  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Quotes 232. Today we have another one by Thomas

  • Edison and we've covered several good ones by him before in the past. So let's

  • take a look today's quote. " Many of life's failures are people who did not realize

  • how close they were to success when they gave up. " So when they quit. All right. Let's

  • look at the note here. Thomas Edison has a number of quotes that has to do with

  • the importance of hard work and persistence. Yeah. Some of the ones that I

  • covered by him are exactly on that and never giving up until you reach your

  • goal, discovery, answer, etc. Whatever it is that you're trying to reach here. He is

  • doing the same but in this case he's letting you know , you may have been very

  • close just before you were about to attain it. So you know with himself doing

  • all of these tests, maybe he thought about giving up many many times as he

  • was doing it. You know , that always runs through people's minds when they're

  • trying to reach a goal and it's taking much longer than they want and you know,

  • but he knows from from experience, that he stuck with it in there and he

  • actually reached it. So let's continue. You had already put in a lot of effort.

  • With this quote, he is trying to encourage you to hang in there. Stay in

  • there. Don't, don't, don't just give up. You put in a lot of time and effort already.

  • I know sometimes it feels a little hopeless but you know, stay there. Go for

  • it until you do it. You may never realize how close you were to your goal or dream

  • right now. Sometimes he might mean that. (coughing sound ) I'm sorry. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope

  • it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
