Failure vs. Fiasco

Posted by Melanie Phung on Monday, June 25, 2007 at 9:21 pm

A while back I read this in a newsletter (don’t recall which one) and I clipped it. I think it’s a quote from the movie Elizabethtown:

As somebody once said…there’s a difference between a failure…and a fiasco. A failure is simply the non-presence of success. Any fool can accomplish failure.

But a fiascoā€¦A fiasco is a disaster of mythic proportions. A fiasco is a folktale told to others… that makes other people feel more alive… because it didn’t happen to them.

Apropos nothing…
