Deacon’s Wisdom

Failure is not, I think, defined by how often we don’t achieve the ends for which we aim. Instead, it is about how many times we don’t attempt to do what we should.

A corollary to this:

“Do. Or do not. There is no ‘try’.”

– Yoda

    But he kicked ass in the three Star Wars prequels, anyway. 🙂

Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
