The Benefit of Failure:

Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the
determination to succeed in the one arena I believed I truly belonged.

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live
so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which
case, you fail by default.

– JK Rowling
