Daring greatly

Something to remember when things get tough and people start mocking at you or telling you how better can you do…. when you start to loose courage and feel overwhelmed by everything….

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of the the 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, 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 greater enthusiasms, the greater devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause,

who at the best knows in the end of the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, fails while daring greatly….

-Theodore Roosevelt
