On this day in history, “Cowboy Wisdom” from Teddy Roosevelt

On 23, Apr 2013 | In Cowboy Wisdom | By Arengee

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.

– Theodore Roosevelt, excerpt from “Citizenship in a Republic” delivered on this date, 1910 at the Sorbonne
