Default Kindly critically evaluate" Impossible is often untried"

We are living in a society where we observe rapid progress and development almost in every field of life. Technological advancement has made possible traveling large distances in a short span of time. We are exploring universe by sending satellites in space and digging deep in the crust to find out more and more useful minerals and oil reserves. In the field of Medical sciences, vaccines and medicine are now available in markets for the diseases which were incurable in the past. Quick sources of communication have turned this world into a global village. Man is trying to explore every nook and corner of the universe to quench its thirst of inquisition. Now question arises, what is the driving force behind all these achievements and how the impossible of yesterday has turned into achievement of today. There are two factors behind it. One is inquisitive nature of human beings and the other is circumstances and challenges we are faced with. Both of these factors drive us to action and help us in overcoming all the circumstances and challenges that hinder our path and pose a threat to our existence one way or the other. Everything is impossible and remains impossible till the time we start exploring it. What makes things look like impossible? Anything appears impossible till the time we have very little knowledge about it or we are not giving it due importance which is required to understand it and explore it. The more a thing challenges us, the more we go after it. The best approach in achieving something is to strive for it without caring too much about the end and the attitude of giving it a try before declaring it impossible.

Wahab i think ur expansion is awesome, Believe me u can achieve the best if u continue this work. u used good vocabulary and showed a great grammatical skill in ur passage. but according to me u missed one very important thing from ur writing and that was ur proper introduction. u must know that an intro is the head of any body and u r required to tell in the introduction about ur opinion regarding the question posed or the quotation or phrase asked. in ur passage i could not understand ur view point, either u support it or not, untill i reached the last lines of the paragraph. So, u must pay heed towards this technical fault and u will be InshaAllh through in this paper.

Default please evaluate critically and from exam point of view

Impossible is often untried

Challenge is the other name of life. Life puts certain sequence of situations before man to test his abilities and temperament. Most often people surrender to tasks they think difficult and subsequently make their mind that impossibility exists in the practical life. They often get afraid of troubles and challenges and fail to face them. They forget the lessons of history and deeds of great men. Even they overlook that all the today’s blessings of science were once a “dream impossible” for men. Historically, men of honor rose to the occasion and accomplished all “impossible” tasks. They made the life easier for the future generations and laid down the strong foundations of science and technology. They conquered the world by their abilities, passion and efforts. They are still learned as the shining stars in the human history. Impossibility is merely a product of human mind that instinctively loves pleasure and comfort rather than hardship and struggle. Lazy and idle people generally avoid challenges and call the difficult tasks as impossible one. Real development of Pakistan based on political stability, economic sustainability and social growth is also believed as a dream. Actually, this is a dream for those who never tried to take part in the country’s growth, and a practical reality for those who are still burning their midnight oil. Similar situation surfaced when Iqbal floated the idea of separate homeland. Many were of the opinion that Pakistan would not be economically and politically a viable state. But there were people of substance like great Quaid who scrapped the word impossible from their dictionary. They struggled and succeeded. Again it became a history and so a lesson that impossible is often untried.

great language and great expression dear without any grammatical mistake.

however, dear ur conclusion doesnot portray ur actual point of view. as u gave all those point which were impossible initially but were achieved later on with hard work and dedication. but finally u wrote that impossible is often the untried and in this way u supported the idea. rather u should say in conclusion that initially things appear impossible to achieve but with hardwork and dedication people can acheive them. and break that notion that impossible is often the untried.

The impossible is often untried (CSS-2010)


“Anything at all is possible. Some things are unlikely. Some things will never happen. But they always could at any time.” -- Ashly Lorenzana


The proverb” impossible is often untried” means there is nothing impossible in this world. Everything is impossible before they are possible. Man of the Stone Age would have never thought of flying, like birds, in the sky. Neither would he have had thought of descending to surface of lunar. Many things that were impossible in the past are now possible. All such things became possible because of endeavor. As the saying goes:

“Try try try and one day you can fly.”

The invention of Airplane, say for example, is one of the biggest achievements of the man. Before the invention of airplane in 1903 by Wright Brothers, nobody could imagine they would fly in the sky like birds; and they would invent supersonic afterwards. Similarly, nobody would have thought of reaching up to the moon before” Neil Armstrong descended to the lunar surface in 1969. Now man not only walks on the moon but also making it possible to grow vegetables there. By the same token, American War of Independence is a case in point where Americans tried and got independence from Britain in 1783. There are a great many other examples which show that things are impossible until they are tried.

In view of the above mentioned fact, there is no harm in saying that God has endowed man with striking faculties. He can do anything within certain limits, so everything is possible unless they are tried.

“We have this history of impossible solution to insoluble problems.”-- Will Eisner
