Failure called Joy

". . . I saw that our struggles and dreams all tangled up in the same failure, and that failure was called joy." - Amadeo Salvatierra, in Roberto BolaƱo's The Savage Detectives (p. 379)

Nice.

It's interesting to think about the "Ever tried / Ever failed / Fail again / Fail better" credo when applied to the project of social revolution. We'll fail again next time, too, but we'll fail better.
