Inspirational Lyrics

The Roses of Success


Every bursted bubble has a glory!
Each abysmal failure makes a point!
Every glowing path that goes astray,
Shows you how to find a better way.
So every time you stumble never grumble,
next time you'll bumble even less!
For up from the ashes grow the roses of success!
From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success!
For every big mistake you make be grateful!
That mistake you'll never make again!
Every shiny dream that fades and dies,
Generates the steam for two more tries!
There's magic in the wake of a fiasco!
It gives you that chance to second guess!

Then up from the ashes grow the roses of success!

From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success!

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!

So when it gets distressing it's a blessing!

Onward and upward you must press!
Till up from the ashes grow the roses of success.




These fine motivational words are from the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. We watched to movie the other day, it is a great motivational family movie with a inspiring message of perseverance. I especially love the word to this song so that is why I am posting it now, these words are to profound to be ignored! Watch this move with your family, they just don't make movies like they used to..
