Be The Best of Whatever You Are


Douglas Malloch set the record straight with this poem. a shop on Etsy can be a burden or a prize. It’s what you make it, as long as you don’t make it your primary source of income. ENJOY the ride. “If you can’t be a pine on the top of a hill, be a scrub in the valley, but be the best little scrub by the side of the rill; be a bush if you can’t be a tree.

If you can’t be a bush, be a bit of the grass, some highway happier make; if you can’t be a muskie, then just be a bass, but the livliest bass in the lake.

We can’t all be captains, we’ve got to be crew, there’s something for all of us here, there’s big work to do, and there’s lesser to do, and the task we must do is the near.

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.”
