Teddy Speaks


4. [MANHOOD]:

A MANS USEFULNESS DEPENDS

UPON HIS LIVING UP TO HIS IDEALS

INSOFAR AS HE CAN

IT IS HARD TO FAIL BUT IT

IS WORSE NEVER TO HAVE TRIED

TO SUCCEED

ALL DARING AND COURAGE

ALL IRON ENDURANCE OF MISFORTUNE

MAKE FOR A FINER NOBLER TYPE

OF MANHOOD

ONLY THOSE ARE FIT TO LIVE

WHO DO NOT FEAR TO DIE AND NONE

ARE FIT TO DIE WHO HAVE SHRUNK

FROM THE JOY OF LIFE AND THE

DUTY OF LIFE
