quotes about failure

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.”
~ J.K. Rowling, Harvard University, 2008

“Nobody else is paying as much attention to your failures as you are. You’re the only ones who are obsessed with the importance of your own life. To everyone else, it’s just a blip on the radar screen, so just move on.”
~ Jerry Zucker, University of Wisconsin, 2003

“It doesn’t matter how far you might rise. At some point you are bound to stumble. … If you’re constantly pushing yourself higher … the law of averages, not to mention the Myth of Icarus, predicts that you will at some point fall. And when you do I want you to know this, remember this: There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”
~ Oprah Winfrey, Harvard University, 2013

“The world doesn’t care how many times you fall down, as long as it’s one fewer than the number of times you get back up.”
~ Aaron Sorkin, Syracuse University, 2012
