An old favorite I want to share !!
It’s not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the
strong man stumbled, or when 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
Who at the best, knows in the end , the triumph of high
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.
