Why are failures important? We learn from our blunders. Here’s another perspective on this idea.
“The capacity to blunder slightly is the real marvel of DNA. Without this special attribute, we would still be anaerobic bacteria and there would be no music.” – Lewis Thomas, author of Lives of a Cell

Great quote. That’s a very nice view of it. =).
Becky McCray says
Thanks, Derrick. I have a whole series on failure, because I see it as essential to success.

Becky McCray says
The music represents actual music. If all that existed was bacteria, who would have created music? If change had not occurred, we would not have any of the amazing plants, animals, or even people that we see around us.
So think of your own failures as chances to let something wonderful, but unexpected, come about.
