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 and comes up short again and again... 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.
- Theodore Roosevelt
(Who knew that TR understood the Jerome Gambit player???)
Merry Christmas to the Jerome Gambit Gemeinde and to chess players everywhere.
(Readers: I have shared these pictures on earlier Christmas posts. If you remember them, you've been around here a long time!)
