Beware of "Good Enough"
(Author Unknown)
My child, beware of "good enough,"
It isn't made of sterling stuff;
It's something anyone can do,
It marks the many from the few.

"Good enough" has no merit to the eye,
It's something anyone can buy,
It's name is but a sham and bluff,
For it is never "good enough."

The flaw which may escape the eye
And temporarily get by,
Shall weaken underneath the strain
And wreck the ship or car or plane.

With "good enough" the car breaks down
And one falls short of high renown.
My child, remember and be wise,
In "good enough" disaster lies.

With "good enough" the shirkers stop
In every factory and shop;
With "good enough" the failures rest
And lose to one who gives their best.

With "good enough" have ships been wrecked,
The forward march of armies checked,
Great buildings burned and fortunes lost;
Nor can the world compute the cost

In life and money it has paid
Because at "good enough" one stayed.
Who stops at "good enough" shall find
Success has left them far behind.

For this is true, you should not bluff
Only your best is "good enough."


Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
If you want to be like the folks on the hill."
