Wise words to contemplate on saturday morning

Ainullotfi sent this quotation attributed to Theodore Roosevelt:

“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.”

Syed Ibrahim Alhabshi terjemahkannya secara bebas :

''Kotorkanlah" diri dengan debu kepanasan, basah hujan dan peluh keringat walaupun kemenangan belum pasti malah kegagalan biasa dihadapi. Jangan takut dengan kegagalan kerana mencuba. Jangan gusar dengan kekurangan dan kelemahan. Yang penting kita tahu kita berani berdepan dengan kemenangan atau kegagalan kerana kita telah sanggup berkorban untuk satu matlamat yang murni.
