   A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.
  ~Author : Martin H Fischer Great Words Quotes

   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.
  ~Author : Theodore Roosevelt Man in the Arena Speech given April 23 1910 Inspirational Sayings

   Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming where everyone is interdependent.

   It is the nature of ambition to make men liars and cheats, to hide the truth in their breasts, and show, like jugglers, another thing in their mouths, to cut all friendships and enmities to the measure of their own interest, and to make a good countenance without the help of good will.
  ~Author : Sallust Witty Sayings
