A Failure Is No Flop


A Failure Is No Flop
For it is also just as important
To know the things
That cannot be done
As it is for those that can.

For if no one ever discovered
The things that can not be done
And separate them from their successes
Then no one would know
The things that could.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
