On Commitment -- Orison Sweet Marden

Who would have ever heard of Theodore Roosevelt outside of his immediate community if he had only half committed himself to what he had undertaken, if he had brought only a part of himself to his task?  The great secret of his career has been that he has flung his whole life, not a part of it, with all the determination and energy and power he could muster, into everything he has undertaken.  No dillydallying, no faint-hearted efforts, no lukewarm purpose for him!
