“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.”

Theodore Roosevelt
“Citizenship in a Republic,”
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

[“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those POOR spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither VICTORY nor defeat” – Theodore Roosevelt]

“Every soul who comes to earth
with a leg or two at birth
must wrestle his opponents knowing it’s not what is,
it’s what can be that measures worth.
Make it hard, just make it possible
and through pain I’ll not complain.
My spirit is unconquerable,
fearless I will face each foe, for I know I am capable.
I don’t care what’s probable,
through blood, sweat, and tears, I am unstoppable.”
– Anthony Robles, ASU Wresting National Champion & 2011 ESPY/Jimmy V Perseverance Award Winner
