Try Again. Fail Again.
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.
