Whether you've lost your job, your business is tanking, or your boyfriend just dumped you, these days it's easy to fall in a slump and feel like a failure. Remember failure is an event, never a person. It is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

"There is no failure except in no longer trying." ~Elbert Hubbard
"One must be a god to be able to tell successes from failures without making a mistake." ~Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

"You always pass failure on your way to success." ~Mickey Rooney
