The Olympic spirit that burns within all of us

The following is my favourite quote of all and it’s from President Teddy Roosevelt.

It seems to sum up the Olympic spirit that we have all been enjoying so much from London in the last week. (Picture courtesy of Salvatore Vuono at freedigitalphotos.net)

It is also equally applicable to all of our life’s endeavours…

“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 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 up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

Former President Roosevelt
