      Hi Rida,
      Yes, indeed, failure is temporary and it is not really failure
      I prefer to use the term feedback – it just shows us what areas we need to improve upon within ourselves

    Thank you for these quotes. My car was towed away this morning. I am trying to hold it together, but my failures were beginning to get the better of me. I guess I am a slow learner, and failure is a mean teacher.
