Words of Wisdom from Two Edward Everetts


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.
