We learn nothing from those who say: ‘Do as I do.’ Our only teachers are those who tell us to ‘do with me’, and are able to emit signs to be developed in heterogeneity rather than to propose gestures for us to reproduce. In other words, there is no ideo-motivity, only sensory-motivity.
Gilles Deleuze, Difference and Repetition, page 23
“Successful people suffer through catastrophes and bankruptcies. The successful person fails many times and bounces back. The failure fails only once, letting that one failure become a judgement of his worth, and thus his label.”
“For believe me: the secret for harvesting from existence the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment is—to live dangerously!”
—Nietzsche, The Gay Science (section 283)
