The Man In The Arena

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust 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, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievment, and who if he fails, at least fails daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

T. Roosevelt
