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 in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, 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 have never known neither victory nor defeat.

That’s what I’m talking about.

I'm a picker. I'm a grinner. I'm a lover. And I'm a sinner. I make my music in the sun.

  2. Hey Bethany…I actually don't remember where I got this from (I've had it cued up to post a little while).But I would love to give you the Hat Tip!Much Love!

  3. Taking this advice is noble but daring. Some call it the high road. Few are really willing to take the risk. Unfortunately, I've gone down this road and stood firmly to what I believe – chose my battle and stood firm. No regrets, none at all — except it cost me my job. Interesting how the masses don't really want to go there with you. Great post!
