Great Motivational Quotes For The Order.
« on: 2015-08-16, 06:49:03 »
I will start with one of the best quotes from one of the USA's most inspirational Presidents.

“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.”

-President Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not the critic who counts..."

We were made to memorize "The Man in the Arena" as plebes at the Naval Academy.  I will always remember that quote.

I’ve just returned from a two week excursion across the western plains and Rocky Mountains to the coast of Oregon and back.  We stayed at many National and State parks while out west.  I learned that Theodore Roosevelt had a hand in creating a great many of these parks.  His eloquent quotes are memorialized liberally across the west and I’ve decided that I need to brush up on my history in order to learn more about this great man.

Another of his quotes that I believe applies here is:

“Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don't have the strength.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
"Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress in this period in history." - Roger the Shrubber

Whole documentary on good ol' Teddy and his passion for nature. He is primarily responsible for the legislation that created our National Park system. Was one of his passions. BULLY!!! :)

"Many years ago, as a cadet hoping some day to be an officer, I was pouring over ‘Principles of War,’ listed in the old Field Service Regulations, when the Sergeant-Major came up to me. He surveyed me with kindly amusement. ‘Don’t bother your head about all them things, me lad,’ he said. ‘There’s only one principle of war and that’s this. Hit the other fellow, as quick as you can, and as hard as you can, where it hurts him most, when he ain’t lookin’!"

“Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage. Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker.”
-C.S. Lewis

A quote that I tell myself as I put on the maille and surcoat before a faire or other event to get myself in the mindset of being a knight.

I just wrote a paper on Teddy, definitely my favorite Presidents. I would argue that he is a modern example of the ideals of chivalry.
