A traveller must buy his own experience, and success or failure depends mainly on personal idiosyncrasies.
Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask a failure.
(Earl Wilson said)
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
(Bill Cosby said)
A good education is not so much one which prepares a man to succeed in the world, as one which enables him to sustain a failure.
(Bernard Iddings Bell said)
Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong.
