An old adage that is good
Goes like this: “Can’t never Could”

Don’t say “can’t”; if never tried
Saying “can’t” may be a lie

Try those tasks outside you skill
If you succeed, what a thrill

Can’t a word that I just hate
“I’ll try it”, now that sound great!

    Congratulations on your win, Charles. I agree: too often people hide behind "I can't". How would they know if they have never tried. :-)
