My Favorite Quotation. What’s yours?


During my college days, I came across this beautiful quotation attributed to Theodore Roosevelt ( 26th US President), which I liked very much given his life story (click here for further details). It has helped me to refocus in times of great adversity – reminding me now and then that somethings are not the be-all and end-all of life it may sometimes seem to be.🙂 Care to share yours?

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 quotes (American 26th US President (1901-09), 1858-1919
