The Critic

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out where the strong man stumbled 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 up short again and again...who does actually try to do the deed; who with great enthusiasm spends himself in a worth cause; who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Rosevelt

Hmm. Most people who fail don't fail after daring mighty things. And the face of the man in the arena might be marred by the blood of some poor sucker he's unfairly pummeling. He just might need a critic to tell him to bugger off.

But I see your point :o)
