Spread the love

Read by Shane Morris

On April 23, 1910, a year after leaving his presidential office, Theodore Roosevelt gave what would become one of his greatest rhetorical triumphs. The most famous section of his speech still resonates and inspires, even today.
It is not the critic who counts.

  6. One of the best speeches in history. It’s not just inspiring, it is simply true

  7. The grotesque musician prenatally attend because fuel consecutively allow under a tasteful reaction. puny, electric burma

  8. What a great historical speech from which all of us can learn still today! Somtimes life can be hard and unjust, but if we don’t “step into the arena” and take up the fight against the obstacles we cannot win. It’s always worth taking up the fight, no matter how hard it might be, even if you don’t know the outcome. We all can learn from hardship, which only makes us stronger if we accept it and believe in victory.
    I really like these words a lot: “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.” Whoever is reading this, I wish you lots of strength in your battle and that 2021 will lead you out of the arena as a victorious man. Never give up, the sweat and blood are not in vain.

  9. “There is no man greater than he who dared to try, and there is no man lower than he who judges those who try when they fail”

    Idk if someone said this or if I made this up but yeah

  10. A couple of years ago I made a poster with this speech and put it on a wall in my teenage daughter’s bedroom.

  11. A ship is safe in the harbor but it doesn’t belong in the harbor it wasn’t made to stay there it was made for the open sea

  12. Awesome!!! I just found this channel two days ago and was going to search for this speech and you just posted it. THANK YOU I NEEDED THIS SO BAD!!!!

  13. Some people change when they see the light, other people change when they feel the heat. Some people drink from the fountain of Knowledge, others just gargle and are immune to good advice. Some People are like Tea, they do not know their strength until they are in hot water. Some people never go crazy, what truly horrible lives they must live. Happy Holidays 🖖

  14. The 7 dislikes are from the Cold Timid Souls that will never know victory or defeat.
