Sometimes the words on a page and the lines in a book are so impacting, provoking, and exceptionally stationed, that the reader stops for a rehearsal, review, and reread.
The page becomes earmarked, the reader returns, and again and again he allows the strain of exceptional thought to become "one" with his own.
Such lines are mine:
"Sometimes teachers aren't people.
They are circumstances we face in life.
One of the greatest teachers is failure.
In those times, a wise person will say, 'How do I take this negative and make it into a positive?'
My teachers have taught me that failure can be a blessing if you embrace it for what it's worth and then let it go and move on.
Some of the greatest people in life became great after they failed."
