Failure quotes by Frederic Lawrence Knowles
#1. I find no foeman in the road but fear; to doubt is failure and to dare success. #Quote by Frederic Lawrence Knowles
Failure quotes by Michelle Alexander
#2. The growing consensus among experts was perhaps best reflected by the National Advisory Commission on Criminal Justice Standards and Goals, which issued a recommendation in 1973 that "no new institutions for adults should be built and existing institutions for juveniles should be closed."17 This recommendation was based on their finding that "the prison, the reformatory and the jail have achieved only a shocking record of failure. There is overwhelming evidence that these institutions create crime rather than prevent it. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Failure quotes by Marc Vachon
#3. Today humanitarianism is in search of an identity, especially after the war in Iraq. In a perfect world, humanitarianism would not exist. People wouldn't die of thirst or starvation. So humanitarian activity is in itself an admission of failure. #Quote by Marc Vachon
Failure quotes by T.J. Klune
#4. There are moments in your life, moments when chances have to be taken. It's scary because there is always the possibility of failure. I know that. I KNOW that. Because once upon a time, I took a chance on a man that I had failed before. I was SCARED. I was TERRIFIED. I thought I might lose everything. But I wasn't living, then. The life I had before wasn't LIVING. It was getting by. And I will never regret the chances I took. Because it brought me to them. To all of them. I made my choice. And you're making yours.

Don't you wish things could be different? #Quote by T.J. Klune
Failure quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#5. I learned to recognize failure. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Failure quotes by Catherine Ponder
#6. Failure is nothing but success trying to be born in a bigger way. Most seeming failures are just installments toward victory! #Quote by Catherine Ponder
Failure quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#7. A journey will have pain and failure. It is not only the steps forward that we must accept. It is the stumbles. The trials. The knowledge that we will fail. That we will hurt those around us.
But if we stop, if we accept the person we are when we fail, the journey ends. That failure becomes our destination. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Failure quotes by Pat McBride
#8. When we are angry, we will use a lie as fast as a truth if we can hurt with it. Anger feels strong but it is actually a disguised weakness. To someone with their eyes closed, all the pictures that you show them will seem the same. It is better to whisper words of love instead of trying to find a better picture. The end of a relationship is not a failure any more than the end of a book is a failure. #Quote by Pat McBride
Failure quotes by Hans Eysenck
#9. In our tabulation of psychoanalytic results, we have classed those who stopped treatment together with those not improved. This appears to be reasonable; a patient who fails to finish his treatment, and is not improved, is surely a therapeutic failure. #Quote by Hans Eysenck
Failure quotes by Frederick Weisel
#10. Of course, when you fall out of love, it's rarely about just one failure or one betrayal, is it? ...
How does it happen? All those things you once loved about each other are replaced by other things that remind you of something you hate until you're always setting each other off, and what you share is a battleground. In the end, the failure turns out to be less about sex - which surprises most men - and more about loss of respect. One morning your partner looks at you across the bed and wonders at the waywardness of her own heart - how, she asks herself, can she feel such disdain for someone she once felt such love? #Quote by Frederick Weisel
Failure quotes by Brigid Kemmerer
#11. Failure isn't absolute. #Quote by Brigid Kemmerer
Failure quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#12. Failure to summon forth the courage to risk a nondogmatic and nonevasive stance on such crucial existential matters can also blur our ethical vision. If our actions in the world are to stem from an encounter with what is central in life, they must be unclouded by either dogma or prevarication. Agnosticism is no excuse for indecision. If anything, it is a catalyst for action; for in shifting concern away from a future life and back to the present, it demands an ethics of empathy rather than a metaphysics of fear and hope. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Failure quotes by Rick Warren
#13. I don't know all the keys to success, but one key to failure is to try to please everyone. Being controlled by the opinions of others is a guaranteed way to miss God's purposes for your life. #Quote by Rick Warren
Failure quotes by Oscar Wilde
#14. My dear boy, the people who only love once in their lives are really the shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of the intellect - simply a confession of failures. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Failure quotes by Frank Herbert
#15. When I was writing Dune there was no room in my mind for concerns about the book's success or failure. I was concerned only with the writing. Six years of research had preceded the day I sat down to put the story together, and the interweaving of the many plot layers I had planned required a degree of concentration I had never before experienced. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Failure quotes by Nadia Boulanger
#16. It is nothing to succeed if one has not taken great trouble, and it is nothing to fail if one has done the best one could. #Quote by Nadia Boulanger
Failure quotes by Meir Ezra
#17. When you are certain, failure is an impossibility #Quote by Meir Ezra
Failure quotes by Scott Adams
#18. Pessimism is often a failure of imagination. #Quote by Scott Adams
Failure quotes by Thomas Bernhard
#19. She had been unable to stand the people at the inn. The company had disgusted her. For an instant, but that instant was now long gone, she had thought of returning to her home, to Persia. Or to Greece, where she had friends, but she had dropped the idea
again. From me she had expected salvation, but I too had disappointed her. I was, much as she was, a lost and ultimately ruinous person, even though I did not admit that to her, she could feel it, she knew it. No salvation could come from such a person. On the contrary, such a person only pushed one even deeper into despair and hopelessness. Schumann, Schopenhauer, these were the two words she said after a prolonged silence and I had the impression that she was smiling as she said them, and then nothing again for a long time. She had had everything, heard and seen everything, that was enough. She did not wish to hear from anyone any more. People were utterly distasteful to her, the whole of human society had profoundly disappointed her and abandoned her in her disappointment. There would have been no point in saying anything, and so I just listened and said nothing. I had, she said, on our second walk in the larch-wood, been the first person to explain to her the concept of anarchy in such a clear and decisive manner. Anarchy she said and no more, after that she was again silent. An anarchist, I had said to her in the larch-wood, was only a person who practised anarchy, she now reminded me. Everything in an intellectual m #Quote by Thomas Bernhard
Failure quotes by John R. Mott
#20. We fail to prevail with unconverted men because of our more fundamental failure to prevail with God in prayer. #Quote by John R. Mott
Failure quotes by Shaun Hick
#21. And the man who dreamt of flight has tripped and fallen in a hole. #Quote by Shaun Hick
Failure quotes by Bill Parcells
#22. Accept false steps as opportunities to learn. It's one thing to hate failure, it's another to fear it. #Quote by Bill Parcells
Failure quotes by Meir Ezra
#23. The prerequisite to failure is to stop being certain. #Quote by Meir Ezra
Failure quotes by Andy Andrews
#24. Failure exists only for the person who quits. I do not quit. #Quote by Andy Andrews
Failure quotes by Norman Mailer
#25. Growth is a greater mystery than death. All of us can understand failure, we all contain failure and death within us, but not even the successful man can begin to describe the impalpable elations and apprehensions of growth. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Failure quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#26. We are sinners. But we should not take the failure to live up to this high moral standard as an authoritative objection to the truth. We should try to do as much good as we can and to support and put up with each other. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Failure quotes by H.G.Wells
#27. He came away with an exasperated sense of failure. He denounced parliamentary government root and branch that night. Parliament was doomed. The fact that it had not listened to Rud was only one little conclusive fact in a long indictment. "It has become a series of empty forms," he said. "All over the world, always, the sawdust of reality is running out of the shapes of quasi-public things. Not one British citizen in a thousand watches what is done in Parliament; not one in a thousand Americans follows the discourses of Congress. Interest has gone. Every election in the past thirty years has been fought on gross misunderstandings. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Failure quotes by Frederic Farrar
#28. No true work since the world began was ever wasted; no true life since the world began has ever failed. Oh, understand those two perverted word, failure and success and measure them by the eternal, not the earthly, standard. When after thirty obscure, toilsome, unrecorded years in the shop of the village carpenter, one came forth to be pre-eminently the man of sorrows, to wander from city to city in homeless labors, and to expire in lonely agony upon the shameful cross
was that a failure. #Quote by Frederic Farrar
Failure quotes by Theodor Herzl
#29. Philanthropic colonization is a failure. National colonization will succeed. #Quote by Theodor Herzl
Failure quotes by Edward B. Burger
#30. Mistakes and failure are not signs of weakness; instead they are opportunities for future success. Failure is a sign of a creative mind, of original thought and strength. #Quote by Edward B. Burger
Failure quotes by Satya Nadella
#31. In our business, things look like a failure until they're not. It's pretty binary transitions. #Quote by Satya Nadella
Failure quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#32. Experience is a collection of our successes and failures. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Failure quotes by Tom DeMarco
#33. 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
Failure quotes by Simon McBurney
#34. When I was an adolescent in England, at school we had to read 'Death of a Salesman.' I remember feeling incredibly moved by the portrayal of these people and the idea with which Miller broached the whole subject of failure or failed systems, or the way that people are crushed by a system in which they find themselves. #Quote by Simon McBurney
Failure quotes by Jason Versey
#35. Whenever we make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching us. Our capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from our capacity to reach our goals. Our failures, when they happen, are just part of our growth. Shake off your blunders. How will we know our limits without... the occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Failure quotes by Steven Moffat
#36. You have to take your own bold approach, and if you do you will be rewarded with success.
Or calamitous failure. That can happen too. #Quote by Steven Moffat
Failure quotes by Alistair Begg
#37. Would anyone choose Hell over Heaven? YES! Why? Pride. They don't want to go in the only way you can go in, on your knees. They don't want to admit they are a failure, that their life is a mess. #Quote by Alistair Begg
Failure quotes by Jim Rohn
#38. One way to learn to do something right is to do something wrong. Failure must teach us, or surely success will not reward us. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Failure quotes by George MacDonald
#39. I doubt if wickedness does half as much harm as sectarianism, whether it be the sectarianism of the church or of dissent, the sectarianism whose virtue is condescension, or the sectarianism whose vice is pride. Division has done more to hide Christ from the view of men, than all the infidelity that has ever been spoken. It is the half-Christian clergy of every denomination that are the main cause of the so-called failure of the Church of Christ. #Quote by George MacDonald
Failure quotes by Jensen Ackles
#40. Some people will go to the opening of an envelope. They live their lives in the public eye and get off on it, they need it. They need that kind of adoration. If their name isn't in the tabloids once a week they feel like a failure. #Quote by Jensen Ackles
Failure quotes by Richard Castle
#41. Rejection isn't failure. Failure is giving up. Everybody gets rejected. It's how you handle it that determines where you'll end up. #Quote by Richard Castle
Failure quotes by John O'Sullivan
#42. To try is to risk failure. But risks need to be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing and is nothing. They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they cannot learn, feel change, grow, love and live. Chained by their certitudes, they are a slave; they have forfeited their freedom. Only a person who risks is free. - Leo Buscaglia #Quote by John O'Sullivan
Failure quotes by Peyton Manning
#43. The attitude with which we approach the situation can determine our success or failure. #Quote by Peyton Manning
Failure quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#44. Some blame the drug companies. I don't. They are corporations. Their managers are ordered by law to make money for the corporation. They push a certain patent policy not because of ideals,but because it is the policy that makes them the most money. And it only makes them the most money because of a certain corruption within our political system-a corruption the drug companies are certainly not responsible for. The corruption is our own politicians' failure of integrity. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Failure quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#45. English orthography satisfies all the requirements of the canons of reputability under the law of conspicuous waste. It is archaic, cumbrous, and ineffective; its acquisition consumes much time and effort; failure to acquire it is easy of detection. #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Failure quotes by Michael Josephson
#46. Character refers to dispositions and habits that determine the way that person normally responds to desires, fears, challenges, opportunities, failures and successes. #Quote by Michael Josephson
Failure quotes by Matthew Pearl
#47. There was still the temptation to believe the world was a mere trap for human sin. But sin, the way he saw it, was only the failure of an imperfectly made being to keep a perfect law. #Quote by Matthew Pearl
Failure quotes by Haruki Murakami
#48. There are three reasons I failed. Not enough training. Not enough training. And not enough training. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Failure quotes by Michael Jordan
#49. Maybe it's my own fault. Maybe I led you to believe it was easy when it wasn't. Maybe I made you think my highlights started at the free throw line, and not in the gym. Maybe I made you think that every shot I took was a game winner. That my game was built on flash, and not fire. Maybe it's my fault that you didn't see that failure gave me strength; that my pain was my motivation. Maybe I led you to believe that basketball was a God given gift, and not something I worked for every single day of my life. Maybe I destroyed the game. Or maybe you're just making excuses. #Quote by Michael Jordan
Failure quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#50. She had come to understand that American parenting was a juggling of anxieties, and that it came with having too much food: a sated belly gave Americans time to worry that their child might have a rare disease that they had just read about, made them think that they had the right to protect their child from disappointment and want and failure. A sated belly gave Americans the luxury of praising themselves for being good parents, as if caring for one's child were the exception rather than the rule. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Failure quotes by Gail Collins
#51. The Tea Party people say they're angry about socialism, but maybe they're really angry about capitalism. If there's a sense of being looked down upon, it's that sense of failure that's built into a system that assures everyone they can make it to the top, but then reserves the top for only a tiny fraction of the strivers. #Quote by Gail Collins
Failure quotes by Hart Crane
#52. The fact that The Bridge contains folk lore and other material suitable to the epic form need not therefore prove its failure as a long lyric poem, with interrelated sections. #Quote by Hart Crane
Failure quotes by Shai Agassi
#53. Sometimes people have to remind you to aim high. Most of us are afraid of aiming high for fear of failure and our biggest failure is that we aim too low. #Quote by Shai Agassi
Failure quotes by Idries Shah
#54. Western society has in the past few decades taken a great step forward, which gives its members a perhaps unparalleled opportunity. This has been due to the final recognition of the way in which people can be (and are) conditioned to believe virtually anything. Although this knowledge existed earlier, it was confined to a few, and was taught to relatively small groups, because it was considered subversive. Once, however, the paradox of change of 'faith' began to disturb Western scientists in the Korean war, they were not long in explaining - even in replicating - the phenomenon. As with so many other discoveries, this one had to wait for its acceptance until there was no other explanation. Hence, work which Western scientists could have done a century or more earlier was delayed.
Still, better late than never. What remains to be done is that the general public should absorb the facts of mind-manipulation. Failure to do so has resulted in an almost free field for the cults which are a bane of Western existence. In both East and West, the slowness of absorption of these facts has allowed narrow, political, religious and faddish fanaticism to arise, to grow and to spread without the necessary 'immunization'. In illiberal societies it is forbidden to teach these facts. In liberal ones, few people are interested: but only because mind-manipulation is assumed to be something that happens to someone else, and people are selfish in many ways, though charitable in others.

Failure quotes by K.J. Parker
#56. He was astonished at how calm he found he was. Fear of death had always energised him, making him move far more quickly than his body should have been capable of, accelerating his reactions and his thought process to a quite incredible level. This time, though, he only thought, Oh, and realised that he didn't really care all that much. He could feel his responsibilities, the love of others towards him, the unfulfilled possibilities; they were like a child's hand trying to pull him up, doing its best but simply not strong enough for the job. Above all, there was no blame. I tried to climb a wall, but I couldn't, and there it is. #Quote by K.J. Parker
Failure quotes by Colin Powell
#57. There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hardwork, and learning from failure- #Quote by Colin Powell
Failure quotes by Conan O'Brien
#58. It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique. It's not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right your perceived failure can become a catalyst for profound re-invention. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Failure quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#59. I wonder if she allowed the man to see her eagerness and scared him? Possibly her failure to wait quietly caused him to "curtail the friendship". #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Failure quotes by Ellen Kaplan
#60. A Puritan twist in our nature makes us think that anything good for us must be twice as good if it's hard to swallow. Learning Greek and Latin used to play the role of character builder, since they were considered to be as exhausting and unrewarding as digging a trench in the morning and filling it up in the afternoon. It was what made a man, or a woman -- or more likely a robot -- of you. Now math serves that purpose in many schools: your task is to try to follow rules that make sense, perhaps, to some higher beings; and in the end to accept your failure with humbled pride. As you limp off with your aching mind and bruised soul, you know that nothing in later life will ever be as difficult.

What a perverse fate for one of our kind's greatest triumphs! Think how absurd it would be were music treated this way (for math and music are both excursions into sensuous structure): suffer through playing your scales, and when you're an adult you'll never have to listen to music again. And this is mathematics we're talking about, the language in which, Galileo said, the Book of the World is written. This is mathematics, which reaches down into our deepest intuitions and outward toward the nature of the universe -- mathematics, which explains the atoms as well as the stars in their courses, and lets us see into the ways that rivers and arteries branch. For mathematics itself is the study of connections: how things ideally must and, in fact, do sort together -- beyond, around, #Quote by Ellen Kaplan
Failure quotes by Darrell Issa
#61. I don't need to be looking at every failure of government, I need to be looking where failure of government needs reform. #Quote by Darrell Issa
Failure quotes by Jacqueline Woodson
#62. Maybe this is how it happened first for everyone - adults promising us their own failed future. #Quote by Jacqueline Woodson
Failure quotes by Zig Ziglar
#63. Each failure brings you one step closer to success. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Failure quotes by Susan Cain
#64. One highly successful venture capitalist who is regularly pitched by young entrepreneurs told me how frustrated he is by his colleagues' failure to distinguish between good presentation skills and true leadership ability. "I worry that there are people who are put in positions of authority because they're good talkers, but they don't have good ideas," he said. "It's so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. #Quote by Susan Cain
Failure quotes by Richard C. Lewontin
#65. Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.
[Billions and Billions of Demons - JANUARY 9, 1997 ISSUE] #Quote by Richard C. Lewontin
Failure quotes by Paul Yingling
#66. The intellectual and moral failures common to America's general officer corps in Vietnam and Iraq constitute a crisis in American generalship. Any explanation that fixes culpability on individuals is insufficient. No one leader, civilian or military, caused failure in Vietnam or Iraq. Different military and civilian leaders in the two conflicts produced similar results. In both conflicts, the general officer corps designed to advise policymakers, prepare forces and conduct operations failed to perform its intended functions. #Quote by Paul Yingling
Failure quotes by Richard Francis Burton
#67. How melancholy a thing is success. Whilst failure inspirits a man, attainment reads the sad prosy lesson that all our glories "Are shadows, not substantial things." Truly said the sayer, "disappointment is the salt of life" a salutary bitter which strengthens the mind for fresh exertion, and gives a double value to the prize. #Quote by Richard Francis Burton
Failure quotes by John Jodzio
#68. I hated how sometimes life threw you a curveball - how you thought you were going to make some money selling a stolen tiger to make your dad proud, but then all the sudden there were drugs instead of money and then you were probably going to relapse mostly because you didn't want to disappoint your best friend who had recently drawn a very funny cartoon about an octopus on your ass cheeks that would not come off your body no matter how hard you scrubbed. #Quote by John Jodzio
Failure quotes by Joseph Chilton Pearce
#69. We actually contain a built-in ability to rise above restriction, incapacity, or limitation and, as a result of this ability, possess a vital adaptive spirit that we have not yet fully accessed. While this ability can lead us to transcendence, paradoxically it can lead also to violence; our longing for transcendence arises from our intuitive sensing of this adaptive potential and our violence arises from our failure to develop it. #Quote by Joseph Chilton Pearce
Failure quotes by Rachel Vincent
#70. I give it a fifty-fifty chance of total failure. If Kai refuses to repay a debt he legitimately owes, he'll be dishonoured in front of his entire Flight. Thunderbirds always avenge their dead, honour their word, and pay their debts. Those seem to be the only laws they have." Based on what little time I'd spent with them.
Marc frowned. "It's the 'legitimately owes' part that worries me."
"Thus the fifty-fifty shot of failure." I stared up at the nest, watching for any sign of activity. "It all depends on whether or not I'm able to bullshit him into thinking he owes us."
"The odds are always in your favour when bullshit's involved." Jace grinned, and I couldn't help returning his smile. #Quote by Rachel Vincent
Failure quotes by Atul Gawande
#71. If the conversation people think is coming is the 'death panel' conversation, that's a total failure. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Failure quotes by Mac Anderson
#72. I've come to realize that the difference in success or failure is not how you look, how you dress, or how you're educated. It's how you think ! #Quote by Mac Anderson
Failure quotes by Winston Groom
#73. I cannot, in good conscience, allow money to be wasted on a failure. #Quote by Winston Groom
Failure quotes by Alan Hirsch
#74. We will have to take risks, to chance failure, to be willing to walk away from the familiar paths that have brought us to this point. #Quote by Alan Hirsch
Failure quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#75. John thinks that the laws of the universe may themselves be evolving. He asks such questions as where were the laws of physics before the universe was created. Was there, is there a matrix, a mother field, existing outside time? All this is a bit thorny for me. I don't know. I believe that the laws are the laws. I believe that the reason there are millions of planets is the same reason there are millions of eggs. To allow for failure. There must be countless experimental situations like this one. The only thing that is not expendable is the experiment itself. Our notions of our own uniqueness are precisely that. Our notions. We will not be missed. When we have slaughtered and poisoned everything in sight and finally incinerated the earth itself then that black and lifeless lump of slag will simply revolve in the void forever. There is a place for it too. A nameless cinder of no consequence even to God. That man can halt this disaster now seems so remote a possibility as to hardly bear consideration. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Failure quotes by Carl Jung
#76. The utter failure came at the Crucifixion in the tragic words, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' If you want to understand the full tragedy of those words you must realize what they meant: Christ saw that his whole life, devoted to the truth according to his best conviction, had been a terrible illusion. He had lived it to the full absolutely sincerely, he had made his honest experiment, but it was nevertheless a compensation. On the cross his mission deserted him. But because he had lived so fully and devotedly he won through to the Resurrection body. #Quote by Carl Jung
Failure quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#77. In addition, if a person makes the error of identifying self with his work (rather than with the internal virtues that make the work possible), if self-esteem is tied primarily to accomplishments, success, income, or being a good family provider, the danger is that economic circumstances beyond the individual's control may lead to the failure of the business or the loss of a job, flinging him into depression or acute demoralization. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Failure quotes by Laini Taylor
#78. So here we are, talking about Roman unicycles and alien sandwiches and my sister's Italian misfortunes, while hanging in between us is: MY EPIC FAILURE TO CARPE. What's wrong with me? #Quote by Laini Taylor
Failure quotes by Mary Karr
#79. Gary Shteyngart has written a memoir for the ages. I spat laughter on the first page and closed the last with wet eyes. Un-put-down-able in the day and a half I spent reading it, Little Failure is a window into immigrant agony and ambition, Jewish angst, and anybody's desperate need for a tribe. Readers who've fallen for Shteyngart's antics on the page will relish the trademark humor. But here it's laden and leavened with a deep, consequential, psychological journey. Brave and unflinching, Little Failure is his best book to date #Quote by Mary Karr
Failure quotes by Michael Bennett
#80. If you can tolerate the humiliation and helplessness and admit that you're an out-of-control fuckup, it frees you from expectations that you can't possibly meet, promises you can't keep, and appearances you can't maintain; it liberates you from the ensuring cycle of endless failure. #Quote by Michael Bennett
Failure quotes by Alice Smith
#81. Our powerlessness is largely a result of our prayerlessness. We are eating the bitter fruit of our failure to pray. Our children, government, churches and society are reaping the result of dry eyes in the pews and crusty hearts in the pulpits. Ed Silvoso says it well in his book That None Should Perish: When Christians begin to pray for the felt needs of the lost, God surprises them with almost immediate answers to prayer. In fact, prayer for the needs of that one-hundredth sheep is the spiritual equivalent of dialing 911.3 #Quote by Alice Smith
Failure quotes by George Eliot
#82. In all failures, the beginning is certainly the half of the whole. #Quote by George Eliot
Failure quotes by Ogwo David Emenike
#83. If your failure is not a lesson, it's indeed a failure. #Quote by Ogwo David Emenike
Failure quotes by Virginia Eubanks
#84. While poorhouses have been physically demolished, their legacy remains alive and well in the automated decision-making systems that encage and entrap today's poor. For all their high-tech polish, our modern systems of poverty management - automated decision-making, data mining, and predictive analysis - retain a remarkable kinship with the poorhouses of the past. Our new digital tools spring from punitive, moralistic views of poverty and create a system of high-tech containment and investigation. The digital poorhouse deters the poor from accessing public resources; polices their labor, spending, sexuality, and parenting; tries to predict their future behavior; and punishes and criminalizes those who do not comply with its dictates. In the process, it creates ever-finer moral distinctions between the 'deserving' and 'undeserving' poor, categorizations that rationalize our national failure to care for one another. #Quote by Virginia Eubanks
Failure quotes by Thomas Edison
#85. You only fail when you stop trying. #Quote by Thomas Edison
Failure quotes by Alejandro Jodorowsky
#86. Failure doesn't exist. It's only a change of direction. #Quote by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Failure quotes by Edward Kennedy
#87. The real transgression occurs when religion wants government to tell citizens how to live uniquely personal parts of their lives. The failure of Prohibition proves the futility of such an attempt when a majority or even a substantial minority happens to disagree. Some questions may be inherently individual ones, or people may be sharply divided about whether they are. In such cases, like Prohibition and abortion, the proper role of religion is to appeal to the conscience of the individual, not the coercive power of the state. #Quote by Edward Kennedy
Failure quotes by Cate Blanchett
#88. I don't understand a way to work other than bold-facedly running towards failure. #Quote by Cate Blanchett
Failure quotes by Thomas Piketty
#89. I belong to a generation that came of age listening to news of the collapse of the Communist dicatorships and never felt the slightest affection or nostalgia for those regimes or for the Soviet Union. I was vaccinated for life against the conventional but lazy rhetoric of anticapitalism, some of which simply ignored the historic failure of Communism and much of which turned its back on the intellectual means necessary to push beyond it. I have no interest in denouncing inequality or capitalism per se - especially since social inequalities are not in themselves a problem as long as they are justified, that is, "founded only upon common utility," as article 1 of the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen proclaims. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Failure quotes by Wade Schalles
#90. Winners expect to win before the contest starts; losers don't. Any individual becomes what he or she thinks about most. If you want to be a champion, then that thought must dominate your life. But most important, winners dwell on the rewards of winning; losers dwell on the penalties of failure. #Quote by Wade Schalles
Failure quotes by T. Harv Eker
#91. The single biggest difference between financial success and financial failure is how well you manage your money. It's simple: to master money, you must manage money. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Failure quotes by Elizabeth Langston
#92. I think it must be one of those things where no one's wrong and everybody loses. #Quote by Elizabeth Langston
Failure quotes by Scott F. Falkner
#93. At some point you need to stop looking out at others and start looking inward, at yourself, at your own accomplishments, at your own foibles, at your own successes and your own failures. It's only when you begin to look inward that you can begin to have an effect on those out there, the ones with the greedy eyes and outstretched hands. #Quote by Scott F. Falkner
Failure quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#94. What is indisputable is the fact that unbelief is the force that gives birth to all of our bad behavior and every moral failure. It is the root. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Failure quotes by Garry Shandling
#95. I think it's one of the main negative emotional ingredients that fuels show business, because there's so much at stake and the fear of failure looms large. #Quote by Garry Shandling
Failure quotes by Alastair Arnott
#96. Error, failure, and being wrong are central to our development. We just aren't using them as much as we should…yet. #Quote by Alastair Arnott
Failure quotes by Karlyle Tomms
#97. Failure is inevitable. Everybody fails. Success is reserved for those few who are unafraid to fail and try again. #Quote by Karlyle Tomms
Failure quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#98. Damn, all I wanted was a drink of coffee and one little beignet. Coffee ... Daimons ... Coffee ... Daimons. (Talon)
I think in this case the Daimons better win. (Wulf)
Yeah, but it's chicory coffee. (Talon)
Talon wanting to be toasted by Acheron for failure to protect humans. (Wulf) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Failure quotes by Russell Simmons
#99. People are afraid of failure - they don't like to work so hard and have people keep saying, 'No.' I think that's what people fear most. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Failure quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#100. Not only do we learn more from failure than success, we learn more from bigger failures because we scrutinize them more closely. Long #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Failure quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#101. Don't let fear of failure discourage you. Don't let the voice of critics paralyze you - whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Failure quotes by Jan Morris
#102. Sigmund Freud was also frustrated here. In a city that later embraced his ideas with particular zeal, being organically inclined towards neurosis, he himself found only failure. He came to Trieste on the train from Vienna in 1876, commissioned by the Institute of Comparative Anatomy at Vienna University to solve a classically esoteric zoological puzzle: how eels copulated. Specialist as he later became in the human testicle and its influence upon the psyche, Freud diligently set out to discover the elusive reproductive organs whose location had baffled investigators since the time of Aristotle. He did not solve the mystery, but I like to imagine him dissecting his four hundred eels in the institute's zoological station here. Solemn, earnest and bearded I fancy him, rubber-gloved and canvas-aproned, slitting them open one after the other in their slimy multitudes. Night after night I see him peeling off his gloves with a sigh to return to his lonely lodgings, and saying a weary goodnight to the lab assistant left to clear up the mess - "Goodnight, Alfredo", "Goodnight, Herr Doktor. Better luck next time, eh?" But the better luck never came; the young genius returned to Vienna empty-handed, so to speak, but perhaps inspired to think more exactly about the castration complex. #Quote by Jan Morris
Failure quotes by Paul Delano Butler
#103. Criminal justice is what happens after a complicated series of events has gone bad. It is the end result of failure
the failure of a group of people that sometimes includes, but is never limited to, the accused person. #Quote by Paul Delano Butler
Failure quotes by Jason Versey
#104. Recognize your failures when they happen but don't dwell on them. Instead, focus on the successes you have had in your life. If you've done it once, you can do it again. Build on that. Letting thoughts of past failures creep into your mindset are nothing but dream killing distractions. #Quote by Jason Versey
Failure quotes by Ian Fleming
#105. He shrugged his shoulders to shift the pain of failure
the pain that is so much greater than the pleasure of success. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Failure quotes by Tom DeMarco
#106. What I call bankruptcy of inventiveness is often the result of a failure to set aside the resources necessary to let invention happen. The principal resource needed for invention is slack. When companies can't invent, it's usually because their people are too damn busy. #Quote by Tom DeMarco
Failure quotes by Timothy Keller
#107. Think of people you consider fanatical. They're overbearing, self-righteous, opinionated, insensitive, and harsh. Why? It's not because they are too Christian, it's because they are not Christian enough. They are fanatically zealous and courageous, but they are not fanatically humble, sensitive, loving, emphatic, forgiving, or understanding- as Christ was ... What strikes us as overly fanatical is actually a failure to be fully committed to Christ and his gospel. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Failure quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#108. Later on in Culture and Society, Williams scores a few points by reprinting some absolutist sentences that, taken on their own, represent exaggerations or generalisations. It was a strength and weakness of Orwell's polemical journalism that he would begin an essay with a bold and bald statement designed to arrest attention - a tactic that, as Williams rightly notices, he borrowed in part from GK Chesterton and George Bernard Shaw. No regular writer can re-read his own output of ephemera without encountering a few wince-making moments of this kind; Williams admits to 'isolating' them but has some fun all the same. The flat sentence 'a humanitarian is always a hypocrite' may contain a particle of truth - does in fact contain such a particle - but will not quite do on its own. Other passages of Orwell's, on the failure of the Western socialist movement, read more convincingly now than they did when Williams was mocking them, but are somewhat sweeping for all that. And there are the famous outbursts of ill-temper against cranks and vegetarians and homosexuals, which do indeed disfigure the prose and (even though we still admire Pope and Swift for the heroic unfairness of their invective) probably deserve rebuke. However, Williams betrays his hidden bias even when addressing these relatively easy targets. He upbraids Orwell for the repeated use of the diminutive word 'little' as an insult ('The typical Socialist ... a prim little man,' 'the typical little bowlerhatted sneak,' etc. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Failure quotes by David Hambrick
#109. failure is costly, both to society and to individuals. Pretending that all people are equal in their abilities will not change the fact that a person with an average IQ is unlikely to become a theoretical physicist, or the fact that a person with a low level of music ability is unlikely to become a concert pianist. It makes more sense to pay attention to people's abilities and their likelihood of achieving certain goals, so people can make good decisions about the goals they want to spend their time, money, and energy pursuing #Quote by David Hambrick
Failure quotes by Emil Cioran
#110. An existence transfigured by failure. #Quote by Emil Cioran
Failure quotes by Kenyatta Jean-Paul Garcia
#111. ReVision The failure I saw myself grew darker and darker as the halfway halves halfway blended And somewhere there exists a world so removed from this In moonlight's beam with warriors in gloaming dreaming of being right back here at home Where the snow draped trees beat loneliness and beauty into being And the mirror wipes it all away as a glance becomes a stare And all but a few places unwrinkled and creased remain of what used to be. #Quote by Kenyatta Jean-Paul Garcia
Failure quotes by Mary Blakely
#112. Mothers are likely to have more bad days on the job than most other professionals, considering the hours: round-the-clock, seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year ... You go to work when you're sick, maybe even clinically depressed, because motherhood is perhaps the only unpaid position where failure to show up can result in arrest. #Quote by Mary Blakely
Failure quotes by Eric Greitens
#113. Failure and pain and hardship have the meaning we choose to give them. #Quote by Eric Greitens
Failure quotes by Vijay Mallya
#114. Everybody keeps saying that India's a poor country. Yes, we have poverty. But I blame the government of India, the political establishment, for their failure to educate and therefore their failure to control the poverty. #Quote by Vijay Mallya
Failure quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#115. The world will very soon be divided, unless I am mistaken, into those who still go on explaining our success, and those somewhat more intelligent who are trying to explain our failure. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Failure quotes by Michael Lam
#116. The failure to accept cancer as a systemic disease is one of the greatest failures in modern medicine. #Quote by Michael Lam
Failure quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#117. No one can be by himself or herself alone. We have to inter-be, connected with everyone and everything else. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Failure quotes by Jeremy Hardy
#118. I think we mistake sadness for depression, because life is basically sad, and its the failure to recognize that that leads to this sort of resentment and bewilderment [...] It is, it is, and [..] you know, people just suddenly think that the world owes it to them to be happy, and they're not happy and then they think well, why aren't I happy, and makes 'em angry and then they're depressed about the fact that they're angry and they're bitter about the fact that they're depressed, and this downward cycle; why don't they just accept that life is sad and cheer up, it's not forever. #Quote by Jeremy Hardy
Failure quotes by Petra Hermans
#119. Resistence is a result
of personal frustration and failure. #Quote by Petra Hermans
Failure quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#120. Never give up.' This is not sound advice, it is bad advice. You must give up when there is no point in continuing. Then begin a new course. There is no greater failure than not changing course when the time is right to do so. #Quote by Chloe Thurlow
Failure quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#121. Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance... But the thing is true; economy, properly understood, is the more poetic. Thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste. It is prosaic to throw money away, because it is prosaic to throw anything away; it is negative; it is a confession of indifference, that is, it is a confession of failure. The most prosaic thing about the house is the dustbin, and the one great objection to the new fastidious and aesthetic homestead is simply that in such a moral menage the dustbin must be bigger than the house. If a man could undertake to make use of all things in his dustbin he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare. When science began to use by-products; when science found that colors could be made out of coaltar, she made her greatest and perhaps her only claim on the real respect of the human soul. Now the aim of the good woman is to use the by-products, or, in other words, to rummage in the dustbin. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Failure quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#122. Look for small victories and build on that. Each small victory, even if it is just getting up five minutes earlier, gives you confidence. You realize that these little victories make you feel great, and you keep going. You realize that being paralyzed by fear of failure is worse than failure. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Failure quotes by Jeff Wheeler
#123. The will to do springs from the knowledge that we can do. He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure. #Quote by Jeff Wheeler
Failure quotes by George Eliot
#124. Hold up your head! You were not made for failure, you were made for victory. Go forward with a joyful confidence. #Quote by George Eliot
Failure quotes by Brendon Burchard
#125. Too often we don't call out a wrong or expect ourselves or others to act with routine integrity, excellence, or love. There has been a worldwide failure in leadership, birthing an apathetic populace, unjustifiable poverty, unconscionable greed, and a globe ravaged and booby-trapped by war. #Quote by Brendon Burchard
Failure quotes by John Roberts
#126. There is a risk of death associated with donating a piece of liver. It's about one in 500 for the risk of death. The risk of death of donating a kidney is about one in 3000, so this is a riskier operation than donating a kidney. The stakes are usually higher for the recipient of the transplant because unlike kidney failure, where you have a dialysis machine, in liver failure we don't have that kind of machine that allows a patient to survive until they can get a cadaver organ. #Quote by John Roberts
Failure quotes by Evan Williams
#127. Take care of yourself: When you don't sleep, eat crap, don't exercise, and are living off adrenaline for too long, your performance suffers. Your decisions suffer. Your company suffers. Love those close to you: Failure of your company is not failure in life. Failure in your relationship is. #Quote by Evan Williams
Failure quotes by Gerald Seymour
#128. The desire to succeed has a lot less compulsion than the fear of failure. #Quote by Gerald Seymour
Failure quotes by Steven Magee
#129. I spend most of my time with my friend called "Failure" and I really enjoy it when my best friend called "Discovery" drops by for an occasional visit. #Quote by Steven Magee
Failure quotes by Enoch Powell
#130. All political lives, unless they are cut off in midstream at a happy juncture, end in failure, because that is the nature of politics and of human affairs. #Quote by Enoch Powell
Failure quotes by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
#131. Smokers, male and female, inject and excuse idleness in their lives every time they light a cigarette. #Quote by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Failure quotes by Alex Haley
#132. I wasn't going to be one of those people who died wondering what if? I would keep putting my dreams to the test - even though it meant living with uncertainty and fear of failure. This is the shadowland of hope, and anyone with a dream must learn to live there. #Quote by Alex Haley
Failure quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#133. I know it wouldn't seem like I've had a lot of failure in my career, but there are things that I regard as failures, when I look at certain performances and go, 'That's not good enough.' #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Failure quotes by Cory Booker
#134. Real courage is holding on to a still voice in your head that says, 'I must keep going.' It's that voice that says nothing is a failure if it is not final. That voice that says to you, 'Get out of bed. Keep going. I will not quit.' #Quote by Cory Booker
Failure quotes by Harlan Ellison
#135. 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
Failure quotes by Ben Bernanke
#136. The failure of Lehman Brothers demonstrated that liquidity provision by the Federal Reserve would not be sufficient to stop the crisis; substantial fiscal resources were necessary. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Failure quotes by R.D. Laing
#137. To mystify, in the active sense, is to befuddle, cloud, obscure, mask whatever is going on, whether this be experience, action, or process, or whatever is "the issue." It induces confusion in the sense that there is failure to see what is "really" being experienced, or being done, or going on, and failure to distinguish or discriminate the actual issues. This entails the substitution of false for true constructions of what is being experienced, being done (praxis), or going on (process), and the substitution of false issues for the actual issues. #Quote by R.D. Laing
Failure quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#138. Most of my failures can be ascribed to the fact that I chose that which was 'easy' over that which was 'right'. And while it's 'right' to admit this to myself, it isn't 'easy.' So, which choice am I going to make this time? #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Failure quotes by Og Mandino
#139. I will commit not the terrible crime of aiming too low. I will do the work that a failure will not do. I will always let my reach exceed my grasp. #Quote by Og Mandino
Failure quotes by Deepak Chopra
#140. The current perception I get from the evening news is that the world is dominated by human failure, crime, catastrophe, corruption, and tragedy. We are all tuning in to see how the human mind is evolving, but the media keeps hammering home the opposite, that the human mind is mired in darkness and folly. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Failure quotes by Susan Griffin
#141. I love that moment in writing when language falls short. There is something more there. A larger body. Even by the failure of words I begin to detect its dimensions. As I work the prose, shift the verbs, look for new adjectives, a different rhythm, syntax, something new begins to come to the surface. #Quote by Susan Griffin
Failure quotes by Dani Shapiro
#142. I had no illusions that now, in some final and dramatic flash of revelation, we would understand one another. We were done. It was a fact of my life
intractable and sad
that our relationship had been a failure. Still, with her prognosis came one last chance to be her daughter. [p. 163] #Quote by Dani Shapiro
Failure quotes by Leon Bloy
#143. The only real sadness, the only real failure, the only great tragedy in life, is not to become a saint. #Quote by Leon Bloy
Failure quotes by Raymond Loewy
#144. I sought excitement and, taking chances, I was all ready to fail in order to achieve something large. #Quote by Raymond Loewy

#148. They fail, and they alone, who have not striven. #Quote by Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Failure quotes by Ayn Rand
#149. You'll come back, because yours is an error of knowledge, not a moral failure, not an act of surrender to evil, but only the last act of being victim to your own virtue. We'll wait for you and when you come back, you will have discovered that there need never be any conflict among your desires, nor so tragic a clash of values as the one you've borne so well. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Failure quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#150. Most moral philosophers consciously or unconsciously assume the essential correctness of our cultural sexual code - family, monogamy, continence, the postulate of privacy, ... restriction of intercourse to the marriage bed, etcetera. Having stipulated our cultural code as a whole, they fiddle with details - even such piffle as solemnly discussing whether or not the female breast is an "obscene" sight! But mostly they debate how the human animal can be induced or forced to obey this code, blandly ignoring the high probability that the heartaches and tragedies they see all around them originate in the code itself rather than the failure to abide by the code. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Failure quotes by Michael Lewis
#151. Success was individual achievement; failure was a social problem. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Failure quotes by Sue Campbell
#152. The framing of women's abuse narratives as quasi-legal testimony encourages the public, as interpreters, to take the stance of cross-examiners who categorize forgetting as memory failure and insist on completeness and consistency of memory detail through all repeated tellings. The condensed, summarized, or fragmentary nature of abuse memories will rarely withstand this aggressive testing. Few people's memories can. #Quote by Sue Campbell
Failure quotes by Brooke McKinley
#153. I worry about setting myself up to fail, about letting people down. If I don't try for a better life, then I don't have to worry about disappointing anybody. […] You'd be disappointing yourself, though, wouldn't you, by not taking the chance? #Quote by Brooke McKinley
Failure quotes by Julian Barnes
#154. Like what? The things Literature was all about: love, sex, morality, friendship, happiness, suffering, betrayal, adultery, good and evil, heroes and villains, guilt and innocence, ambition, power, justice, revolution, war, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the individual against society, success and failure, murder, suicide, death, God. And barn owls. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Failure quotes by Paul Theroux
#155. Travel is about failure or overcoming obstacles, overcoming failures. When a traveler is having lots of good luck, that is not a happy book. That's a book you say, well, I don't need that. I want a life lesson. I want to find out - I want a journey that reflects my life. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Failure quotes by Jarod Kintz
#156. To fly is to swim in the air, and a brick could be used as an as example to highlight man's failure to fishbird. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Failure quotes by David Ogilvy
#157. Always hold your sales meetings in rooms too small for the audience, even if it means holding them in the WC. 'Standing room only' creates an atmosphere of success, as in theatres and restaurants, while a half-empty auditorium smells of failure. #Quote by David Ogilvy
Failure quotes by Alfie Kohn
#158. four accounts of how praise may impede performance: it signals low ability, makes people feel pressured, invites a low-risk strategy to avoid failure, and reduces interest in the task itself. #Quote by Alfie Kohn
Failure quotes by Emery Lord
#159. That's the thing about love stories: Just because one ends, that doesn't mean it failed. A cherry pie isn't a failure just because you eat it all. It's perfect for what it is, and then it's gone. And exchanging the truest parts of yourself - all the things you are - with someone? What a slice of life. One I'll carry with me into every single someday.
I lie down in the cool grass beside him as planets collide above us and we stay like this for a long time, down to every last crumb. My cheeks are wet, but oh, my heart - it is so full. #Quote by Emery Lord
Failure quotes by John Fowles
#160. I acquired expensive habits and affected manners. I got a third-class degree and a first-class illusion: that I was a poet. But nothing could have been less poetic that my seeing-through-all boredom with life in general and with making a living in particular. I was too green to know that all cynicism masks a failure to cope-- an impotence, in short; and that to despise all effort is the greatest effort of all. But I did absorb a small dose of one permanently useful thing, Oxford's greatest gift to civilized life: Socratic honesty. It showed me, very intermittently, that it is not enough to revolt against one's past. One day I was outrageously bitter among some friends about the Army; back in my own rooms later it suddenly struck me that just because I said with impunity things that would have apoplexed my dead father, I was still no less under his influence. The truth was I was not a cynic by nature, only by revolt. I had got away from what I hated, but I hadn't found where I loved, and so I pretended that there was nowhere to love. Handsomely equipped to fail, I went out into the world. #Quote by John Fowles
Failure quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#161. I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that don't work. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Failure quotes by Greg Forster
#162. I think the failure of The American church to affirm the goodness of civilizational life is our greatest failing today. #Quote by Greg Forster
Failure quotes by Johnny B. Truant
#163. The sun rose. Flowers bloomed. People even continued to talk to me as if I weren't a complete failure, as if they didn't know or possibly -- unthinkably -- didn't care. Life went on. I think that's when I realized that it's all bullshit. #Quote by Johnny B. Truant
Failure quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#164. All health and success does me good, however far off and withdrawn it may appear; all disease and failure helps to make me sad anddoes me evil, however much sympathy it may have with me or I with it. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Failure quotes by Salman Rushdie

Failure quotes by George Horace Lorimer

Failure quotes by Wilferd Peterson
#168. Those who hope to avoid all failure and misfortune are trying to live in a fairyland; wise people realistically accept failures as a part of life and build philosophies to meet them and make the best of them. #Quote by Wilferd Peterson
Failure quotes by Pierce Brown
#169. I was learning the craft; I didn't study writing in school. Rejection was my motivation, and failure is what taught me. #Quote by Pierce Brown
Failure quotes by Osho
#170. In my view, he alone wins who does not desire to win, and he who wants to win loses.If someone is desiring and striving to win in life, it means that deep down he is lacking something, that he is suffering from an inferiority complex. Deep down, such a person is aware of the inferiority he is trying to cover through winning. And if, on the other hand, someone is not out to win it means he is already established in his eminence, there is not even a shade of inferiority in him to disprove by resorting to winning. #Quote by Osho
Failure quotes by Toni Morrison
#171. But the truth was she could not bear to be around thier undead,healthy children.More than envy she felt that each laughing redcheeked child of thiers was an accusation of failure,a mockery of her own. #Quote by Toni Morrison

Failure quotes by Anonymous
#177. the possession and activation of truthful information untenable for disclosure, the asking of questions that place demands on speakers for specific and detailed information, and the failure (through memory search and retrieval processes) to find associated false information that quickly can be deployed to construct a Quality violation responsive to these questions. #Quote by Anonymous

Failure quotes by Dylan Moran
#184. The terror of failure can make you feel like a failure. So a bunch of people think you're not very good at your thing. How much do you invest in what they say? How much do you care? Failure is not putting yourself on the line. #Quote by Dylan Moran
Failure quotes by Benjamin Carson
#185. Everybody has barriers and obstacles. If you look at them as containing fences that don't allow you to advance, then you're going to be a failure. If you look at them as hurdles that strengthen you each time you go over one, then you're going to be a success. #Quote by Benjamin Carson
Failure quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#186. Sometimes, you may think you have fallen into an abyss ... when in fact, you've just descended to the roots ... of the tree of life! Somewhere along your climb, you got lost amongst the branches, and lost in the darkness of the branches, the only way to find the straight way up would be to return to the roots! And from there amongst the roots, you will be able to look straight up and see the top again! And begin your ascent! #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Failure quotes by Henry Petroski
#187. 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

Failure quotes by David M. Raup
#189. There are millions of different species of animals and plants on earth
possibly as many as forty million. But somewhere between five and fifty BILLION species have existed at one time or another. Thus, only about one in a thousand species is still alive
a truly lousy survival record: 99.9 percent failure! #Quote by David M. Raup
Failure quotes by Willard Van Orman Quine
#190. Scientific method is the way to truth, but it affords, even in
principle, no unique definition of truth. Any so-called pragmatic
definition of truth is doomed to failure equally. #Quote by Willard Van Orman Quine
Failure quotes by Alan W. Hirshfeld
#191. If there was one overriding element to Faraday's character, it was humility. His 'conviction of deficiency,' as he called it, stemmed in part from his deep religiosity and affected practically every facet of his life. Thus Faraday approached both his science and his everyday conduct unhampered by ego, envy, or negative emotion. In his work, he assumed the inevitability of error and failure; whenever possible, he harnessed these as guides toward further investigation. Faraday adhered to no particular school of scientific thought. Nor did he flinch when a favored hypothesis fell to the rigors of experiment. #Quote by Alan W. Hirshfeld
Failure quotes by David Wong
#192. You can't focus on death, or failure. Otherwise you're surrendering greatness to all the people too dumb to contemplate it. #Quote by David Wong
Failure quotes by Donald Miller
#193. It's no wonder I hid from the world. It's no wonder parties made me tired or I got exhausted after I spoke. It's no wonder criticism made me angry or I overreacted to failure. I think the part of me I sent out to interact with the world was, in some ways, underdeveloped, still trying to be bigger and smarter as a measure of survival. #Quote by Donald Miller
Failure quotes by Daniel Berrigan
#194. I think that today young people come toward marriage as growing, searching men and women; and suddenly marriage and parenthood is represented as a stoppage of all that. I mean, young married people become members of a social community, and come under the authority of a political community. Once children come, even some of our more radical youth feel themselves no longer so free to protest various wrongs - because they need work and on their children's account feel more dependent on, more vulnerable to, the power of a town or city or county. They are expected to join with other consumers. They are expected to prepare the next generation for the next wars and for an expansion of the same, the very same community...
I think the Church as I have experienced it during, let's say, thirty years of membership in my order, the Church is speaking less and less to the realities before us. Just one instance is the Church's failure to face and deal with the social and political difficulties of believers. And then when one moves out to another scene, as I have been doing, and meets the people of very mixed religious and ethnic backgrounds, one sees how tragically unresponsive the Church has been - because it has not heard and been moved by the ethical struggles of people on the 'outside,' yet maybe nearer to Christ's own struggle. More and more I see the need for flexibility in the Church. And I feel that one's responsibility to the Church can no longer be expressed by the priest's or #Quote by Daniel Berrigan

#195. 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

Failure quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#197. I have thoroughly tried school-keeping, and found that my expenses were in proportion, or rather out of proportion, to my income,for I was obliged to dress and train, not to say think and believe, accordingly, and I lost my time into the bargain. As I did not teach for the good of my fellow-men, but simply for a livelihood, this was a failure. I have tried trade; but I found that it would take ten years to get under way in that, and that then I should probably be on my way to the devil. I was actually afraid that I might by that time be doing what is called a good business. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
