Yes it can be done

I came across this quote from a friend's blog and I thought, no matter how hard the world is going to blame and challenge nature conservation efforts, as long as each and everyone who cared believes in the ultimate cause, anything could be done.

Don't give up guys! Allez!

If it couldn't be done

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
But, he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't" but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.

So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, as he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;
At least no one we know has done it";
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.

But just buckle right in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That cannot be done, and you'll do it

Thanks for sharing this!

It's very timely.

We seem to frequently face situations that seem impossible. It's easy to lose heart.

So it's important to remember that it CAN be done. We need only to try :-)
