Maybe there is try

Joy lies in the fight, in the attempt, in the suffering involved, not in the victory itself.

    How right you are, my friend. And loathe as I am to abandon Yoda as my mentor, Ghandi has the better part of wisdom on this point. By far. The concept of “Do. Or do not.” negates the journey entirely. But the path is where we fall, we fail, we recover and persevere, where we learn and fly and carry on.

    I like to think that Yoda had an off moment when he said, “There is no try.” I take heart in believing that Luke’s insufferable whining simply bugged the living shit out of him.

    Love it! Exquisite words. That you caught the reference alone is outstanding, though not surprising given your Yoda fetish 🙂
