11 Failure Quotes from Literature

There is one sure thing about the fall of gods: they do not fall a little; they crash and shatter or sink deeply into green muck. It is a tedious job to build them up again; they never quite shine. ~ East of Eden by John Steinbeck For, so inconsistent is human nature, especially in the ideal, that not to undertake a thing at all seems better than to undertake and come short. ~ Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe If success is rare and slow, everybody knows how quick and easy ruin is. ~ Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray It is so much easier to forgive a failure than a success. ~ A Little Journey in the World by Charles Dudley Warner "You will profit by the failure, and will avoid it another time. I have done a similar thing myself, in construction, often.

She would joyfully die with him, or, better than that, die for him. She knows he has failings, but she thinks they have grown up through his being like one cast away, for the want of something to trust in, and care for, and think well of." ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens "There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences." ~ Mansfield Park by Jane Austen "There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere." ~ Mansfield Park by Jane Austen When women are the advisers, the lords of creation don't take the advice till they have persuaded themselves that it is just what they intended to do. Then they act upon it, and, if it succeeds, they give the weaker vessel half the credit of it. If it fails, they generously give her the whole. ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
