The only time you truly fail is when you give up!
Reminds me of one which says the master has failed more times than a loser ever will.... Or something along those lines
I need time locks on bottle caps to stop me drinking my beers prematurely.
"There's no swimming in the bottle, it's just someplace we all drown."
- The Gin Blossoms
"I feel sorry for people who don't drink because when they get up in the morning, that's as good as they're gonna feel all day" - Francis Albert Sinatra
Or this one from Obi Wan, still holds true in some instances; Who's the bigger fool? The fool or the fool who follows him?
