“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 and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, 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 he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt

I’ve got this quote printed off and posted on the wall by my desk so I can see it every time I’m on the computer or doing homework. It’s pretty rad.

OK this quote ought to do it. I read your blog for a bit of motivation in cardiac recovery and this quote is pretty profound. Good luck in your death race. I’m going to shoot for just getting started.

All the best in “getting started” Its quite a journey into self introspection……….we have only one life and what we choocse to do with it is up to us and us only!
