Sorry, I don’t know who said it. Maybe Teddy Roosevelt? *
Anyway, today I stumbled across the perfect example of what this quote means in Nancy Curteman’s last post on Global Mysteries.
Turns out, the best way to become Emperor (even if you’re a pauper) is by self-proclamation.
Check out his story . . . or should that be history?
Thanks for sharing, Nancy!

* Nope, not Roosevelt. Hmm . . . maybe I said it?
Anyway, here’s what Teddy said: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Same cadence, similar sentiment, but not the same quote.
