“Winning is a trophy, failing is an education”

Tom Burns of The Good Man Project wrote in “25 Things I Think Every Dad Should Teach His Kids” on February 20, 2013 for The Huffington Post:

“1. Winning is fun, but it teaches you nothing. Failure is the best teacher in the world. Winning is a trophy, failing is an education.”

The advice borrows from the old saying that one learns more from one’s failures. “Winning is a trophy, failing is an education” has been frequently cited.
