Quote for August 30, 2007

“It’s not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out where the strong man stumbled or where the doer of great 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. And who, while daring greatly, spends himself in a worthy cause so that his place may not be among those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

    I do not know how I feel about Teddy Roosevelt. This was a man who “invited” the current imperialistic attitude towards foreign policy. A man who also said, “Speak softly and carry a big stick.” I admire Teddy’s contribution to the National Parks, but I think that this quote is a little rich coming from the man who led this country through the Filipino massacres. Maybe he should have listened to a few criticisms.
