THE MAN IN THE ARENA
Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic"
Delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910
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.
“It’s only after we’ve lost everything, that we are free to do anything.”
“A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.”
- William Arthur Ward
"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
We usually all jump in the rabbit hole willingly and with our eyes wide open... Very rarely are we ever pushed in while blindfolded.

"I will at first always take the route of civil disobedience and nonviolence in any disagreement and confrontation... However... I can and will go from Ghandi to Ghetto faster than Usain Bolt runs the 100 meter dash... if that is what it takes to defend another person and stand up for what is right."
- The Nomadic Rabbit
"When the helpless becomes hopeless and the hopeless becomes despair... only then will the addict say the five words ... I WANT TO BE ALIVE."
