Quote of the week: President Roosevelt

This week's quote comes from President Roosevelt of the United States of America. He was the 26th President and affectionately known as teddy.

I take from the quote that we shouldnt bother with our critics because it is the person who acts/perseveres that really counts. I just wanted to share the quote which i read on an PSA for the new Dominica Freedom Party Political Leader on the New Chronicle newspaper.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man or woman who points out how the strong man or woman stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man or woman 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; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself or herself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he or she fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his or her place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt – American President
