Failure is simply the non-presence of success. But a fiasco is a disaster of mythic proportions.
Even Woodstock turned out to be a disaster. Everybody was stuck in the mud and people got sick.
Alas, I emerge from one disaster to fall into a worse.
Every decision is liberating, even if it leads to disaster. Otherwise, why do so many people walk upright and with open eyes into their misfortune?
It's not always roses, The other team's good, too. They're playing as good as anybody and everything's going their way. They're in a good spot right now. But our guys, we were two outs. ... We got a ground ball up the middle, and we got a ground ball to shortstop through that hole and a chopper that deflects off a glove. That's the way it goes sometimes. Maybe those breaks will go our way tomorrow. When you give up that many hits, though, it's not all just that one inning. That's the one you all are talking about because that's the world a closer lives in. William Nathaniel Showalter III
