There’s a diffrence between a failure and a fiasco. A failure is merely the absence of success. Any fool can achieve failure. But a fiasco, a fiasco is a disaster of epic propotions. A fiasco is a folk tale told to other’s to make other people feel more alive because it didn’t happen to them.

"And I saw it immediately. We’re the substitute people. I’ve been the substitute person my whole life. I’m not an Ellen. I never wanted to be an Ellen. And I’m not a Cindy either… I like being alone too much. I mean, I’m with a guy who is married to his academic career. I rarely see him and I’m the substitute person there." (Claire Colburn - Elizabethtown)
