Falling down is not a failure. Failure comes when you stay where you have fallen.
There is no loneliness greater than the loneliness of a failure. The failure is a stranger in his own house.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Ambition is the last refuge of the failure.
This one is a failure, and had to be, since it was written by a pillar of salt.
