Two quotes. One by Edward Everett Hale, and the other by Edward Everett Horton. Both quotes are, loosely speaking about dealing with limitations.
Poem by Edward Everett Hale. 1822 – 1909. Chaplain to US Senate 1903 – 1909.
“I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
From “Masterpieces of Religious Verse” published by Broadman Press in 1948.
Quote of Edward Everett Horton. 1886 – 1970, Comedic Actor.
“Isn’t it marvellous to have some brains? I’m always so helpless.”
-Horton as Horace Hardwick in “Tophat”, 1935.
