“Use the talents you possess. The woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang the very best,” said Henry Van Dyke.
I found this delightful quote in an e-mail newsletter from one of my favorite restaurants for lunch—the Chocolate Angel Café & Tea Room.
It reminds me of an article I read years ago. It was about people who give up their interest in art or playing the piano or competing on the tennis court because they know they’re never going to be the best or the winner.
Henry Van Dyke suggests a different approach. Do the best you can, and enjoy what you can accomplish.
