Man, I sooooo remember "The Little Engine That Could". As I more or less collapsed emotionally I withdrew from so many things and tried to back off them by saying, "I can't". My Mom always reminded me of all the times she had read this book to me. It really is a treasure, right up there with "The Roly Poly Puppy", "The Tawny Scrawny Lion", "The Little Red Hen", etc.
Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me. (Woody Guthrie)
