Quote of the day

"Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing." --Denis Waitley


  1. Wow. Buffy, you have a knack for picking just the right quote for me. Thanks again for a good smack in the head so I can stop wallowing in self-pity and get back to work!

  2. Recently, I saw a beauty pageant contestant questioned on what her biggest regret was. When she didn't have one that she deemed "big," she was berated. I don't understand the criticism of this response because we learn from mistakes and there's not a lot of power in regretting things. We learn from mistakes and this quote powerfully reminds us of that. Thanks, Buffy!
