Thursday Thinking and Inking - Failure

All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, April 8, 2010

Canadian-American actress and Academy Award winner (1929) Mary Pickford was born on April 8, 1893.

Mary Pickford appeared in Coquette, Little Lord Fauntleroy, Pollyanna, A Poor Little Rich Girl, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, Stella Maris, Tess of the Storm Country and The Taming of the Shrew.

Mary Pickford and her husband, actor Douglas Fairbanks, formed United Artists Pictures with actor Charlie Chaplin and film director D. W. Griffith.

Here’s an inspiring quotation on failure from Mary Pickford for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.

You may have a fresh start
any moment you choose,
for this thing that we call "failure"
 is not the falling down,
but the staying down.
Mary Pickford
Canadian-American Actress
(1893 – 1979)
