S is for Strength

   Posted by: Faith   in Rye Thoughts

“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 the 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 course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at 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 or defeat.”

– Theodore Roosevelt

Hey there, Good S post today. Yes it does take a great amount of strength to get started and keep on going sometimes when there are doubting critics all around. Sometimes you take a chance and fail, but if you never take chances at all, you most certainly will never know victory. – Debbie
