.
Failing to imagine what it is like to be someone else.
•Pissing my life away.
•Dishonesty with self and others.
•Neglecting to pick up the phone or write letters.
•Not connecting made or processed objects
•with their provenance.
•Judging without facts.
•Using influence over others for my own ends.
•Causing pain. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Failing quotes by Chris Messina

Failing quotes by Steven E. Woodworth
#142. and he became a communist. He was court-martialed but allowed to resign from the army. In the revolutions of 1848 he fought to overthrow his king and, failing, fled to America. There he became first a carpenter and then the editor of a German-language newspaper in Cincinnati with a slant so leftist he earned the nickname "Reddest of the Red." When the Civil War came, Willich recruited fifteen hundred Cincinnati Germans within a matter of hours and helped organize the Ninth Ohio-now marching with the XIV Corps. #Quote by Steven E. Woodworth
Failing quotes by Nicholas Wade
#143. The genes supply the motivation for warfare, [E. O.] Wilson is saying, in humans as they do in chimps, but people, blessed with the power of language, look for some objective cause of war. A society psychs itself up to go to war by agreeing that their neighbors have wronged them, whether by seizing property or failing to deliver on some promise. Religious leaders confirm that the local deity favors their cause and off go the troops. #Quote by Nicholas Wade
Failing quotes by Justin Timberlake

Failing quotes by Brian Greene

Failing quotes by Tal Ben-Shahar
#146. Failure is an inescapable part of life and a critically important part of any successful life. We learn to walk by falling, to talk by babbling, to shoot a basket by missing, and to color the inside of a square by scribbling outside the box. Those who intensely fear failing end up falling short of their potential. We either learn to fail or we fail to learn. #Quote by Tal Ben-Shahar

Failing quotes by Lauren Smith
#149. Where the bloody hell is my wife?" Godric yelled into the aether.
As if in response, a footman came up the stairs and handed Cedric a slip of paper. Dumbfounded, Cedric opened it and read it aloud.

My Dear Gentlemen,
We await you in the dining room. Please do not join us until you have decided upon a course of action regarding the threat to Lord Sheridan. We will be more than delighted to offer our opinions on the matter, but in truth, we suspect you do not wish to hear our thoughts. It is a failing of the male species, and we shan't hold it against you. In the future, however, it would be advisable not to lock us in a room. We simply cannot resist a challenge, something you should have learned by now. Intelligent women are not to be trifled with.
Fondest Regards,
~ The Society of Rebellious Ladies ~

"Fondest regards?" Lucien scoffed.
A puzzled Jonathan added, "Society of Rebellious Ladies?"
"Lord help us!" Ashton groaned as he ran a hand through his hair. "They've named themselves."
"I'll wager a hundred pounds that Emily's behind this. Having a laugh at our expense," Charles said in all seriousness.
"Let's go and see how rebellious they are when we're done with them." Cedric rolled up the sleeves of his white lawn shirt as he and the others stalked down the stairs to the dining room. They found it empty. The footman reappeared and Cedric wondered if perhaps the man had never left. At the servant's polit #Quote by Lauren Smith

Failing quotes by Ian Gregor
#151. Recognising such dimensions implicit to the reading experience can distract from the immediacy of our response; it can substitute literary archaeology for novelistic reality. That is one pole. But the other extreme is equally limiting. By failing to realise the issues involved in communicating with fictional modes that are different
to our own, in effect we do not read in the fullest sense. Between intellectual pedantry and cultivated ignorance I would pose a third approach to reading - that of the informed imagination. After occupying this position true evaluation can begin. #Quote by Ian Gregor
Failing quotes by Anthony H. Cordesman
#152. If they succeed in creating an inclusive structure in virtually any peaceful form, Iraq succeeds. If they fail, the U.S.-led coalition fails almost regardless of its military success and that of the new Iraqi forces, and Iraq will move towards division, paralysis, civil conflict and/or a new strongman. #Quote by Anthony H. Cordesman
Failing quotes by Matthew Pearl
#153. When Dickens arrives in the United States in November of 1867, he's already in questionable health. So by the end of the trip, he was really in failing condition, and really, he would never recover completely after this point, and you could sort of draw a straight line to his ultimate decline and death. #Quote by Matthew Pearl
Failing quotes by Samuel Johnson
#154. It is not indeed certain, that the most refined caution will find a proper time for bringing a man to the knowledge of his own failing, or the most zealous benevolence reconcile him to that judgment by which they are detected; but he who endeavours only the happiness of him whom he reproves will always have either the satisfaction of obtaining or deserving kindness; if he succeeds, he benefits his friend; and if he fails, he has at least the consciousness that he suffers for only doing well. #Quote by Samuel Johnson

Failing quotes by Andrew R.  Williams
#157. After changing shape several times, the ball eventually turned into a huge face. It floated alongside the air-car. This time, time instead of sending him a mental message, the face spoke out aloud and the whole air-car vibrated with its intensity. "If you are foolish enough to renege on your contract, you will be severely punished. For your sake, I hope you wouldn't do such a thing." When Tarmy made no attempt to respond, the face turned and pressed itself against the millipede-free window. A moment later, Tarmy felt the fat slug entering his mind, the sign that the face was attempting to use its powers to obtain his response by other means. But as the slug dug deeper, Samantha's cover stories began springing out of the corners of his mind. Instead of obtaining Tarmy's agreement, all that the face saw was a burning army transporter surrounded by bodies. Undeterred, the face continued its assault. Samantha had anticipated that Tarmy might come up against an adept, so the mental images of death and destruction flowed unchecked. After failing to break Tarmy's defences, the face removed the slug and tried reason. "You can't win, Mr Tarleton, so why don't you do yourself a favour and cooperate? It will be better for you in the long run. Now, where is the miniature pulse drive engine?" Tarmy realised why the millipedes hadn't been allowed to attack. It was obvious that the Great Ones were hoping to retrieve the engine. When Tarmy didn't respond, the face said, "I am prepared to ove #Quote by Andrew R. Williams

Failing quotes by Sally Ride
#170. Eventually private enterprise will be able to send people into orbit, but I suspect initially it's going to have to be with NASA's help. Whether it's going to be a consortium or one entity remains to be seen. I could be wrong. I could be one of the old fogies! Rocket science is tough, and rockets have a way of failing. It happens. A company has to be willing to bear the risk of its rocket failing. It's a very large capital investment. #Quote by Sally Ride
Failing quotes by William Howard Taft

There is only one thing I wast to say about Ohio that has a political tinge, and that is that I think a mistake has been made of recent years in Ohio in failing to continue as our representatives the same people term after term. I do not need to tell a Washington audience, among whom there are certainly some who have been interested in legislation, that length of service in the House and in the Senate is what gives influence. #Quote by William Howard Taft

Failing quotes by Rob Sheffield
#179. For two weeks, I lay awake at night and said Hail Marys over and over to stop my heart from beating too fast. I suddenly realized how much being a husband was about fear: fear of not being able to keep somebody safe, of not being able to protect somebody from all the bad stuff you want to protect them from. Knowing they have more tears in them than you will be able to keep them from crying. I realized that Renee had seen me fail, and that she was the person I was going to be failing in front for the rest of my life. It was just a little failure, but it promised bigger failures to come. Additional ones, anyway. But that's who your wife is, the person you fail in front of. Love it so confusing; there's no peace of mind. #Quote by Rob Sheffield
Failing quotes by Cory Booker
#180. As people come to understand the environmental damages being caused by carbon and industry pollutants, there is a call for "full-cost accounting." This is an effort to include the adverse environmental costs of manufacturing and other production in the price of producing those items--from the cost of cleanup to the health impacts of carbon pollution. Currently, companies' profit-and-loss statements don't account for these and other costs, which are paid for by us all, and disproportionately by the poor and vulnerable. By failing to pay for the real cost of production, by misrepresenting or ignoring the vast consequences of some of their work, certain businesses and corporations have pursued paths that are at odds with the interests of society. A greater movement toward full-cost accounting is critical if we are going to align business decisions with what is in the best interests of future generations... #Quote by Cory Booker
Failing quotes by Caroline Knapp

Failing quotes by Rick Warren
#182. All sin, at its root, is failing to give God glory. It is loving anything else more than God. Refusing to bring glory to God is prideful rebellion, and it is the sin that caused Satan's fall - and ours, too. In different ways we have all lived for our own glory, not God's. The Bible says, "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."9 #Quote by Rick Warren
Failing quotes by Marcel Proust

Failing quotes by Lao-Tzu
#185. Rushing into action, you fail.
Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project to completion,
you ruin what was almost ripe.
Therefore the Master takes action
by letting things take their course.
He remains as calm at the end
as at the beginning.
He has nothing,
thus has nothing to lose.
What he desires is non-desire;
what he learns is to unlearn.
He simply reminds people
of who they have always been.
He cares about nothing but the Tao.
Thus he can care for all things. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Failing quotes by Joan Robinson

Failing quotes by Masashi Kishimoto
#187. It is fine to imitate a being you respect, but you cannot become that very being.
Imitation is something one does to grow and develop. It is not something you use to deceive yourself.
You absorb in yourself the things you think have some kind of value, but even if you try to find the meaning about your true self you will not find anything. Because those who cannot accept their real self always fail. #Quote by Masashi Kishimoto
Failing quotes by John G. Stackhouse Jr.
#188. Beyond the family or particular Christian tradition, how much effort do we make to consider what the Mennonites or the Episcopalians, the Baptists or the Pentecostals, the Methodists or the Presbyterians have to say to the rest of us out of their DIFFERENCES, as well as out of the affirmation in common with other Christians? As I suggested earlier, our patterns of ecumenicity tend to bracket out our differences rather than to celebrate and capitalize upon them. Finding common ground has been the necessary first step in ecumenical relations and activity. But the next step is to acknowledge and enjoy what God has done elsewhere in the Body of Christ. And if at the congregational level we are willing to say, 'I can't do everything myself, for I am an ear: I must consult with a hand or an eye on this matter,' I suggest that we do the same among whole traditions. If we do not regularly and programmatically consult with each other, we are tacitly claiming that we have no need of each other, and that all the truth, beauty, and goodness we need has been vouchsafed to us by God already. Not only is such an attitude problematic in terms of our flourishing, as I have asserted, but in this context now we must recognize how useless a picture this presents to the rest of society. Baptists, Presbyterians, and Roman Catholics failing to celebrate diversity provide no positive examples to societies trying to understand how to celebrate diversity on larger scales. #Quote by John G. Stackhouse Jr.
Failing quotes by Kiefer Sutherland
#189. People respond to a guy who is trapped and succeeds on some level and fails on another. #Quote by Kiefer Sutherland
Failing quotes by Frederick Weisel
#190. As the chapters took shape, a change came over her. It was the double-sided recognition that this book, the last that she would write, might achieve esteem and success equal to her great novel, but that its emotional heart would lie in her own unhappiness for having failed to find the one thing she wanted. For the first time she was a character in her own writing, and her frailties and mistakes were trapped on the page by the beauty and unsparing focus of her prose. Towards the end it was a battle to finish a page. The story was the story she had told herself for decades, deep within her own mind, and now as it grew, line by line, on the paper before her, she wrestled with each turn in the path all over again, as if it were still possible to change its course with the power of her words. #Quote by Frederick Weisel
Failing quotes by Alice Walker

Failing quotes by Jonathan Rauch
#193. That was the day I realized that he could not cope and I could not cope and, emotionally, he could take me down with him. And I discovered in myself an awful determination not to let that happen. From that moment, I was determined to get him out of his apartment and under professional eyes, or, failing that, to protect myself. How to protect myself, I didn't know. Hire help over his objections? Take him to court and seek to have him declared incompetent? Report him to Adult Protective Services? Use my ownership of his apartment to force him out? All I knew was that, at that point, I believed myself capable of doing such things, or even of washing my hands of the situation if he would not listen to reason. I imagined telling an indignant world that I had tried my best and could do no more. You have no idea what a thing it is to have that sort of conversation with yourself about a parent. #Quote by Jonathan Rauch
Failing quotes by Gavin Bryars
#194. It makes sense to invest in new work. It's almost like having a research department in a scientific laboratory. You have to try things out. You'll make some bad mistakes. Some things will fail but at least you'll energise the organisation. #Quote by Gavin Bryars
Failing quotes by Luis Barragan

Failing quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#196. Any system that does not allow one to question it, has its roots digging into manipulation and control. And manipulation and control are devised by people in power. Not by gods and angels. If you fear questioning what you have been taught and if you fear to think freely and make decisions based upon what you feel, see and know; because a system has taught you to have that fear, you should know that you are under that manipulation, you are under that control. You have this one life and you are planning to live it based upon a path dictated to you as the truth, instead of questioning and seeking what the truth might actually be. Truth does not need to tell you not to look left and not to look right, because the validity of its character does not depend upon whether you open your eyes or not! Truth remains true in all times and it will encourage you to think freely, to ask questions, and to seek! Truth is not a fragile thing easily broken if you fail to tiptoe around it. Truth is not a fragile thing easily broken if you fail to wrap your hands around it. Truth is never failing and does not need the human race, or any other race living or dead, to validate it. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.

Failing quotes by John Templeton
#199. There is a distinction between failing and being a failure. Few things are learned in life without failing at least once. Did you learn to roller skate without falling a few times? Did you learn to ride a bike without losing your balance? Chances are you didn't. You may have wanted to do those things so intensely that you quickly put unsuccessful attempts behind you and kept trying. Soon you acquired the skill to do the thing you wanted. Even though in the process of learning you may have failed many times, you were not a failure. "Failing" simply became an open door to try again. #Quote by John Templeton
Failing quotes by Martin Luther
#200. I have before me God's Word which cannot fail, nor can the gates of hell prevail against it; thereby will I remain, though the whole world be against me. #Quote by Martin Luther
