Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt, The Strenuous Life

It is normal for me to catch errors on posts days after publishing and to correct those errors, although this is not usually a repetitive endeavor for any given post. However, every time I read my July 3 post on the Second Amendment, I find weak grammar, poor writing, and incomplete or weak logic. I have made major corrections several times, the most recent of which was moments ago. If you take the time to read the post again, then please do the same with the one entitled, “On English.”

You may rightly appreciate the hard work most of us must invest in our writing to improve it. Writing with eloquence is not something that is an inherent natural talent for me. Any positive attributes in my writing, and I am not sure there are any, come with effort.
