Logical Quote

Note:I'm going to Port Dickson for the weekend.

Heywood Broun Quote

"The tragedy of life is not that man loses, but that he almost wins"-Heywood Broun

When I first saw this quote, it reminds me of certain events of my past. It relates to my life. I really believe in this quote as I felt extremely bad when I lost in a competition few years ago due to unfair judge panels.

Heywood Campbell Broun (December 7, 1888 - December 18, 1939) was an American journalist. He worked as a sportswriter, newspaper columnist, and editor in New York City. He founded the American Newspaper Guild, now known as The Newspaper Guild. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he is best remembered for his writing on social issues and his championing of the underdog. He believed that journalists could help right wrongs, especially social ills.

It reminds me, I nearly win in a competition, but at the last I made a simple mistake, and then lost to the component.

We do accept losses, and we do improve ourselves to be better...
