T is for Try


"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to TRY just one more time." ~ Thomas A. Edison

I don't really have anything to add to this one. :)

  3. I need to get this quote tattooed inside my brain or something. Quitting is something I always feel tempted to do, especially lately, LOL.

  7. This is so true. No one is a failure if they tried only if they never begun

  8. One of the best examples of trying is a baby standing on its feet and taking the first step.

  9. Too many of us give up too soon. Edison had a lot of faults as a person (I visited his home in Ft Myers, once, and it was fascinating to learn about Edison the person) but he was one of the most persistent people of his times, I suspect. His persistence really was the secret of his success more so than his talent. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
