"I've been rereading your story. I think it's about me in a way that might not be flattering, but that's okay. We dream and dream of being seen as we really are and then finally someone looks at us and sees us truly and we fail to measure up. Anyway: story received, story included. You looked at me long enough to see something mysterioso under all the gruff and bluster. Thanks. Sometimes you get so close to someone you end up on the other side of them."
-Richard Siken

"Would you like me to give you a formula for success?  
It's quite simple, really.  Double your rate of failure. 
You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it 
isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can 
learn from it.  So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you 
can. Because remember that's where you will find success." 
--Thomas J. Watson
