March Fourteenth Success Secret – Douglas Malloch

If you can’t be a pine on the top of the hill,

Be a scrub in the valley—but be

The best little scrub by the side of the rill;

Be a bush, if you can’t be a tree.

If you can’t be a bush, be a bit of the grass,

And some highway happier make;

If you can’t be a muskie, then just be a bass-

But the liveliest bass in the lake!

We can’t all be captains, we’ve got to be crew,

There’s something for all of us here,

There’s big work to do and there’s lesser to do

And the task we must do is the near.

If you can’t be a highway, then just be a trait,

If you can’t be the sun, be a star;

It isn’t by size that you win or you fail-

Be the best of whatever you are!
