Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow.
— Helen Keller
Always imitate the behavior of the winners when you lose.
— George Meredith
To bear failure with courage is the best proof of character anyone can give. Do not let anyone see your mortification, but whatever you fancy people are saying about you, go on with your life as though nothing unpleasant has happened to you.
— W. Somerset Maugham
Perhaps only when human effort had done its best and failed, would God’s power alone be free to work.
— Corrie ten Boom
I learned the lesson about not fearing failure from my dad because I’ve seen him fail and know what a great man he is. Losing a campaign does not mean losing your integrity, or losing your decency or losing his standing in my eyes or in the eyes of honorable people. We must take risks in order to succeed and if it doesn’t work out for the moment, life itself will work out in the long run.
— George W. Bush
