Is failure the key to success?

Is failure the key to success?

The keys to success are...

1. Being willing to risk failure.
2. Trying again in spite of failure.

So failure isn't itself a key to success, but it is generally found along the road to success.

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
- Robert F. Kennedy

Success is not final, failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts.
- Winston Churchill

Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
- Winston Churchill

In order to succeed, your desire for success should
be greater than your fear of failure.
- Bill Cosby

A little more persistence,
a little more effort, and
what seemed hopeless failure
may turn to glorious success.
- Elbert Hubbard
