failure and opportunity....

Scar Tree by C H Paquette

From the Tao Te Ching...

Failure is an opportunity.
If you blame someone else,
there is no end to the blame.

Therefore the Master
fulfills his own obligations
and corrects his own mistakes.
He does what he needs to do
and demands nothing of others.

From Confucius...

In the archer there is a resemblance to the mature person.
When he misses the mark, he turns and seeks the reason
for his failure in himself.
