Our society is so caught up in winning, we forget that most of the great men and women in history have, at one time or another, failed at something. Often repeatedly, and discouragingly. But each failure is nothing more than a brick in the wall that forms the foundation of our success. We can’t forget that.
We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.
Marie Curie (1867–1934)
French physicist and chemist
two-time Nobel Prize winner
