“Difference Between Try and Triumph”

“Without faith, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.” (Mary McLeod Bethune)


“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” (Walt Disney)


“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” (Joel Barker)


“We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.” (Woodrow Wilson)


“The difference between try and triumph is a little umph.” (Unknown)

  1. My mom sent me this quote today, I thought it fit the post rather well 🙂

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
    ~Theodore Roosevelt

    • Sarah –
      Thank you for your suggestion on the quote from Roosevelt. Actually, I had used this quote on the post of December 11, “Hear – See – Do.”

      I appreciate any comments and suggestions and I also appreciate you stopping by my blog. I enjoy your blog and reading about your adventures.

      Enjoy, have fun and “onward through the fog.”
