At the best quotes

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteIt 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.

 Theodore Roosevelt quotes (American 26th US President (1901-09), 1858-1919)

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteBEG, v. To ask for something with an earnestness proportioned to the belief that it will not be given.



Who is that, father?



A mendicant, child, Haggard, morose, and unaffable --wild! See how he glares through the bars of his cell! With Citizen Mendicant all is not well.



Why did they put him there, father?

--Because Obeying his belly he struck at the laws.



His belly?



Oh, well, he was starving, my boy -- A state in which, doubtless, there's little of joy. No bite had he eaten for days, and his cry Was "Bread!" ever "Bread!"



What's the matter with pie?



With little to wear, he had nothing to sell; To beg was unlawful --improper as well.



Why didn't he work?



He would even have done that, But men said: "Get out!" and the State remarked: "Scat!" I mention these incidents merely to show That the vengeance he took was uncommonly low. Revenge, at the best, is the act of a Siou, But for trifles --



Pray what did bad Mendicant do?



Stole two loaves of bread to replenish his lack And tuck out the belly that clung to his back.



Is that _all_ father dear?



There's little to tell: They sent him to jail, and they'll send him to --well, The company's better than here we can boast, And there's --



Bread for the needy, dear father?

--Um --toast. --Atka Mip
