“Our biggest detriment as a species is not failure, but our belief that failing means that we’ve lost the rights to start again. We haven’t - you fail, you get back up. You fail again. You get back up again. Whatever. It doesn’t matter - you’ll get there eventually, and as long as you do, it doesn’t matter how many times you fall down on the way.”
Something that my arête teacher said to me in June and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about since.
