recovering from these repeat mishaps make us stronger. it has been true in my life

Very true, unfortunately not all ever have that chance to recover. I’d say the opposite is more often true. There is also a danger in using the quote (by Nietzsche) to carelessly overestimate the freedom we have over our lives, stigmatizing those who have not been given out favorable cards in life. I’m in no way trying to say this phenomenon (strength in adversities) is never true, I have actually written a thesis about a very similar subject :slight_smile:

A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.

The secret to your success is determined by your daily agenda.

Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.

“As you decide, you shall be left as you were before, and neither richer nor wiser, unless the sense of service rendered to a man in mortal distress may be counted as a kind of riches of the soul. Or, if you shall so prefer to choose, a new province of knowledge and new avenues to fame and power shall be laid open to you, here, in this room, upon the instant; and your sight shall be blasted by a prodigy to stagger the unbelief of Satan.”

The darkness down below
And I know it’s true / I say I do
And half the time I don’t

Table games […] represent a social contract between players. In the name of creating fun, everybody agrees to follow some rules, but also that they’ll care about the nebulous concept of winning, they’ll be quiet when other people are taking their turn, they won’t leave the table, they’ll lie, pay attention, think quickly, adopt a character, or establish some value in winning as a team, or coming second, or… beans. […] A board game is a glass palace of social cues.

"If the procedure prescribed herein does not cover a specific operating
requirement, initiative and common sense should suffice.”

  • Conclusion of the first paragraph of “Radiotelephone Procedure” ,
    Training Aids Branch Center (TASO), Fort Knox, Kentucky (April 1974)

It is by no means sufficient that an officer should be capable. …
He should be as well a gentleman of liberal education, refined manners,
punctilious courtesy, and the nicest sense of personal honor. …
No meritorious act of a subordinate should escape his attention,
even if the reward be only one word of approval. Conversely,
he should not be blind to a single fault in any subordinate.

  • John Paul Jones, from a letter to the naval committee of
    the North American insurrectionists, September 14, 1775

Adorable little pudgy robots soar through a blazing pink sky, stubby arms outstretched as they speed towards their destination–a yellow planet in the distance. “GIVE ME YOAR COOOBS”* bellow the aliens upon arrival. “POINTZ 4 COOOOBS.” A robot obliges, and a sonorous “cha-ching” resounds through its programming. But the robot is now a drifting derelict, its home ship long gone. It is now doomed to tumble through inky pinkness until its energy reserves burn to nothing. It begins to wonder, “Why have I done this? What is my purpose? What is this all for?” And the cosmos replies with a whisper, “It is for 1-4 players.”
