The Man In The Arena

I hope you'll keep up with Jean's Boots this week, as I document parts of my trip to Denver for the National Western Stock Show.

Proudly, I worked for Jungels Shorthorn Farm - a program that proves year after year, they're not afraid to be the man standing in the arena....

"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." - Theodore Roosevelt  23 April, 1910
