THE MAN IN THE ARENA (THE WARRIOR)...

  1. This quote is dedicated to everyone on this board...

    “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.”

    President Theodore Roosevelt

  2. Way to make it political.
    Teddy Roosevelt was a liberal hack who gave his incestuous fifth cousin Franklin polio and stole William Henry Harrison’s rightful place on Mount Rushmore.

  3. No, his greatest sin was hubris. By challenging Taft with a third Party bid, he saddled the nation with the execrable Wilson.

  4. Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds and shall find me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

  6. A lighter response to critics from the Comedic Master himself:

    “A certain critic -- for such men, I regret to say, do exist -- made the nasty remark about my last novel that it contained 'all the old Wodehouse characters under different names.' He has probably by now been eaten by bears, like the children who made mock of the prophet Elisha: but if he still survives he will not be able to make a similar charge against Summer Lightning. With my superior intelligence, I have out-generalled the man this time by putting in all the old Wodehouse characters under the same names. Pretty silly it will make him feel, I rather fancy.”

    PG Wodehouse, Summer Moonshine
     
  7. So KFC is the arena here, right?
     
  8. No, the field of play is the arena. We/KFC are/is “ the critic...the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.” Nature if the beast, I suppose.
