Помилятись, але не зупинятись

Більшість, мабуть, мільйон разів бачила цю промову, але я її все одно залишу тут.

“I had failed on an epic scale. An exceptionally short-lived marriage had imploded, and I was jobless, a lone parent, and as poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless.

“Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I built my life.

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well have not lived at all, in which case you’ve failed by default. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more than any qualification I have ever earned.”
