I love reading great quotes! When I read the quote by Mary Pickford about overcoming failure, it reminded me about another quote from Thomas S. Monson. He said, "Learn from the past. Live in the present. Plan for the future". When it comes to overcoming failure, we need view it as a learning experience and move on. We need to grasp the new opportunities that come our way and make the best of it.
