THE Quote for 2007...

"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 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 up short
again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great
enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 knew neither victory
nor defeat."

Teddy Roosevelt

(Reading that makes me want to tattoo that on my chest and then go climb Mount Everest. Teddy was the man.)
