Quote of the day: Theodore Roosevelt

"It is not the critic who counts...The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."

-Theodore Roosevelt

What a wonderful coincidence

Hello Cliff,

It is such a wonderful coincidence that you posted this quote today. I was talking about this quote today because today I rowed in the qualifying race for the Olympics in rowing. TR's quote has served as an inspiration for me over the years as I am sure it has for you.

 Best of luck in all your great endeavors,

Hey, Abe!

It is a powerful quote and one T.R. never failed to live up to in his own life. Dunno if I've been as adventuresome and bold but, within my limitations, I try. Congrats on your rowing prowess, your obvious call to excellence. With T.R. as your spirit guide and inspiration, dunno how you can possibly fail at anything you strive for. Thanks for dropping in.
