Before telling you how good you are, I have to tell you how bad you used to be.
It is preferable to fail originally than to succeed imitating.
(Herman Melville said)
The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.
(Vidal Sassoon said)
As always victory has many fathers, while defeat is an orphan.
(Count Galeazzo Ciano said)
Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.
