I would like this quote translated in Ancient Greek, at the time when Alexander the Great ruled....so whatever language was being spoken at that time.

"There is nothing impossible to him who will try"

-Alexander the Great

I'm thinking of having this tattood as an inspirational tattoo.

Also, what would be the correct font/lettering to match that era?

Thanks in advance!!

Alexander the Great's quotation translation?

"There is nothing impossible to him who will try."

I would really and greatly appreciate the favour of someone who may translate this into ancient Greek text.

Please list the English translation after your translation so I can revise it.
Thankyou very much.

No need to look for someone to translate it into ancient Greek.  Alexander said it in ancient Greek, and Plutarch reported it a couple of millenia ago in his Life of Alexander, chapter 58, paragraph 2, line 3:

οὐδὲν τοῖς θαρροῦσιν ἀνάλωτον

— literally, "There is nothing unreachable to those who have courage."
