"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strongman 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, and 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 the 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 know neither victory nor defeat."- Theodore Roosevelt, Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

Merry Christmas everyone!

“Joy cannot be pursued. It comes from within. It is a state of being.  It does not depend on circumstances,but triumphs over circumstances. It produces a gentleness of spirit and a magnetic personality.”

Billy Graham
An excellent quote from someone who was  much smarter than I.    During this holiday season please remember happiness can not be derived from the latest LCD TV.  The secret is happiness comes from with in and not from material things of this world.
