Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again,
this time more intelligently. Henry Ford
Go out to fail.
Follow The Innovation F-word!
Bruce Lee - "Don't fear failure. — Not failure, but low
aim, is the crime.
In great attempts it is glorious even to fail."
The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim
is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and
we reach it. Michelangelo
