Fail

Crystal Cathedral Relocates, Rev. Schuller Resigns — Charisma News

I’d rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.   Robert H. Schuller

Robert Harold Schuller (September 16, 1926 – April 2, 2015) was an American Christian televangelist, pastor, motivational speaker, and author.  In his five decades of television, Schuller was principally known for the weekly Hour of Power television program, which he began hosting in 1970 until his retirement in 2010. Schuller began broadcasting the program from the Neutra Sanctuary, with the encouragement of longtime friend Billy Graham after Schuller visited him in 1969. He was also the founder of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California, where the Hour of Power program was later broadcast.

Personally I find most pastors a little officious, and the thought of a personal god bothers me, but I like the sentiment of the quote.
