It is enough to love the trying itself - in order always to be on the winning side... Let's try it.

I've done my best and I begin to understand what is meant by the `joy of the strife.' Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing. Girls, don't talk about exams!

Next to trying is doing, next to winning is enjoying your doing, there is no second best.
