We just discovered there’s an entire Wikiquotes page on FAILURE, something we write about a lot because it’s such an essential part of improvising, discovering, living… Our favorite quote still and always: Samuel Beckett (from Worstword Ho):

Try again. Fail again. FAIL BETTER.

Some of the most liberating words we’ve ever read.

(This poster we saw over at Swiss-Miss reminded us.)
