I like the man who faces what he must,/ With steps triumphant and a heart of cheer;/ Who fights the daily battle without fear.
Heroic deeds, to use whatever dower/ Heaven has bestowed, to test our utmost power.
Forget the past and live the present hour.
Forget the past and live in the present hour./ Now is the time to work, the time to fill/ The soul with noblest thoughts, the time to will.
The victory of success is half done when one gains the habit of work.
