Failure Quotes

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.

Paulo Coelho

Fear is bound to disappear when you realize that failure is not something shameful, damaging, destructive, or painful, but something natural.

Sri Chinmoy

Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.

Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel

Nostalgia is a necessary thing, I believe, and a way for all of us to find peace in that which we have accomplished, or even failed to accomplish. At the same time, if nostalgia precipitates actions to return to that fabled, rosy-painted time, particularly in one who believes his life to be a failure, then it is an empty thing, doomed to produce nothing but frustration and an even greater sense of failure.

R.A. Salvatore

It is not in the nature of man to accept permanent failure.

Edmund Cooper

Confucius

All who strive to live for something beyond mere selfish aims find their capacities for doing good very inadequate to their aspirations.

Lydia Maria Child

Dr. Felice Leonardo Buscaglia

For every failure, there’s an alternative course of action. You just have to find it. When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.

Mary Kay Ash

Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.

Winston Churchill

If there exists no possibility of failure, then victory is meaningless.

Robert H. Schuller

Failure defeats losers, failure inspires winners.
