Learning from Failure

At the cost of one failure, the wise learn the lesson for the whole of life. Bowl of Saki, August 7, by Hazrat Inayat Khan Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan: It happens very often that we find that a person who has been successful in life goes on being successful, and that one who has once failed goes on failing.
