“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 hill;
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 some happier make;
If you can’t be a muskie then just be a bass…
But the liveliest bass in the lake.
If you can’t be a highway then just be a trail,
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.”
