To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go ...

To right the unrightable wrong
To be better far than you are
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star ...

This is my quest,
to follow that star
No matter how hopeless,
no matter how far ...

To be willing to give
when there's no more to give,
To be willing to die
so that honor and justice may live ...

And I know - if I'll only be true
to this glorious quest -
That my heart
will lie peaceful and calm
when I'm laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this
That one man,
scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove
with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star ...


Andy Kaufman - 1979 Stand-Up
