NBC12 VIEWPOINT: Happy New Year...It's Not the Critic who Counts!

By: Kym Grinnage email

Now that 2014 is in the history books, it's time to consider 2015 with fresh ideas. The New Year always presents the opportunity for all of us to be bold in our vision of who we want to be. And just remember that along the way there will be those that doubt you, and when they do just remember the words of Theodore Roosevelt:

"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, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the 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 cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
