What People Say You Cannot Do

“The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do,” according to Walter Bagehot.


This could be all about what’s forbidden or contrary, but this also applies to the dreams or new ideas that the nay-sayers scoff at.(1)   Sometimes I’m angry and determined to prove them wrong.  Sometimes I see something more clearly and can see at least some of the steps to get there.   It’s risky to ignore advice from level-headed friends, but people should follow their dreams.



Step-by-step with multiple options, fallbacks, and fail-safes.

Sometimes with a longer time-table than desired.


Follow your dreams




(1) My other quote of the day sums up the relevant grammar…  As Winston Churchill said, “Ending a sentence with a  preposition is something up with which I will not put!”
