"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who knows
the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself
in a worthy cause; who at best, if he wins, knows the thrills
of high achievement, and, if he fails, at least fails daring
greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold
and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
John F. Kennedy
