From the Heartland....................

John E. Smith offers his thoughts on losing and winning - here.  A bit of excerpting here:

"The fatal mistake is to confuse the temporary state of winning with the permanent state of being human."

"Negative feelings are understandable, especially those related to disappointment and regret.  However, the tenure of those emotions should be short.  After all, the rest of your life is waiting without predestined outcomes."

"Trying to operate in a perpetual state that relies on winning will not suffice.   Life does not work that way.  We don’t always win, winning is not everything, and even winners sometimes quit."

"Above all, be gracious, generous, and humble."
