SUCCESS/FAILURERELATED INDEX TOPICS: Mistakes, Trials & Triumphs, Diligence in Business, Discouragement,Redeem the Time.
1. I do not think all failure's undeserved,And all success is merely someone's luck;Some men are down because they were unnerved,And some are up because they kept their pluck.Some men are down because they chose to shirk;Some men are high because they did their work.I do not think that all the poor are good,That riches are the uniform of shame;The beggar might have conquered if he would,And that he begs, the World is not to blame.Misfortune is not all that comes to mar;Most men, themselves, have shaped the things they are.--Edgar Guest2.
