    Here's a cascading quote pair:

    "If first you do not succeed, try, try again" - <unknown "to me">

    When Thomas Edison set out to invent the incandescent light bulb, his every attempt failed, he tried adapting endless array of tube/vessels, gases/mixtures and filaments of nearly every known element/alloy fashioning them into countless spacial orientations/thickness, then after thousands of incompatible bulbs he finally created it his most memorable invention. When asked about the frustrations of what others saw as his innumerable mistakes and blunders, he replied:

    "I have not failed a thousand times. I have successfully discovered 1,000 ways to NOT make a light bulb!" - Thomas A. Edison

    In days gone by, we had Bob Hope, Johnny Cash, Adam Faith and Steve Jobs.

    Today, we have no hope, no cash, no faith and no jobs.
