"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, who comes short again and again, 
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; 
but who does actually strive to do the deeds; 
who knows 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 neither know victory nor defeat." 

~ Theodore Roosevelt ("Man In the Arena")   
Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic"; delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910 

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an 

invincible summer.”

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Who will take responsibility now, for these foolish children? 
~ The Postman
