Thanks to Barry for reposting this speech….some minor edits for our new times to allow us all to relate……!

“It is not the critic who counts, not the person who points out how the strong one stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the one 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 self in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if failing, at least fails while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never known neither victory nor defeat.” – Teddy Roosevelt

“Citizenship in a Republic,” Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

Let us all dare greatly.

Thanks, Deb. TR’s words are always in style, and mostly appropriate to our lives, in good times and bad…
