Inspirational Quote from Theodore Roosevelt

While surfing the internet today for noteworthy positive news, I came across a quote from Theodore Roosevelt about handling adversity. I think it is a fitting way to begin your week by reading and taking to heart his message:

It is not the critic who counts,
nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled,
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 and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms, 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 timid souls
who know neither victory nor defeat.
- Theodore Roosevelt

No matter what challenges life throws at you this week, give it your best, and you'll be a winner either way. I close with a quote from the greatest college football coach of all-time, Paul Bear Bryant:

If you believe in yourself, have dedication and pride and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
- Paul Bear Bryant

Make it a great week!
