  1. Gina says:

    Agreed. i think the precursor to that quote, at least for me, is don't be afraid to try. 🙂 Happy Monday!

    • Geek Girl says:

      I understand. That was me not that many years ago. Nothing ventured, nothing gained is the moto now. 🙂

  2. findingourwaynow says:

    Fear can be such a downer, can't it? I agree with both of you, if we never try we never know what's really possible. 🙂

    • Geek Girl says:

      The other thing I have learned is that you can try something new with a friend at your side. Less scary that way. 🙂

  3. Bindhurani says:

    Thanks for the wonderful quote. I was thinking about doing a blog give away. A little scared of not being successful…After reading this one, sure, I am going to try my second blog give away.

  4. A.K.Andrew says:

    Great quote for the start of the week – it's hard to remember that you can keep on keeping on. it doesn't have to be the same exact project either to have the same results. More than one way to skin a cat, is one I like to keep in mind when things haven't quote worked out as I expected them to. Thanks Cherryl.

    • Geek Girl says:

      I love that – more than one way to skin a cat. If something doesn’t work the way you thought it would the first time, try it again and change it up a bit. Kinda sounds like this blog, doesn’t it? LOL

  5. findingourwaynow says:

    So very true. :-)))

  6. Elizabeth Scott says:

    What a fitting quote to start the week. It is a reminder that we are not the only ones who stumble. It takes a strong person to get back up and keep moving. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Everyone makes mistakes. We just have to learn and rise above them 🙂

  7. Geek Girl says:

    You go for it! I am sure it will be a success. 🙂

  8. JeriWB says:

    As one who suffers from perfectionism and an overly analytical nature, I welcome these quotes so much.

    • Geek Girl says:

      So glad you like them. 🙂

  9. Good quote that is so true Cheryl!

    Everybody fails, even Caesar did, and he even managed to get murdered:-)

    The important thing is that we don't remain on the side of the road but get back on track again…

    • Geek Girl says:

      Absolutely! 🙂

  10. Susan Oakes says:

    Like this quote and to me it isn't just keeping on trying it is also our attitude that makes a big difference as to whether we give up or give it another shot.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Attitude is half the battle, isn't it? 🙂

  11. Bethany Lee says:

    That's a good one, since I've failed a lot in life. If I gave up after failing, I would never have gone to college. True story.

    • Geek Girl says:

      I have also failed a lot. But I just keep getting back up and trying again. 🙂

  12. I like to think that when something doesn't go right, it isn't a failure, it's just another learning experience.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Yes! A learning experience. No other way to look at it.

  13. This reminds me of one I have been seeing lately "It doesn't matter how many times you fall. What matters is getting back up again."

    • Geek Girl says:

      Getting back up and trying again… that's the important thing. 🙂
