Not The Critic Who Counts

Self Portrait by Hawkeye, a trail friend

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 up short again and again...

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.--
Teddy Rosevelt
