'Tis better to have tried in vain,
  Sincerely striving for a goal,
Than to have lived upon the plain
  An idle and a timid soul.

'Tis better to have fought and spent
  Your courage, missing all applause,
Than to have lived in smug content
  And never ventured for a cause.

For those who try and fail may be
  The founders of a better day;
Though never theirs the victory,
  From them shall others learn the way.

Edgar Guest
