Quotation Monday

I stole it....the idea that is from a friend of Sarah's from college whose blog i frequent quite a bit! I am going to try to post a new quote from something i read, heard or made up and ascribe to someone who is also made up (not really). I will not always give an intro but i did feel it necessary for this first one and yes the quote is from a previous blog but as i sat in a local BBQ restaurant and read this quote that was actually hanging on the wall, i was moved even more by what it states!

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of 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 and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, 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 he 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
