To try

Some people say I cannot sing,
but no one can say I didn’t sing.

Florence Foster Jenkins, American Soprano

It is better to have tried and failed than not to have attempted at all, no? It is indeed quite frightening to take risks and try new things. We think, “What if I fail?” What if you do? It won’t be your first mistake. And no matter how bad it is, it probably won’t be your worst mistake. Life’s saddest words are found on a tombstone that reads: “When it came time to die, I had not lived.”
