up from the ashes

Disaster didn't stymie Louis Pasteur (no Sir!)

Edison took years to see the light (right!)

Alexander Graham knew failure well

He took a lot of knocks to ring that bell.


There's magic in the wake of a fiasco

It gives you the chance to second guess (yes!)

So up from the ashes

Up from the ashes

Grow the roses of success.



Or the buttercups of vague achievement. Or whatever this flower is. Not a buttercup, that's for sure.
