Cornerstone of the Day ~ Failure

Gustave Flaubert, of Madam Bovary fame, was a serious cynic. He opines, and today I completely concur, the following:
Nothing is more humiliating than to see idiots succeed in enterprises we have failed in.

Actually I am not of the opinion some of those that seem to be succeeding are idiots, well perhaps in a few cases, yet darned if I'm not beginning to wonder how some of these particular folks caught their breaks. Hardly the life I ordered and I'm trying to stay positive and bold but efforts to get back on my best path are proving so very frustrating. Peace ... or War!
