I can even begin to describe how full of truth this is. Sometimes, failure is crucial. It was only because I fell into academic probation last semester that I’ve become such a better student this semester.

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan
The pupil who is never required to do what he cannot do, never does what he can do. – John Stuart Mill
