Pearls of Wisdom


Failure is the foundation of success, and the means by which it is achieved.

~ Lao Tzu

Be not ashamed of mistakes and thus make them crimes.


Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

– Mahatma Gandhi

Many people dream of success. To me success can only achieved through repeated failure and introspection. In fact, success represents the 1% of your work that results from the 99% that is called failure.

– Soichiro Honda


In the West, our fixation on success discourages us from risk taking because it values success over learning, and it abhors failure whether we learn from it or not.

– Parker Palmer

That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith.

Steve Jobs

I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.

– Thomas Edison

I have learned throughout my life as a composer chiefly through my mistakes and pursuits of false assumptions, not my exposure to founts of wisdom and knowledge.

– Igor Stravinski

Once you embrace unpleasant news not as negative but as evidence of a need for change, you aren't defeated by it. You're learning from it.

Bill Gates

The Art of Innovation: 9 Truths

By: Guy Kawasaki

  • Don't worry, be crappy. An innovator doesn't worry about shipping an innovative product with elements of crappiness if it's truly innovative. The first permutation of a innovation is seldom perfect – Macintosh, for example, didn't have software (thanks to me), a hard disk (it wouldn't matter with no software anyway), slots, and color. If a company waits – for example, the engineers convince management to add more features – until everything is perfect, it will never ship, and the market will pass it by.
