It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where long-lasting marriages aren’t what they used to be, especially when it comes to Hollywood.  But actor Sean Connery has proved all stereotypes wrong with his marriage that has lasted 40 years (and counting). His love with his wife Micheline Roquebrune Connery shows that true love still does exist. And despite the fact that their story isn’t the typical Hollywood movie script, they are still best known to the world as Mr. and Mrs. Bond. 

Sean met his wife Micheline in Morocco back in 1970 at a golf tournament dinner, where they felt an instant, undeniable connection with each other.  When they had met, they were both recently divorced, and Sean was actually still in the process of finalizing his. Micheline is reported to have dreamt about his the night they met, and upon waking up, she felt like she had finally found peace in her life, confirming to her that Sean wasn’t just another man. 

The next morning, Micheline returned to the tournament to seek out Sean. But from there, it wasn’t all your typical fairy-tale story. Since they were both living far apart (Micheline was living in North Africa with her kids)  it was a challenge to see each other on a regular basis. The lovebirds also had a language barrier – but also proved that love truly does always conquer all, and their will was strong enough to found a way.

Sean and Micheline have been happily married for more than 4 decades already, and are still very much on the same page, still sharing a passion for golf, which today is also still a big part of their lives. The Connery’s are well known for their adorable dates and for their ability to proudly share with their endless and true love with the rest of the world, inspiring people across the globe to never give up on love.
