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.~ Theodore Roosevelt
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.
primadonna-bastille asked: Favorite Greek words?
Meráki μεράκι (Greek)
Meraki is the essence of yourself that is put into your work. It is doing something with soul, creativity, or love.
Your essence is forever connected to whatever it is you have done. This is often referred to as our passion, but the Greek word meraki means more than that.
Meraki is when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.
It is often used to describe cooking or preparing a meal, but it can also mean arranging a room, choosing decorations, or setting an elegant table.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
