"In thy slumber seize on the word I whisper in thine ears; it is a magic word—a mighty talisman, more potent than the seal of Solomon—more powerful than the Chaldean's wand—but it is potential for ill as for Good. See to it, therefore, that it is wisely used. The word is, 'TRY!'" —R. Swinburne Clymer, Dr. Paschal Beverly Randolph and the Supreme Grand Dome of the Rosicrucians in France, 1929

I would say that "Do" is a far magical word in comparison to "Try." One can grunt and groan all day "trying" to - say - pick up a pencil. Or one can simply "do" and pick up the pencil :-)

I agree, Conjurer. As Yoda said, "Do or do not; there is no 'try.'"
