Quote of the day

“Success is the ability to move from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

Often attributed to Winston Churchill. What I hate most about British and offline culture is their aversion to failure. My mother used to say that the person who naver made a mistake never made anything, and she was right. The most striking difference between the UK and the US is that honest failure carries very little stigma over there, whereas here it’s an occasion for shame or embarrassment or worse. If you aren’t failing sometimes, then you aren’t trying hard enough. The key thing is to learn from the experience. [/rant]
