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

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.

  1. Where there was less effort wasted, so is less time wasted.
    It allows you in one page to see your search,
    your Twitter followers, allows you to shortens URLs and schedule tweets in advance.
    For business purpose, Twitter can be used to broadcast
    your company.

  2. What you want to discuss and how you discuss various issues is
    left to you, which again is an advantage especially if you are creating an
    online talk radio station. As an Internet broadcaster, it is high time that you pick on these available opportunities and add that $ilver
    sheen to your broadcasting happiness. Back in the day, people
    had little choice but to take what was given to them as their “lot in life.

  3. Believing that you are actually starving, it releases
    chemicals that actually make it harder to lose weight in an effort to conserve energy.
    Anyone who dares to make a closer inspection will find the underlying
    difference. Many people don’t have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on a regular basis can definitely help when you’re working to lose weight and keep it off.

  4. 00 for the fondant covered frosting, chocolate ganache icing, and marzipan
    frosting and $. I find it the easiest to sift the flour and other dry ingredients before
    I start with the creaming of the butter and sugar.
    This is what you will need on hand to make eight medium eclairs
    with a chocolate glaze.

  5. Even though your goal is just to lose 5 pounds in a week,
    you should be strict with what you do so as not to inadvertently undo all your hard
    work for vegetarian weight loss. Authorities inside the area will need to have
    an intensive understanding of laboratory and labeling techniques, infection security precautions, appropriate blood attract approaches to the elderly and for infants and even more.
    Do not be tempted to lose weight as quickly as you can, because
    a crash diet will have you eating less than a thousand
    calories a day slowing down your metabolism.

  6. Believing that you are actually starving, it releases chemicals that actually make it harder to lose weight in an effort to conserve
    energy. For many working to lose weight, one failure
    is enough to get them off the path to success. The institution has persistently offered ideal programs and services for those struggling to achieve certain levels of body weight.
