Short and Sweet

I found this quote and wanted to share:

"What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down."

-Mary Pickford

Wait, who is Mary Pickford? That name sounds so familiar. Was she an author who wrote under a man's name or is that someone else? Regardless of who she is, that's a great quote!
