    Here a little child I stand,
    Heaving up my either hand;

    By my soft nervelets were embraced;

    I would be a winner because I was a loser! That’s right. I dream of failure every night of my life, and that’s my secret. To make it in this rat race you have to dream of failing every day. I mean, that is reality.
