Quite Challenge- Day Two

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
President Theodore Roosevelt

Do I need to add here?!

Nothing we do here today can add or detract from what they gave
President Abraham Lincoln

Live! Today is all you have. The house, the car, the new phone are possessions.  To live is to try.   You succeed. You fail.  But in doing so, you create a masterpiece called you.   Good Ole Teddy, he didn’t even lead the Rough Riders.  Battle of San Juan Hill- winner.   He lead Bull Moose Party, it failed, but you know he took on the establishment.   The only time to stay down in the mud is when you are young and have the right company 😉

Be fearless today! Hold that grey twilight for someone else.   Trying is an option.  Failure will happen.  Forget it.  Success is celebrated tonight!

All together now!

      1. LOL! The Gettysburg address. 🙂 I had a cousin (distant cousin) that was killed in the battle at Gettysburg. I have the original letter he wrote to his mother and sister about 1 year before he died.

      2. I had to memorize speeches once. One had to be completely from memory and one was ten minutes with script but you couldn’t read it completely. I memorized the Gettysburg Address word for word. It haunts me to this day. 😆

      3. My mind was still full fictional then. It’s was keeping the first line of a paragraph straight. It was less than three minutes total! I picked the shortest I could find
