so you think that you're a failure, do you?
well, you probably are.
what's wrong with that?
in the first place, if you've any sense at all you must have learned by now that we pay just as dearly for our triumphs as we do for our defeats.
go ahead and fail. but fail with wit, fail with grace, fail with style. a mediocre failure is as insufferable as a mediocre success.
