“Can’t Do is Like Don’t Care.”

“Mother gave me support with one of her terse asides:”That’s what you want to do? Then nothing beats a trial but a failure. Give it everything you’ve got. I’ve told you many times ‘Can’t Do is like Don’t Care.’ Neither of them have a home.”

Translated, that meant there was nothing a person can’t do, and there should be nothing a human being didn’t care about.”
