Words To Live By

“You only fail if you give up. The second you decide ‘oh I’m not gonna do that, I’m just gonna give up’, that’s you. You’re the one making that choice. You’re the one choosing to fail. You have to make the decision to fail. Whereas if you don’t ever make that decision. You say no I’m gonna keep going until it freaking happens, well then you don’t fail, you’re just in the process of making it happen… my time in this life is limited, but the things I can do in this time are not” – Jeb Corliss: BASE-jumper, Wingsuit Pilot
