quote "Failure is more beautiful than success."

Does anyone know who said “failure is more beautiful than success”? I seem to remember I read it in a newspaper, maybe the International Herald Tribune. I can’t find it in newspaper archives and famous quotation webpages haven’t yielded anything either. For what it’s worth, there were several other sentences after this one, and I think they contained the word “edifying”.

Here’s something close. Is this it?

Thanks. That may be it.
