I never lose. I either win or learn.
Learn how to be a loser, because it’s important to be a loser to be a winner.
That loss is common would not make My own less bitter, rather more, Too common!
Greatly begin! Though thou have time But for a line, be that sublime – Not failure, but low aim is crime.
The surest way not to fail is to determine to succeed.
We are the doubles of those whose way Was festal with fruits and flowers; Body and brain we were sound as they, But the prizes were not ours.
Defeat should never be a source of discouragement, but rather a fresh stimulus.
There are few people who are more often in the wrong than those who cannot endure to be thought so.
Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret and depression. Do not repeat them in the future.
Not in the clamor of the crowded street, Not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, But in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.
