Theodore Roosevelt Quote

Monday, August 13, 2012

The credit belongs to the man 
who is actually in the arena, 
whose face if marred by dust and sweat and blood; 
who strives valiantly; who errs, 
who comes short again and again, 
because there is no effort 
without error and shortcoming; 
but who does actually strive to do the deeds; 
who knows great enthusiasms, 
the great devotions; 
who spends himself in a worth cause; 
who at the best knows in the end 
the triumph of high 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 neither 
know victory nor defeat.
~~ Theodore Roosevelt
