Nicole Yeary's insight:

"If you don't have failures in life, you probably aren't trying enough things. Accomplishments are proportional to attempts.

Nicole Yeary's insight:

I love this -- and so appropriate when relating to failure. A great read. 
He cites:

NEVER GIVE UP
no matter what is going on
Never give up

Too much energy in your country

instead of the heart
Develop the heart
Be compassionate
Not just to your friends
but to everyone
Be compassionate
Work for peace
in your heart and in the world
Work for peace
and I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up
