Deep Thoughts XXXVIII

If you don't try, you won't fail.

The contrapositive is "deep" too:

If you fail, at least you tried.

Nice. Of course, one has to be a bit loose with the tenses to get these things to come out as tautologies. Sometimes the trying is simultaneous with the failing but maybe sometimes the trying comes first, and if backwards causation is possible, the failing might come before the trying. :-)
