My English teacher in 9th grade always used to say, "Don't try harder. Try different."



Tell your English teacher that she ought to use correct grammar! She should say, "Try differently." The modifier is an adverb. This particular adverb ends in -ly.

The quotation is true IF one assumes that the enthusiastic individual has learned from the failure, and is pursuing goals that are attainable and reasonable.



Ahh, there's that generous reading I mentioned.

It is not without good reason that you are one of my favorites here, Lady TrojZyr.

Looks, brains, and can make me laugh!

Close your eyes, give me your hand.

Am I only dreaming?



This had provoked me to add to this - just for fun :

Take my hand, as I close my eyes.
Close your eyes, and come with me, Iíll take you for a ride;
Through abysmal depths of what we can unfold,
Come with me and ride the waves; the waves of thoughts divine...
Am I only dreaming?
