“The Happy Warrior”

I have little time for people who say,
We ought not to promise,
That we shouldnít raise peoples hopes
You live by hope
And you live by promise.
Achievement is not enough, because so many times
You donít quite make it
We donít always get what we want but we have to believe that someday
somehow, it will be better,
and that we can do it.
Hubert H. Humphrey
