Today’s Quote on Never Quiting

It’s better to have tried and failed than to live life wondering what would’ve happened if I had tried

Alfred Lord Tennyson

Today’s Quote by Goethe ~ Inspiring

Like the star
That shines afar,
Without haste
And without rest,
Let each man wheel with steady sway
Round the task that rules the day,
And do his best.
—Goethe.

Today’s Quote by Ernest Hemingway

Before you react, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you criticize, wait. Before you quit, try.

Ernest Hemingway

Good Timber by Douglas Malloch

Good Timber

The tree that never had to fight
For sun and sky and air and light,
But stood out in the open plain
And always got its share of rain,
Never became a forest king
But lived and died a scrubby thing.

The man who never had to toil
To gain and farm his patch of soil,
Who never had to win his share
Of sun and sky and light and air,
Never became a manly man
But lived and died as he began.

Good timber does not grow with ease,
The stronger wind, the stronger trees,
The further sky, the greater length,
The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
In trees and men good timbers grow.

Where thickest lies the forest growth
We find the patriarchs of both.
And they hold counsel with the stars
Whose broken branches show the scars
Of many winds and much of strife.
This is the common law of life.

by Douglas Malloch

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
