Success is pretty boring

success is boring

“I’m always interested in the mechanisms by which people fail. Failure has always fascinated me. I find it much more interesting than success. Success is pretty boring. If you’re successful at something you just feel good about yourself, and you [might] get on your high horse and start talking nonsense, imparting your wisdom whether people want it or not. But failure comes in all different forms. It teaches you things.”

-adapted from an interview with Scottish novelist Irvine WelshI
