You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. Johnny Cash

We are taught to consume. And that's what we do. But if we realized that there really is no reason to consume, that it's just a mind set, that it's just an addiction, then we wouldn't be out there stepping on people's hands climbing the corporate ladder of success. River Phoenix
It is impossible to get anything made or accomplished without stepping on some toes; enemies are inevitable when one is a doer. Norma Shearer
The past is a stepping stone, not a millstone. Robert Plant
