The Better Chance
By the way, if this page isn’t what you’re looking for, I have a HUGE list of inspirational quotes by topic here.
Not all the earnest men achieve
The splendid height where glory dwells,
But worthiness need never grieve
If folly passes wearing bells.
The vain grow fretful and rebel,
While merit’s patience must be strong;
A man may lose in doing well;
He cannot win by going wrong.
