Let me share someone's life history with you:
This was a man who failed in business at the age of 21;
Was defeated in a legislative race at age 22;
Failed again in business at age 24;
Overcame the death of his sweetheart at age 26;
Had a nervous breakdown at age 27;
Lost a congressional race at age 34;
Lost a senatorial race at age 45;
Failed in an effort to become vice-president at age 47;
Lost a senatorial race at age 49;
And he was elected president of the United States at age 52.
This man was ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
Every success story is also a story of great failure.
