deed

A Quote by unknown on deed, failure, and life

Many lives fail from inability to deliver the last blow; a workman lifts his iron maul repeatedly upon the plow until the deed is done. Which blow split the rock? They all did, but without the last one the first one and all between would have come to nothing.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on achievement, deed, defeat, effort, enthusiasm, errors, failure, soul, timidity, and victory

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 and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, 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 he 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 (1858 - 1919)
