Recipe For Greatness – To bear up under loss; To fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief; To be victor over anger; To smile when tears are close; To resist disease and evil men and base instincts; To hate hate and to love love; To go on when it would seen good to die; To look up with unquenchable faith in something ever more about to be. That is what any man can do, and be great.”
~ Zane Grey

In honor of Zane Grey, a dentist and popular American author of Western genre novels, who was born on this day in 1872.

  2. Thanks for sharing the great quote from Zane Grey. It spoke directly to me, as if you sent a special delivery message with my name on it. I needed to hear that those words of encouragement.
    Thanks so much.

  3. Reblogged this on quirkywritingcorner and commented:
