It is common error to infer that things which are consecutive in order of time have necessarily the relation of cause and effect.
Victory, is like a boxer that hangs his gloves, after the consecutive losses; sometimes walking away is what builds character, than the actual fight. As humble fruit on a tree that falls to the ground and rots, never finding appreciation in the taste of mouths. - Anthony Liccione
Every day I beat my own previous record for the number of consecutive days I've stayed alive. - George Carlin
