"Success: To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and
the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure
the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or
a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because
you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
"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 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; because there is not effort without
error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great
enthusiasm, the great devotion, 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 he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold
and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

"If you like eating, begin liking dirt." (CHS, April 6, 2009)
