Failure: Not Just Another Opportunity--Part II*
A Ministry Health "Snippet" Collection

Thomas F. Fischer, M.Div., M.S.A.

Number 78

The only lasting failure is the one we will not try to change.

When you have nothing left but God, then for the first time you become aware that God is enough.

If you think you have given enough, think again. There is always more to give and someone to give it to.
Norman Vincent Peale

It isn't that some can't see the solution, it's that they can't see the problem.
G.K. Chesterton

There isn't any formula or method. You learn to succeed by failing.

The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it. 
Arnold Glasgow

Failure is nothing else but a chance to do better.

If you keep saying that things are going to be bad, you have a chance of being a prophet.
Isaac Singer

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
Mother Theresa

Not to decide is to decide.
Harvey Cox

Dinosaurs died because they couldn't change. Don't be a dinosaur.

Failure never robs tomorrow of it's success, it only saps today of its joy.

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.
Samuel Johnson

When, in the pursuit of success, we have given everything we have, we are ready to receive what we really, really need.

It is the nature of man as he grows older to protest against changes, particularly change for the better.
John Steinbeck

The most useless day is that in which we have not laughed.
Charles Field.

I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.
St. Paul

Learning to cope is a skill for life, not a way of life. In failure, we gain the opportunity to learn to cope and, by that learning, we learn a better way of life.

Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, "I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me."
Ann Landers

On earth there are no perfect accomplishments, just a long string of failures at the feet of a few brilliant successes.

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is a progress. Working together is success.
Anonymous

You don't get to choose how you're going to die, or when. You can only decide how you're going to live. Now.
Joan Baez

The notion that there might be a better or more opportune time to try has cost many people a lifetime of regret and sorrow.

Failure is nothing else but a chance to try again...better, wiser, and more effectively.

Planning is brining the future into the present so that you can do something about it.
Alan Lakein

We are no greater than our failures and the lessons we have learned from them.
