It is not the critic that counts, not the one that points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better.  

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who, if he fails, at least fails while bearing greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. 


Gregg's favorite quote 

Life is a period of time which is simply based on emotions. Human actions are derived from specific emotions. To succeed in life, it is necessary to be able to control my emotions, which, as a direct result, enables me to control my actions. Some say the answer is to block emotions out, but I don't agree. For example, the emotion of love: I have loved before, and it is an emotion I would never block. Even losing love taught me a new and significant approach to life. I have learned what to do when love is lost, and I will never fall into the hole that will be created if I lose it again. And so, from analyzing what I have learned, I have come to the conclusion that if I am able to conquer, overcome, or accept the emotions of everyday life, and learn from the experiences they produce, I will be successful in my life to come.
