Learning Experiences (Quotation)

Edison replied, "I beg your pardon, I've never failed even once. I've had thousands of learning experiments that didn't work. I had to run through enough learning experiences to find a way that it did work." [from book "Dare to Win" ] LiveJournal Tags: General , Quotation
