In the Arena

“It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done 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 no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds.” Theodore Roosevelt

This was the quote that my son used to get over the fact that he was too sick to continue the SEAL/s program. Unfortunately it is only meaningful when things are tough :)
