My stupid paper revisited
It's a little after 5 AM. I'm almost done with the paper.

Here's a quote from the wall next to my computer:

"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 short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming--but who nevertheless strives to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself is 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 know neither victory nor defeat!"

-Theodore Roosevelt
Note: Thank you, Jeremy, for giving me the quote.
