In The Arena.

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 short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and 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...

~Theodore Roosevelt~

(One of my student's had to memorize this quote for Civics , and I was challenged by the man who is actually giving it his best by being in the arena...take it or leave it for what it's worth!)
