The only real failure is the failure to try.

And the measurement of success is how we cope with disappointment, as we always must.

Can we be blamed for feeling that we are too old to change? Too scared of disappointment to start it all again?

We get up in the morning. We do our best. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing.

All we know about the future is that it will be different.

But perhaps what we fear is that it will be the same.

So we must celebrate the changes.

It will be alright in the end. If it’s not alright — then it’s not the end.
