Refuse to live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. (paraphrased from Teddy Roosevelt)
Every day we choose. Will we engage in the struggle to create meaning and value? Will we reject ignoble ease, and pursue the more difficult path? Will we make a difference?
Words, so plentiful and cheap, won’t suffice. No one cares about what we say. They care about what we do, what we achieve, how we make a difference.
