Love doesn't just sit there like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new.

Do it anyway

Are you afraid that what you attempt might not work? You could very well be right -- it may not work.

Go ahead and do it anyway. Go ahead and find out for yourself.

Either it will work and you’ll be successful, or it won’t work and you’ll learn something valuable. Even an unsuccessful attempt is much better than no attempt at all.

Success is not a matter of getting it right every single time. Success comes from continuing to persist until you do get it right.

Instead of paralyzing yourself with worry, educate yourself with action. Just one successful attempt can make up for dozens of unsuccessful outcomes.

Get up, get going and give it your best shot. You’ll find a way to make it work.

— Ralph Marston
