Better to "Dare Mighty Things"

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

-Theodore Roosevelt

    • Thanks so much for your comment, Marcus. You’re not alone. You’re also not alone when you get back up and keep fighting…just because. There’s the glory; you live to fight another day. Never surrender, my friend!

  1. Thanks for sharing Denise. I just had a beautiful experience with a seagull this morning and it reminded how wonderful animals and nature are. I wish more people in the world could see the beauty I see. Thankyou Denise.

    • How amazing, Dean! I love animals and I always try to use their images in my contributions. Thanks for your meaningful comment. Stay safe, be well, and keep your amazing work at Pippies coming. I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us!

  2. Love the image. Elephants have so much in common with humans. Family-oriented and fiercely protective of their young, Asian elephants have the greatest volume of cerebral cortex available for cognitive processing. Elephants have a volume of cerebral cortex available for cognitive processing that exceeds that of any primate species, with one study suggesting elephants be placed in the category of great apes in terms of cognitive abilities for tool use and tool making.

    • Wow, Michael! I have always loved elephants. I even had a chance to ride one. They are so gentle and fierce when they need to be. I think that this quote inspires us to be daring and bold because nothing will change these days for the better if we just sit on the sidelines. We can’t let fear win.
