I was just reading a great quote by Thomas Edison about failure. There are several variations of this quote, but it’s just fantastic. The backstory is that a reporter asked Thomas Edison about the thousands of experiments he went through to invent the carbon filament – something along the lines of “how does it feel to have failed two thousand times to create the electric filament?”
Thomas Edison replied:
I have not failed, not once. I’ve discovered ten thousand ways that don’t work.
