Convention of Statesmen


A Theme for Valor Publishing Group?

Many people have suggested my publishing company, Valor Publishing Group, adopt this song as our theme. The best rendition I've ever heard of this song was sung by Brian Stokes Mitchell when he performed with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra. Awe inspiring, to say the least! As far as Valor Publishing Group is concerned, what are your thoughts?

The Impossible Dream
from MAN OF LA MANCHA (1972)
music by Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion

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 love pure and chaste from afar
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 fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

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

Deep within my heart, the mission and purpose of Valor Publishing Group is to seek out authors wherever they may be who have written manuscripts worthy of publishing and throwing our all into promoting. We adhere to standards in content and writing I have set for every author we accept. In addition, Valor Publishing Group has company policy that demands the best from each of us. I do not fear, nor have I ever, taking on a lion of immense proportions if I know my cause is just.

Because of this, it seems people who have come to know my company and me believe The Impossible Dream personifies everything in which I believe.

So what are your thoughts? Yes? No? And why?
