Water Phoenix

The poorest way to face life is to face it with a sneer. There are many men who feel a kind of twisted pride in cynicism.

There are many who confine themselves to criticism of the way others do what they themselves dare not even attempt.

There is no more unhealthy being- no man less worthy of respect- than he who really holds or feigns to hold an attitude of sneering disbelief toward all that is great and lofty whether in achievement or in that noble effort which, even if it fails, comes to second achievement.

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.

-- Teddy Roosevelt

Profile bonus, this is the best response anyone's ever had towards me,

"A common conservative tactic is to lie and spew out propaganda whole just skirting that fine line that makes you seem like a victim, while having your goal be to spread lies, racism, and hate, and I have a strong feeling that is what you are trying to do here. If anyone doesn't understand, check out "the alt-right playbook" as it details this tactic extremely well."
