It Is Not the Critic Who Counts

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, and comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and
shortcoming; but who does actually try to do the
deeds; who knows the 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 know neither victory nor defeat.
