Failure is a temporary setback, not a defeat. Failure is a commodity that can be evaded only by completing nothing, speaking nothing, and being nothing. All things are but a temporary state of being.
Everything passes. Happiness. Suffering. Everything, the good and the bad altogether, is temporary. Nothing lasts indefinitely, not even this.
Being transient does not make something matter any less. The point is not how long it lasted; the point is what had happened while it did.
