It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out where the strong man stumbles, nor where the doer of deeds could have done them better, on the contrary, the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena whose vision is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up again and again; who knows the great devotions, the great enthusiasms; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement. However, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt

The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the
silent chambers of the soul.
