My Favour­ite Quotes

  • 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, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and short­com­ing; but who does actu­ally strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthu­si­asms, the great devo­tions; 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 fails while dar­ing greatly.

  • Only those will­ing to walk through the dark night will be able to see the beauty of the moon and the bril­liance of the stars.
