Goal Achievement Quote – May 10, 2012

“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 not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, 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 he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
—Theodore Roosevelt

Enjoy today.
Achieve today.
Tomorrow is promised to no one!

  1. Teddy knew what was important. Thanks for this inspiring quote. It reminds me of the one that says “the opposite of courage is conformity.” In this age of people trying to find their subjective “purpose” it seems as though your quote holds the key. Be who (whatever that is) you are. That’s Divine purpose.
    Love this profound wisdom. Many thx.
