44567
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.<br /> ...more Theodore Roosevelt

Terence
“Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto.
I am human, and think nothing human alien to me.”
Terence

“Make improvements, not excuses. Seek respect, not attention.”
Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Marcel Proust
“Our worst fears, like our greatest hopes, are not outside our powers, and we can come in the end to triumph over the former and to achieve the latter.”
Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time

Montesquieu
“They who love to inform themselves, are never idle. Though I have no business of consequence to take care of, I am nevertheless continually employed. I spend my life in examining things: I write down in the evening whatever I have remarked, what I have seen, and what I have heard in the day: every thing engages my attention, and every thing excites my wonder: I am like an infant, whose organs, as yet tender, are strongly affected by the slightest objects.”
Montesquieu, Persian Letters

Henry David Thoreau
“For it matters not how small the beginning may seem to be: what is once well done is done forever.”
Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience
