“Failure’s hard, but success is far more dangerous. If you’re successful at the wrong thing, the mix of praise and money and opportunity can lock you in forever.”– Po Bronson
To divide men into the successful and the unsuccessful is to look at human nature from a narrow, preconceived point of view. Are you a success or not? Am I? Was Napoleon? Is your servant Vassily? What is the criterion?
One must be a god to be able to tell successes from failures without making a mistake. --Anton Chekhov
"Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."--Winston Churchill
"There is no burden greater than a high potential."--Charles M. Schultz
"It's easier to live if you are not afraid to die."--Confucius
