    • Hi,

      You’re welcome. 🙂 This has been a hard area for me. Abuse, I think, makes overcoming this area of life very challenging. As though we didn’t have enough areas of life to overcome! I really think that I am making some headway in this area and quotes like this are good reminders that failing is normal and an essential part of life, learning, and healing.

      Good and healing thoughts to you.

  1. I especially liked the third Henry Ford quote … it seems he was not much of a person who must have failed really good to have succeeded so well!

    Thanks,

    • Hi Anns,

      I think that people who created something, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Henry Ford, etc, were intimately aware of how much failure is a part of success. Over the years I’ve found many quotes like this from inventors.

      We are all inventors and creators of our own life.

      Good and healing thoughts to you.
