Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
Remember when you were at school and the summer holidays came. You couldn’t wait for them and then in a flash they were over and it was back to school.
Well, life has a way of passing you by faster than any vacation. You have to grab it while you still have a chance, and remember, any day that the good lord gives you is a chance.
What makes you feel alive? Get out there and work towards it! Enough living in the “gray twilight”
“It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points how the strong man stumbled 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 knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at best, knows 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 know neither victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
