Poster: Pillars of Success

If there is one single thing I could change about academic culture, it would be the way that mistakes are punished and/or scorned, instead of seeing them as an occasion for more learning, just as the proverb tells us: Failures are the pillars of success.

Failures are the pillars of success.
(Welsh proverb)

The source for the proverb is David Crystal’s book, As They Say in Zanzibar: Proverbial Wisdom from Around the World (Oxford University Press: 2006).
