I pasted in the text because I consider it presents a very clear
counter-meme (does this prhase already exist?) against the idea that 'I you
don't succeed, you have not tried hard enough'. All the talking of working

I did not mean that anybody on this list is a dumb insect trying to fly
through a glass window and humbly apalogize if you felt I mistook you for one.
