Here is the Man in the Arena speech requested by freefdny, posted here in memory of a hero ..... one who paid the ultimate price for daring to enter the arena.
The Man in the Arena
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 better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena...who strives...who spends himself...and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
Rest in peace.
