      Love them all. Success is looking at yourself in the mirror, liking what you see, and knowing you've given your all to those projects you chose to undertake.

      Thank you so much for sharing these "success" quotes. I have a 13-yr-old son and I try to encourage him by reminding him that successful people have been rejected and failed many times, but they've never given up. I especially liked the Michael Jordan's quote because it sums up what I've been telling my son all along. Thank you, again, for this wonderful hub. God bless!:-)

      Caroline, there are so many quotes that say something along the lines of there is no success without failure which proves your point. This has been my point too even before reading such quotes.

      My failures have taught me so much in life and I am thankful to God for them. I am sure your son will soon figure this phenomenon out. Now, I believe he is too young but soon he'll feel the same way(IMO).
