I love this quote:

It is not the critic who counts;

Not the man who points out

how the strong man stumbled,

or where 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 worthy cause;

Who at 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 know neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
