Default Got A Quote You Like? Share It With Us.

When you hear something that rings true to your ear, how would it be to share it with others?

I have a ton of them to share but I want to find more.

Help me out and list some of your favorites.

Rules;

Only list one quote per post,
List the source of the quote (if you don’t know it...look it up ….or sign it anonymous)

Any quote will do, historic, military, movie……….any quote.
Here's the first:

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. Thomas Jefferson

One of my favorites from a great outdoorsman:

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.

From a speech given in Paris at the Sorbonne in 1910 - Theodore Roosevelt
