Given a choice, most people would rather have only success and no failure. However, this quote, by the writer Truman Capote, reminds us that failure is what makes success more sweet. This makes sense. Without failure, success is taken for granted. In fact, the idea of success loses much of its meaning without its direct opposite. It turns out, the two go hand in hand. So the next time you are experiencing failure, just think about how much more rewarding success will be having failed first.
