    Heavy Water-It's about integrity, are you in the Arena?

    Man in the Arena (Or Woman)

    "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 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, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming,
    but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself
    for 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 knew neither victory nor defeat."

    President Theodore Roosevelt
    "Citizenship in a Republic,"
    Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

    That's been one of my favorite quotes my entire life. I once gave a toast at my sisters wedding, and I quoted parts of it.
    I gave credit to the author but somehow I got a lot of compliments for choosing it.....

    Great Quote!

    Today's generation of kids (16-30) need to read that and think about it. We are growing a generation of whiners.(squeeky wheels!) " Hey, if I never try anything difficult, I can never fail!" A sad change from our fathers and G fathers generation!

    I take issue with this part of this quote. At the worst? At the worst, he gets himself killed. And then isn't around to be comforted by fuzzy words about the glory of "daring greatly."
