To Dare Mighty Things

Today’s Words for the Week are are from Teddy Roosevelt.

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Happiness, wealth, and success are the byproducts of goal setting; they cannot be the goals themselves. — Denis Waitley

  1. Every day the danger grows;
    with every step along the wire,
    from below the hot wind blows
    and the flames are rising higher.
    The rising smoke swirls and hides
    the other end; how far to go?
    The wire sways, the shifting tides
    of fear that those who dare must know.
    Another foot, I slide and pause,
    and then the next, with pounding heart
    that will not bow to safety’s laws;
    for glory I must play my part.
    Some call me mad, some call me brave,
    but I must walk, my soul to save.

    And, if I may, a Youtube clip from ‘The Walk’, set to music.
