You're Born an Original, Don't Die a Copy
A copy adapts to the world; original tries to make the world adapt. Success is not in achieving what you aim at, but aiming at what you ought to achieve.
One of the riskiest things you can do in life is to take too many precautions and never have any failures or mistakes. We are told never to cross a bridge till we come to it, but the world is owned by those who 'crossed their bridges' in their imaginations far ahead of others.
Failure may look like a fact, but it is just an opinion. You don't drown by falling in water, you drown by staying there.
