Dinner with Losers
All of us have played the game in which we choose which famous people from history that we'd have over for dinner. Lincoln and Churchill are frequent contenders.
But what if the criterion is losers?
It is harder to compile that list than ones of great or of evil people because a loser in one aspect of life can be a winner in other aspects. Neville Chamberlain, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, and Lyndon Johnson are examples of individuals who had sizable setbacks and yet would score as admirable in other aspects.
That should be reassuring to us all. People can bounce back.
