As I remembered, I took comfort in some of the "thoughts for the day" about how one must go on :
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
- James Joyce
He who spends time regretting the past,
loses the present and risks the future.
A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure
until he begins to blame somebody else.
- John Burroughs
If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right,
you'll probably never do much of anything.
- Win Borden
The greatest mistake you can make in life
is to be continually fearing you will make one.
- Elbert Hubbard
