struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, 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 the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."

*-- Theodore Roosevelt

will take the place of persistence."
