John Ortberg- “Failure is not an event, but rather a judgement about an event.” (More Than Conquers)

When Max Planck was awarded the Nobel prize for his discovery of quantum theory, he said, “Looking back over the long and labyrinthian path which finally led to the discovery, I am vividly reminded of Goethe’s saying that men will always be making mistakes as long as they are striving after something.” (The Ragamuffin Gospel, 175-176)
