Somedays it seems hard to come up with something interesting to post about. I was thinking about this yesterday when I was researching what I would do for my next post. While doing this, I found a quote that I thought so inspiring that I had to post it for all of you. Coincidently, it coincides with a book I recently purchased that I haven't started reading yet about a young Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt.
Teddy Roosevelt was America's first Nobel Prize winner, Commander of the legendary "Rough Riders". He was also a Leader of the Progressive Movement, noted for his exuberant personality and ranked by scholars as one of our greatest presidents. This quote was from a famous speech given in 1910 at the Sorbonne in Paris and I hope it inspires all of you as it did me.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles...The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who is at his 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."
I think it is progressive thinkers, the ones who are unafraid to push forward with fresh, new perspectives and ideas that encourage us to follow our dreams whatever they may be. What do you think?
