My dear,

Try, try again has it’s limits.

Like stupidity.

If it’s stupid to try any further than you’ve already tried, then stop. For Pete’s sake, stop. You shouldn’t keep going just because some oft-referred to quote out there told you to keep going no matter what. You shouldn’t be peer pressured into continuing.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again; then quit. There’s no use being a damn fool about it.

Falsely yours,
William Claude Dukenfield
