“No man ever achieved worth-while success who did not, at one time or other, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure.”
“You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.”
The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt.
– Barack Obama
Failure comes only when we forget our ideals and objectives and principles and begin to wander away from the road that leads to their realization.
