“…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 worth cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly…” -Teddy Roosevelt
