I will fight for the men and women in the arena
I will fight for the men and women in the arena.
If there was a belief I would fight to defend with my life would be Roosevelt’s “the man in the arena” speech.
Everyone loves to sit out in the arena and shout out “c’mon do it this way!” or “you should have done that way!” Everyone loves to be the critic and they are extremely skilled at it. But the men and women in the arena know that we get the credit, the sacred credit only given to those “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…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.”
