Our favourite quotes on failure
Failing is the business start ups biggest fear. How ever it is impossible to fail at anything until you actually give up!
The most successful entrepreneurs are usually the ones who have kept going when the thought of giving up had crossed their mind.
However sometimes giving up can be a good thing. There is clearly no point in persevering with an idea that you have later found is riddled with floors. Sometimes making an intelligent decision to close the doors on one venture allows you to open new doors, start new ventures with a fresh mind and with more experience under your belt. Most of the time you learn more from failures than successes. The most successful entrepreneurs have failed time and time again before they finally become successful and it's the failures they have gained their experience and knowledge from.
