No one that ever lived has ever had enough power, prestige or knowledge to overcome the basic condition of all life–you win some and you lose some.

~Ken Keyes


No matter how prepared you are, how talented you are, or how wealthy or influential you are, you will fail from time to time.  Failure cannot be endlessly avoided, nor should you see loss as fatal or indicative of a flaw in character or ability.  Rather, losses are inherent in the human condition and can only be mitigated by preparation and a positive attitude, and should be seen as the teacher of lessons that they are designed to be.
