    This is one of the best!

    "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, 1910. God bless America
    The purpose of fighting is to win,
    there is no victory in defense.
    The sword is more important than the shield,
    and skill is more important than either.
    The final weapon is the brain,
    all else is supplemental.

    Here, here; Teddy was a complex man. I don't adhere to his progressive policies, but respect what he did for the Natn'l Park system.

    That, and the BIG stick quote; timeless...

    (Fully warily let him watch,)
    Full long let him look about him;
    For little he knows where a foe may lurk,
    And sit in the seats within.

    That's the quote I use on my linkedIn page.

    He is FULL of great quotes, but I do agree that his progressive policies were not my favorite. Same thing with Ronnie... yea, I said it!

    I'm not "dissing" him, he was my favorite president to date. My point is that no president will ever be perfect.

    Sorry...I guess the context cornfused me.

    I like Ike, his warning on the military & industrial complex is coming WAY too true.
    Citizens; and only citizens should control in which direction this Republic sways.
    Less Gov; = more money in my pocket...the way it should be!!!
