"The Person Who Doesn't Make Mistakes Is Unlikely To Make Anything"Benjamin Franklin said "I haven't failed, I've have had 10,000 ideas that didn't work."Thomas Edison said "Of the 200 light bulbs that didn't work, every failure told me something I was able to incorporate into the next attempt."Theatre Director Joan Littlewood said, "If we don't get lost, we we'll never find a new route."All of them understood that failures and false starts are a precondition of success.Failure was a major contributor to its success.
There is nothing that is a more certain sign of insanity than to do the same thing over and over and expect the results to be different.*
