Fourth Week of February- Value of Defeat

It is not the critic who counts; not the person who points out how another stumbles, or how the doer could have done it better. The credit belongs to the person who is in the arena, who strives valiantly; who despite their effort comes up short; but who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, and dedication to a worthy cause, and who, if fails, at least  fails while trying greatly and ethically. So that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt (edited by PAT)
