Don’t relent!

Today, I simply have Theodore Roosevelt’s famous speech for you. If you’ve heard it before, let it remind you. If you’ve not heard it before, here it goes!

“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, 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 fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

– Theodore Roosevelt, Speech at the Sorbonne, 23rd April 1910
