BERTRAND RUSSELL, Conquest of Happiness

Pernicious-causing insidious harm or ruin; ruinous; injurious; hurtful: pernicious teachings; a pernicious lie.
How can your future be tainted by only focusing on one aspect?

"Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere."
BARACK OBAMA, speech, Jul. 12, 2006
