    I am not content with my failure. Why should I be? Furthermore, I don’t have the heart to let down a friend who believes in me. If success is 99% failure, I’m off to a great start.

    I am sitting here reading the medicine quotes from your website. My girlfriend loves the quotes by Benjamin Franklin like “laziness moves so slow that poverty soon overtakes you” so much that she wants to print them out and post them in our house.
