Great Quotes on Failure and Success

Everyone experiences failure at some point in life, even the most successful of individuals, but not everyone copes with failure in the same manner. While some people see it as the end and quit trying, those who eventually do succeed see failure as but a new beginning and keep trying.

Consequently, possessing a positive attitude is what makes the difference between succeeding and failing, and this is the message echoed in many famous quotes that have motivated people to continue striving to succeed, even when they’ve encountered adversity and seemingly insurmountable obstacles:

“It is never too late to be what you might have become.” ~George Eliot tweet

“Failure is not the worst thing in the world. The very worst is not to try.” ~Ben Sweetland tweet

“Failure is more frequently from want of energy than want of capital.” ~Daniel Webster tweet

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t—you are right.” ~Henry Ford tweet

“The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination.” ~Tommy Lasorda tweet

“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson tweet

“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt tweet

 

“We are continually faced with great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insolvable problems.” ~Ben Franklin tweet

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ~Old Chinese Proverb tweet

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t – you are right.” ~Henry Ford tweet

Happy Life Quotes

What is happiness? The definition often changes with the individual because the emotional state called happiness is really quite personal. After all, what makes one person happy may not make another person happy at all.

On the other hand, most individuals agree that happiness is a state of mind that can run the gamut from mere contentment to sheer ecstasy. Below, however, are the opinions of some great thinkers regarding this emotional state known as happiness:

“Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.” ~Henry Ford tweet

“We are never so happy, nor so unhappy, as we suppose ourselves to be.” ~La Rochefoucauld tweet

“Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” ~Abraham Lincoln tweet

“Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it and chase it directly, the more it eludes you; but if you sit quietly and busy yourself with other things, it will come and light upon your shoulder.” ~Old Chinese Proverb tweet

“Man is the artificer of his own happiness.” ~Henry David Thoreau tweet

“The secret of happiness is this: let your interests be as wide as possible, and let your reactions to things and persons that interest you be as far as possible friendly rather than hostile.” ~Bertrand Russell tweet

“Happy the man, and happy he alone, he who can cal today his own; he who, secure within, can say, tomorrow, do thy worst, for I have lived today.” ~John Dryden tweet

“The two foes of human happiness are pain and boredom.” ~Albert Schweitzer tweet

“We have no more right to consume happiness without producing it than to consume wealth without producing it.” ~George Bernard Shaw tweet

When people encounter failure, they must believe that success is still obtainable—and then take steps to ensure it happens. Moreover, whenever they encounter unhappiness, they must not lose hope but remember, as William Cowper once said, The darkest day, lived till tomorrow, will have passed away.
