For me its never trying, both choices may end up giving you regrets but for me it is always enjoyable to try new things, because aside from not being innocent for those things you will not regret and gain some experience or knowledge regarding those activities you've tried.

As with most such questions it depends on what you're failing or trying. In life most of the time the answer is that if you never try something you've failed at it by default and thus might be the worse option.

However if you have an open manhole in front of you and you feel inclined to try and jump over it without actually having been forced to do it I'd say never trying is the better option.

Here's another example. Napoleon tried to conquer Russia. He was successful to some degree but he ultimately failed and it costed him many lost men and his position as an emperor. He'd have definitely been better off if he had never tried. However having the slightest idea about what kind of man Napoleon was maybe he wouldn't have agreed with me.

There is no such thing as failing.

If you don't try, you have succeeded at not trying.

If you try, but SEEM to fail, what you did was really to succeed at trying, only.

It is better to try to do this and get a failure than regretting your whole life for what you did not try.

If you have such regrets, you have not realized that you have succeeded at not trying, but have succeeded at having regrets.

Life is too sad to be anything but short. That's why you think you fail when you don't have the success you want.

Of course, if you had done them, you might have lots of regrets in other ways that you did them.

I would never trying .It would be foolish to not try any way rather than failing because many people in the world dont have the oppurtunity to do it and as i have the oppurtunity i should give it a try, even if i fail i would never give up as it is not in my blood and i would not stop until i am retired.

Only cowards don't try. And when they succeed at failing, if they truly are not cowards, they follow up with succeeding at DOING, the next time.

Never trying

If you try either you succeed or fail and learn a lesson

It's a win win situation

If you never try anything, you will be one of the greatest successes ever. Almost nobody can succeed at never trying anything.

If the case does not apply to criminals to try and do it always. A negative result is too result. This way you gain experience. It is much better to try and know their mistakes, than all life to reproach myself for wasted opportunity.

Never trying can always be worst because failing leads to success as you learn at each step due to the failures in life.Due to failures we can learnt at each and every stage.

Personally speaking, I think that never trying is much much worse than failing because first of all, how will you know if you will fail or succeed if you haven't even tried doing anything about it? right? am i right? Also, never trying means wasting an opportunity you were given to make a difference in your life. If ever you took that opportunity and you failed, perhaps there is a reason behind that failure, and all that's left for you to do is to learn from that failure. Thank you.
