Quotations by Hale, Edward Everett


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.

Edward Everett Hale (1822-1909) American clergyman and author

To look up and not down,
To look forward and not back,
To look out and not in — and
To lend a hand.
