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 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 cause,
who at best knows 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 know neither victory nor defeat"
~ The husband to Madam Eleanor Roosevelt
This morning, I saw "Courage" in the form of my fellow Blogger, Bong. I pray that we have more faces of "Courage" walking in this Ibu Pertiwi.
Please, please, please read his Tales of Courage here and here to be enlightened and maybe like me, come out inspired, all smiling and crying reading them.
