If you’re going to try, go all the way

Wishing you a New Year I think of all those who would love to take new steps and look at the new year with lots of hope.

One year before we are going to have 2020, lots of people may have still some good resolutions they will have to fulfill this year.


If you’re going to try, go all the way.
Otherwise, don’t even start.
This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind.
It could mean not eating for three or four days.
It could mean freezing on a park bench.
It could mean jail.
It could mean derision.
It could mean mockery — isolation.


Isolation is the gift.
All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it.
And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds.
And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.


If you’re going to try, go all the way.


There is no other feeling like that.You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire.
You will ride life straight to perfect laughter.
It’s the only good fight there is.

– Charles Bukowksi

    Mr.Ampe, this is indeed a Blessing for the New Year, just seeing you here.
    For I think of you and the Bible Students often.
    Sincerely,
