The secret of life … is to fall seven times and to get up eight times. (Paulo Coelho, Brazilian lyricist and novelist)

We all stumble from time to time; that is, we make mistakes, we fail in some way or another. But, like a toddler, learning to walk, we have to get back up and keep moving forward as best we can. Success is often the result of learning from repeated failures and advancing to the next step.

Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again (Proverbs 24:16).
