man stumbled, 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 the dust and sweat 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 course; who at the best
knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who, at 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 nor defeat."
- Theodore Roosevelt
