  11. 11. "It is not the critic who counts: not the man who pointsout how the strong man stumbles or where the doer ofdeeds could have done better. The credit belongs to theman who is actually in the arena, whose face is marredby dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly,who errs and comes up short again and again, becausethere is no effort without error or shortcoming, butwho knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions,who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at thebest, knows, in the end, the triumph of highachievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at leasthe fails while daring greatly, so that his place shallnever be with those cold and timid souls who knewneither victory nor defeat.“ --Theodore Roosevelt
