Failure is inevitable. Every scientist was told no over and over. The ones we remember, the ones who changed our lives, the Curies, the Salks, the Barnards. They’re the ones who wouldn’t take no for an answer.
Failure is inevitable, unavoidable but failure should never get the last word. You have to hold on to what you want. You have to not take no for an answer and take what’s coming to you. Never give in, never give up. Stand up. Stand up and take it.
– Meredith Grey (Season10, Ep.12-Get Up, Stand Up)
