“To do anything in this world worth doing,
we must not stand back
shivering and thinking of the cold and danger,
but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.”
~ Sydney Smith
Sydney Smith (3 June 1771 – 22 February 1845) was a English writer and Anglican cleric. He was ordained at Oxford in 1796. Smith settled in London in 1803 where he rapidly became known as a preacher, a lecturer and a society figure. His success as a preacher was such that there was often not standing-room in Berkeley Chapel, Mayfair, where he was morning preacher.
