Not failure, but low aim is the crime. In great attempts, it is glorious even to fail. (Bruce Lee, late martial artist)
No one wants to fail. Our plan is to succeed, to complete the task well. But, as almost everyone has discovered, things don’t always go as planned. Sometimes our project fails. A failure to reach the mountain summit may be discouraging, but it also may have been well worth the effort if the experience brought emotional growth and success.
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. (Proverbs 15:22)
