 Theodore Roosevelt
 Contributor: Simon Waymouth 
April 23, 1910

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them 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; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in aworthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor d efeat.

Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919),
"Man in the Arena" Speech given April 23, 1910

The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything.
