Is crap the best fertilizer?

Posted By from September 3, 2012

“crap is the best fertilizer”

So here is a quote I read over the weekend.  To put it into context, it is referring to all the times you fall on your face attempting to do something great in your life (I.e. write your best song, land your dream job, paint your best painting, try to fall in love, etc.).  Supposedly the idea is that these failed attempts will just become fertilizer, eventually allowing you to reach your best potential.  So essentially the more crap attempts = more fertilizer.

Does this make sense?  Could this be possible?  I’m inclined to think so…

What do you think?
