    "Nothing is Impossible" which we all have heard, is it right?

    If everything is possible then why people fail or if something is impossible then why people say "nothing is impossible"?

    This saying is incorrect. Take for instance stopping gravity period. This, of course would be totally impossible.

    Or stop Americans from eating fast food, again impossible.

    It is one of those saying that sounds nice on the surface, uplifting, positive, etc. But truthfully we all know that there are things in life that are impossible.  As JThomp says, gravity is one example among millions.  I am a woman, I will never be anyone's father. I cannot grow wings and fly, and so on....so no, that saying is not correct.

    I agree. There are some things that are truly impossible (defying gravity, traveling back in time, etc.). However, what I think people mean when they say 'Nothing is impossible' is that we haven't reached the limits of what is possible. For most things, it's not that they're impossible but simply that no one has achieved them yet.

    If you're trying to accomplish something that no one has done before, then experiencing some failure along the way is likely. Depending on what it is, it might truly be impossible. On the other hand, it might be that the failure is part of the trial and error process of figuring out how to make something a success.

    Impossible is a word given to things that we believe to be definitive. Take gravity, man has created anti-gravity chambers; therefore stopping gravity from working is not impossible. With genetic engineering even women could be a father. A collapse of the process food industry would or an apocalypse would put an end to fast food.

    It used to be impossible to fly, sail around the ‘flat’ world, or even to travel to the moon. 

    Nothing is impossible; it may be highly improbable, but not impossible.

    Impossible is something that goes against the laws of physics and mathematics that humans have created to explain or prove certain things.

    Impossible is the humble bumble bee. According to scientists, the size of a bumble bees wings in relation to its body and weight means it is physically impossible for it to fly, yet it does.
