We have a collection of 3 Failure quotes from Toby Young

"I've become a professional failure - in order to pay the mortgage I have to remain unemployed. Luckily, a disaster always seems to befall me at exactly the right moment." (ID 17801)

"America thinks of itself as a meritocracy, so people have more respect for success and more contempt for failure." (ID 17803)

"In Britain, by contrast, we still think that class plays a part in determining a person's life chances, so we're less inclined to celebrate success and less inclined to condemn failure. The upshot is that it's much easier to be a failure in Britain than it is in America." (ID 17804)
