Running water never grows stale. Keep flowing!

Try Again. Fail Again.

with one comment

Samuel Barclay Beckett (April 13, 1906 – December 22, 1989), an Irish playwright, was awarded with Nobel Prize in literature in 1969.

Read some of his lugubrious, morbid, withering, clichéd yet humorous quotes.

• Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

• “Nothing is funnier than unhappiness. I grant you that. Yes, yes, it’s the most comical thing in the world.”

• “Nothing happens twice.”

• “Go on failing. Go on. Only next time, try to fail better.”

• “Habit is a great deadener.”

• “Nothing happens. Nobody comes. Nobody goes. It’s awful!”

• “Nothing matters, but the writing. There has been nothing else worthwhile…a stain upon the silence.”

• “We lose our hairs, our teeth! Our bloom, our ideals.”

• “Words are all we have.”

• “We are born mad. Some remain so.”

London and Dublin are celebrating his centenary with festivals kicking off this Sunday: between March 19th to May 6th.
