It is not a censor who counts; not a male who points out how a clever male stumbles, or where a doer of deeds could have finished them better. The credit belongs to a male who is indeed in a arena, whose face is injured by dirt and persperate and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes brief again and again, since there is no bid though blunder and shortcoming; though who does indeed essay to do a deeds; who knows good enthusiasms, a good devotions; who spends himself in a estimable cause; who during a best knows in a finish a delight of high achievement, and who during a worst, if he fails, during slightest fails while adventurous greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and shy souls who conjunction know feat nor defeat.
