THE MAN IN THE ARENA
Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic”
delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910
download PDF of complete speech

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, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

  2. You’re so interesting! I don’t believe I have read something like
    that before. So wonderful to discover another person with some unique thoughts on this
    topic. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up.
    This website is something that is needed on the internet, someone
    with a little originality!

  3. Just about all of what you say is supprisingly precise and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. Your piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this subject matter goes. Nevertheless there is actually one particular point I am not necessarily too cozy with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the main theme of the position, let me see just what all the rest of your subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.

    • Thank you. My visitors often do not comment on specific posts or share their opinions here. However, I do encourage people to be skeptical about everything I share here. Do their own research, ask questions, and use what works for them because what is true for me might not be true for you. It’s okay to disagree with me or feel uncomfortable with what I share here. I am not perfect and not an expert – just someone hoping to offer support and choices to others through multiple perspectives.

  4. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
