The Great Wave, brilliantly embodying the Japanese idiom ‘Fall Seven Times, Stand Up Eight’, with elegant simplicity conveys the importance of never giving up.
We've all been in situations where we could use a little helping hand, some support.
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is just to keep going. That's when we find out what we're made of, when we fail, when we stumble, when we fall. It's the getting up and going again that's the making of us.
As the saying goes, if you don't fail, you're not even trying.
"Thomas Edison suffered 1000 failures, 1000 failed inventions, but no one remembers any of those because the 1001st was the light bulb." - Denzel Washington.
