251. "Like the eye which sees everything in front of it and never sees itself, faith is occupied with the Object upon which it rests and pays no attention to itself at all. While we are looking at God, we do not see ourselves - blessed riddance. The man who has struggled to purify himself and has had nothing but repeated failures will experience real relief when he stops tinkering with his soul and looks away to the perfect One."
Author: A.W. Tozer
252. "The man who has struggled to purify himself and has had nothing but repeated failures will experience real relief when he stops tinkering with his soul and looks away to the perfect One. While he looks at Christ the very things he has so long been trying to do will be getting done within him. It will be God working in him to will and to do."
Author: A.W. Tozer
253. "We climb to heaven most often on the ruins of our cherished plans, finding our failures were successes."
Author: Amos Bronson Alcott
254. "You find that all men are successes or failures. Success is the stamp of truth. I will say all men who fail to place their feet on the dome of facts do so by not sieving all truth and throwing the faulty to one side."
Author: Andrew Taylor Still
255. "If I have any justification for having lived it's simply, I'm nothing but faults, failures and so on, but I have tried to make a good pair of shoes. There's some value in that."
Author: Arthur Miller
256. "Where I grew up, death is a constant visitor. A virus, bacteria, a parasite; drought and famine; soldiers, and torturers; could bring it to anyone, any time. Death comes riding on raindrops that turned to floods. It catches the imagination of men in positions of authority who order their subordinates to hunt, torture, and kill people they imagine to be enemies. Death lures many others to take their own lives in order to escape a dismal reality. For many women, because of the perception of lost honor, death comes at the hands of a father, brother, or husband. Death comes to young women giving birth to new life, leaving the newborn orphaned in the hands of strangers. For those who live in anarchy and civil war, as in the country of my birth, Somalia, death is everywhere."
Author: Ayaan Hirsi Ali
257. "Start Where You StandStart where you stand and never mind the past,The past won't help you in beginning new,If you have left it all behind at lastWhy, that's enough, you're done with it, you're through;This is another chapter in the book,This is another race that you have planned,Don't give the vanished days a backward look,Start where you stand.The world won't care about your old defeatsIf you can start anew and win success;The future is your time, and time is fleetAnd there is much of work and strain and stress;Forget the buried woes and dead despairs,Here is a brand-new trial right at hand,The future is for him who does and dares,Start where you stand.Old failures will not halt, old triumphs aid,Today's the thing, tomorrow soon will be;Get in the fight and face it unafraid,And leave the past to ancient history,What has been, has been; yesterday is deadAnd by it you are neither blessed nor banned;Take courage, man, be brave and drive ahead,Start where you stand."
Author: Berton Braley
258. "Henri Nouwen wrote of the spiritual work of gratitude: To be grateful for the good things that happen in our lives is easy, but to be grateful for all of our lives—the good as well as the bad, the moments of joy as well as the moments of sorrow, the successes as well as the failures, the rewards as well as the rejections—that requires hard spiritual work. Still, we are only grateful people when we can say thank you to all that has brought us to the present moment. As long as we keep dividing our lives between events and people we would like to remember and those we would rather forget, we cannot claim the fullness of our beings as a gift of God to be grateful for. Let's not be afraid to look at everything that has brought us to where we are now and trust that we will soon see in it the guiding hand of a loving God.2"
Author: Brennan Manning
259. "He wasn't, I realized when I read those scenes concerning Blair and myself, close to any of us-- except of course to Blair, and really not even to her. He was simply someone who floated through our lives and didn't seem to care how flatly he perceived everyone or that he'd shared our secret failures with the world, showcasing the youthful indifference, the gleaming nihilism, glamorizing the horror of it all. But there was no point in being angry with him."
Author: Bret Easton Ellis
260. "An inventor fails 999 times, and if he succeeds once, he's in. He treats his failures simply as practice shots."
Author: Charles Kettering
261. "Don't bury personal obsessions. Capitalize on them. ``The connection between personal obsession and the work you do is the most important thing.''-- Be yourself. ``Singularity is what you need.''-- Avoid self-censorship: ``We are very self-critical in a way that can be very destructive. In our culture there are voices in our head which have taught us to say, `Oh, I wouldn't do that if I were you.' Don't ever think about anybody peering over your shoulder.''-- Don't be afraid to show off, even if you think, ``I'm very close to making a complete fool of myself.''-- Don't be afraid to entertain. ``I want to entertain. I don't want to lose people. I feel responsible as I write to give people the best time I can.''-- ``Love your failures'' instead of beating yourself up over them.-- ``Learn to love the process'' of writing.-- Just do it. Barker likes something director Stanley Kubrick said: ``If you want to make a film, pick up a camera."
Author: Clive Barker
262. "I took the sleeper out of Glasgow, and as the smelly old train bumped out of Central Station and across the Jamaica Street Bridge, I stared out at the orange halogen streetlamps reflected in the black water of the river Clyde. I gazed at the crumbling Victorian buildings that would soon be sandblasted and renovated into yuppie hutches. I watched the revelers and rascals traverse the shiny wet streets. I thought of the thrill and danger of my youth and the fear and frustration of my adult life thus far. I thought of the failure of my marriage and my failures as a man. I saw all this through my reflection in the nighttime window. Down the tracks I went, hardly aware that I was going further south with every passing second."
Author: Craig Ferguson
263. "It isn't about the welfare check. It never was.It isn't about sexual permissiveness, or personal morality, or failures in parenting, or lack of family planning. All of these are inherent in the disaster, but the purposefulness with which babies make babies in places like West Baltimore goes far beyond accident and chance, circumstance and misunderstanding. It's about more than the sexual drives of adolescents, too, though that might be hard to believe in a country where sex alone is enough of an argument to make anyone do just about anything.In Baltimore, a city with the highest teen pregnancy rates in the nation, the epidemic is, at root, about human expectation, or more precisely, the absence of expectation."
Author: David Simon
264. "You mark and celebrate errors, transforming failures into successes."
Author: Dejan Stojanovic
265. "If we hear, in our inner ear, a voice saying we are failures, we are losers, we will never amount to anything, this is the voice of Satan trying to convince the bride that the groom does not love her. This is not the voice of God. God woos us with kindness. He changes out of character with the passion of his love."
Author: Donald Miller
266. "The history of using mice to stand in for humans in medical experiments is replete with failures."
Author: Gary Wolf
267. "It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways."
Author: Gautama Buddha
268. "Most of our failures in understanding one another have less to do with what is heard than with what is intended and what is inferred."
Author: George Armitage Miller
269. "It takes 10 million failures to find the right stuff."
Author: George Lindsey
270. "Any design, whether it's for a ship or an airplane, must be done in anticipation of potential failures."
Author: Henry Petroski
271. "Global poverty is the product of reversible policy failures overseen by politicians, past and present. The poorest of the poor don't vote in American or European elections. They don't make donations to political parties or hire lobbyists in D.C., London or Canberra."
Author: Hugh Evans
272. "I know how much you grieve over those who are under your care: those you try to help and fail, those you cannot help. Have faith in God and remember that He will is His own way and in His own time complete what we so poorly attempt. Often we do not achieve for others the good that we intend but achieve something, something that goes on from our effort. Good is an overflow. Where we generously and sincerely intend it, we are engaged in a work of creation which may be mysterious even to ourselves - and because it is mysterious we may be afraid of it. But this should not make us draw back. God can always show us, if we will, a higher and a better war; and we can only learn to love by loving. Remember that all our failures are ultimately failures in love. Imperfect love must not be condemned and rejected but made perfect. The way is always forward, never back."
Author: Iris Murdoch
273. "Fuckin failures in a country of failures. Its nae good blamin it oan the English fir colonising us. Ah don't hate the English. They're just wankers. We are colonised by wankers. We can't even pick a decent, vibrant healthy society to be colonised by. No..we are ruled by effete arseholes. What does that make us? The lowest of the low, the scum of the earth. The most wretched servile, miserable, pathetic trash that was ever shat intae creation. Ah don't hate the English. They just git oan wis the shite thev got. Ah hate the Scots."
Author: Irvine Welsh
274. "As good surgical doctor works on a patient in the theater with varied kinds of surgical instruments, so a true leader also needs a clean bag of leadership characters that vary from task to task. One-way leaders are obvious failures!"
Author: Israelmore Ayivor
275. "We are all failures at least, all the best of us are."
Author: J. M. Barrie
276. "The Soviet Union has indeed been our greatest menace, not so much because of what it has done, but because of the excuses it has provided us for our failures."
Author: J. William Fulbright
277. "Dreams are the result of a million choices, a billion failures, and a few successes."
Author: Jared Leto
278. "In retrospect there were failures enough to go around. There were failures before the storm and failures after the storm."
Author: Jeff Sessions
279. "All of us are failures; we all die.Nobody wants to be a nobody. All our acts are partly devised to fill or to mask the emptiness we feel at the core.We all like to be loved or hated; it is a sign that we shall be remembered, that we did not 'not exist'. For this reason, many unable to create love have created hate. That too is remembered."
Author: John Fowles
280. "... for home is a magnet that lures back even its most abstracted children."
Author: Kate Morton
281. "...Grandpa's mind had left us, gone wild and wary. When I walked with him I could feel how strange it was. His thoughts swam between us, hidden under rocks, disappearing in weeds, and I was fishing for them, dangling my own words like baits and lures."
Author: Louise Erdrich
282. "As any student of literature knows, the books that last are often not the books that are most popular when they are written. Both 'Moby Dick' and 'The Great Gatsby' were complete failures, critically and commercially, when they first appeared."
Author: Michael Cunningham
283. "I think as humans, no one remembers their successes, everyone just remembers their failures."
Author: Mindy Kaling

Author: Minna Thomas Antrim
285. "All the ills of mankind, all the tragic misfortunes that fill the history books, all the political blunders, all the failures of the great leaders have arisen merely from a lack of skill at dancing."
Author: Moliere
286. "I have had many successes and many failures in my life. My successes have always been for different reasons, but my failures have always been for the same reason: I said yes when I meant no."
Author: Moss Hart
287. "Failures are the most valuable assets that one can earn. If u dont have any, get some and make yourself stronger!"
Author: Nelson Jack
288. "I can forgive a man's past faults, his present shortcomings, and his future failures if every minute of every day he loves me like it's his religion."
Author: Nicole Williams
289. "I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person."
Author: Og Mandino
290. "My dear boy, the people who only love once in their lives are really the shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of the intellect—simply a confession of failures."
Author: Oscar Wilde
291. "Our lives,our brokenness,our flaws and failures are precisely what God designed to reflect a perfect love."
Author: Peter Adejimi
292. "The only way God can strengthen his presence in our will is to weaken his presence in our feelings. Otherwise we would become spiritual cripples, unable to walk without emotional crutches. This is why he gives us dryness, sufferings, and failures."
Author: Peter Kreeft
293. "I've failed you," he said."You just stopped the boy.""That's not what I meant.""I know what you meant, Oliver. You count too many things as failures when they are merely setbacks." She beckoned him up, and he stood, still intimately close to her. She didn't seem bothered. "I feel safer with my old enemy beside me."
Author: Rachel Caine
294. "If you don't want people to look at you, Park had thought at the time, don't wear fishing lures in your hair. Her jewelry box must look like a junk drawer."
Author: Rainbow Rowell
295. "Ireland and its people have much to be proud of. Yet every land and its people have moments of shame. Dealing with the failures of our past, as a country, as a Church, or as an individual is never easy. Our struggle to heal the wounds of decades of violence, injury and painful memory in Northern Ireland are more than ample evidence of this."
Author: Sean Brady
296. "When counting on learning from innovation, there are great successes but also failures. The Wright Brothers invented the aircraft and started an amazing process of innovation, where we now have planes that carry 500 passengers. Along the way there were some silly looking vehicles that crashed early on."
Author: Sheldon Whitehouse
297. "Our gods, if we choose to believe in them, must be forced to live up to ethics that far surpass our own human standards. If they fall short of the ethical conditions we place upon ourselves, what use are they to us - except to rationalize our own failures?"
Author: Stifyn Emrys
298. "Et dans mon kiosque d'aiguilles qui procure une illusion de chaleur, je regarde le puits noir du lac. La masse de glace m'apparait comme un creuset cauchemardesque. Je perçois la force à l'oeuvre sous ce couvercle. Dans le caveau, un univers grouille de bêtes qui broient, dévorent et sectionnent. Dans les profondeurs, des éponges balancent lentement leurs branches. Des coquillages enroulent leurs spires, battant la mesure du temps et créent des bijoux de nacre en forme de constellation. Des silures monstrueux rôdent dans les vasières. Des poissons carnassiers migrent vers la surface pour le festin nocturne et les holocaustes de crustacés. Des bancs d'ombles tracent leurs chorégraphies benthiques. Des bactéries barattent les scories, les digèrent, purifient l'eau. Ce morne malaxage s'opère en silence, sous le miroir où les étoiles n'ont même pas la force de se refléter."
Author: Sylvain Tesson
299. "The demons of despair will always try to hold you back from enjoying your life. Either they will try to haunt you with your failures of your past or torment you with your worries of the future. Refuse to entertain them by rising above and staying in the present. They can't have any power over you...if you don't allow them to!"
Author: Timothy Pina
300. "The value of your life is not measured in your success but your failures, your ability to fight, to make a better day for yourself is what you will remember in life's last challenge."
Author: Westley Tusa

Today's Quote

But how?" my students ask. "How do you actually do it?" You sit down, I say. You try to sit down at approximately the same time every day. This is how you train your unconscious to kick in for you creatively. So you sit down at, say, nine every morning, or ten every night. You put a piece of paper in the typewriter, or you turn on the computer and bring up the right file, and then you stare at it for an hour or so. You begin rocking, just a little at first, and then like a huge autistic child. You look at the ceiling, and over at the clock, yawn, and stare at the paper again. Then, with your fingers poised on the keyboard, you squint at an image that is forming in your mind -- a scene, a locale, a character, whatever -- and you try to quiet your mind so you can hear what that landscape or character has to say above the other voices in your mind."
