On failure

To quote Thomas Edison, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that don't work."

I've probably figured out more ways to fail than Edison.
Another relevant quote t would be "Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out." -Benjamin Franklin

that's actually paraphrased from a much longer quote, but it gets the point across much easier. I like these:

"the only experiments that fail are the ones you don't learn from"
- my high school chemistry teacher, obviously paraphrased from the dozens of other similar quotes, but that's the one that sticks with me, where I heard it first.

“There is no failure except in no longer trying.”
- attributed to various people, I forget where i heard it first, but I always remembered it.

it SCARES me how you can paraphrase a theme I'm figuring out how to put to words on my blog. Maybe I should call YOUR psychic hotline - there's a business idea for you LOL
