When we call you up to be Man on the Street and we ask you “What quote do you live by?”, feel free to quickly skip to this section, use one of these quotes and pretend you spend your life dwelling on the words of Truman Capote.
Don’t worry about failure. You only have to be right once.
– Drew Houston
In my experience, each failure contains the seeds of your next success-if you are willing to learn from it.
If people like you, they’ll listen to you, but if they trust you, they’ll do business with you.
Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.
A hard thing is done by figuring out how to start.
If you start with nothing and end up with nothing, there’s nothing lost.
Nothing in life that’s worth anything is easy.
Build what you want to see in the world
– Jack Dorsey
It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.
The best way to guarantee loss is to quit.
