It is not the critic who counts,
not the man who points out how
the strong man stumbled, or
where the doer of deeds
could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who
is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and
sweat and blood,
who strives valiantly,
who errs and comes short again and again,
who knows the great enthusiasms,
the great devotions,
and spends himself in a worthy cause, who
at best knows achievement and who
at the worst if he fails
at least fails while daring greatly so
that his place shall never be
with those cold and timid souls who
know neither victory nor defeat.
- Theodore Roosevelt -
