Quick Quote

    This is not my normal style of quote that I put on here, but this is a quote that's always pushed me to try harder and push myself. It's a great quote to encourage us to just do something.

    “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 a worthy 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 defeat.”

                                      -Theodore Roosevelt


  1. I remember you telling me this quote on one of those late Sunday night talks quite a while ago. I haven't forgotten it since. :)

    1. So I'm not the only one who vividly remembers those talks? And recalls them to memory rather frequently?
