When Hitler came for the Jews... I was not a Jew,
therefore, I was not concerned. And when Hitler attacked the
Catholics, I was not a Catholic, and therefore, I was not
concerned. And when Hitler attacked the unions and the
industrialists, I was not a member of the unions and I was
not concerned. Then, Hitler attacked me and the Protestant
church — and there was nobody left to be concerned.

October 14, 1968, vol. 114, p. 31636.
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I
can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will
not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do,
I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I

First, they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. Then they
attack you. Then you win.

It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights
become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God
hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which
condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence
of his crime and the punishment of his guilt. — John Philpot

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 (Sorbonne, 1910)
