If you want a thing bad enough

“If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it, to give up your time, your peace and your sleep for it …

if all that you dream and scheme is about it, and life seems useless and worthless without it …

if you gladly sweat for it and fret for it and plan for it and lose all your terror of the opposition for it …

if you simply go after that thing you want with all of your capacity, strength and sagacity, faith, hope and confidence and stern pertinacity …

if neither cold, poverty, famine, nor gout, sickness nor pain, of body and brain, can keep you away from thing that you want …

if dogged and grim you beseech and beset it, with the help of God, you WILL get it!”
