Will makes men giants

Resolve is what makes a man manifest;

not puny resolve, but crude determination;

not errant purpose - but that strong and indefatigable will

which treads down difficulties and danger,

as a boy treads down the heaving frost-lands of winter;

which kindles his eye and brain

with a proud pulse-beat toward the unattainable.

 

Will makes men giants.

 

- Donald G. Mitchell
