|I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
Is an art, like everything else.
I do it exceptionally well.
I do it so it feels like hell.
I do it so it feels real,
Yeah, failing feels like hell; well, your first big failure, and your second… After your third, you shrug. Failure is now an option. Not so bad, not so unthinkable. You are released into creativity.

That idea set me free. Who am I that I shouldn’t make mistakes? All human beings are limited. All human being make mistakes! Who am I that I should never get things wrong?
