Learn from Mistakes

Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, "All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing."

Edison replied very confidently, "Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We now, that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb."

This is very well said.Taking the first step is very much important and it may result in failure.But as you said,Failures are important and learning from these failures(so that we dont repeat them) is much more important.Thus,"FAILURE ARE STEPPING STONE TO SUCCESS"
