A Quote of Wisdom – “Our Failures do not Define Us” – 2/29/2020

By

“Our success defines us, when we can comprehend that we’ve made it through perseverance, not through neglect. What insane person has injected the notion into a world, that our degradation or our shame, defines us? That, through each blunder or through each fault, we are who we are, because of that? It is wrong to state that, because through such continual comparisons to failure, we become failure. So to speak, we become the walking corpse who refuses criticism, because we’ve epitomized failure. If we were to reverse such a notion, and soon compare ourselves to achievers and successors, we’d embrace the past way of the ‘pupil becoming the master’.”
