    It Takes As Much Courage..

    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    Why not?

    It takes as much courage to try and fail as it does to try and succeed.

    I prefer the second version.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: It Takes As Much Courage..

    Where is this from and who wrote it? As to why it is written like that, you'd have to ask the author.
