The Pursuit of Excellence
, Ted W. Engstrom, 1982, Zondervan, p. 92.
The poet James Russell Lowell has said it so well:
Life is a leaf of paper white
Whereon each one of us may write
His word or two,
And then comes night.
Greatly begin, though thou have time
But for a line,
Be that sublime,
Not failure, but low aim, is crime.
