Monday's Inspiration -- The Man in the Arena

By
Real Estate Agent with Windermere Real Estate N.E.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, 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 short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows 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 know neither victory nor defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

This is the second of my six friends that have been with me for years.  I love this quote and it always serves to remind me to keep unnecessary criticism to myself.
