               It’s not the critic who counts
        or how the strong man stumbled and fell
   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 enthusiasm, the great devotion,
          and spends himself in a worthy cause;
   and if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly;
                    so that he’ll never be
              with those cold and timid souls
           who know neither victory nor defeat.

                  -- Theodore Roosevelt
