If At First You Don’t Succeed, etc…

When all the cards seem stacked against you, when the road is long and rocky and all uphill, when it seems that the whole world and everything in it tells you you can’t do it because you just don’t have it in your genes to do it… don’t listen to all the negative nellies, and whatever you do, don’t give up.

Sometimes, no matter how hard it gets, no matter how many times you fall, you just gotta keep getting back up, and you just gotta get dressed up, and you just gotta keep on trying.

Even if your wheels fall off, or you go right off the road into the bushes, or you drive right into a rock wall, you just gotta get back up, brush yourself off, put on your best suit, smile at the doubters with a big ass toothy grin, and with steely eyed determination get back into the drivers seat, stamp on the gas pedal, and go for it.

Goal setting and determination is what separates the humans from the monkeys, I guess.

Never give an inch… and never give up.

Don’t never say never.

Success is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.

Whatever it is you’re trying to do, you can do it if you just keep on trying.

    And I say determined progressives can beat the pants off the chimps any day of the week.

  1. May I quote you?  and your image?

    Do you mean

    Don’t “never say never”

    a statement I’d interpret as “it’s okay to say ‘never’.”


    Don’t never say never

    as a typically southern double negative for reinforcement rather than negation.  As in “don’t never use no ‘Shinola’ on y’alls Bruno Magli’s: use that high-end stuff!”  — sumpn my mama always told me growin up.

    Is that an African or European swallow?  Aaaaahhhh….
