I have a ton of flashcards that I made… I’m going through them now… I’m up to Skull Fractures… Fun stuff..
Anyway, my neuro prof is a cool guy… He happens to *LOVE* Theodore Roosevelt for some reason… Whenever he tells us something that is a “YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS” item, he says “This is Mucho, Mucho, T.R” as in Teddy Roosevelt… I have no idea why he likes this guy so much…but maybe in 100 years there will be another guy saying “Mucho, Mucho G.W.” (ok… I doubt it..but I digress).
So… on the first day of neuro..he gave us this quote from good ol’ Teddy… I love quotes. And this is a particularly fine one I want to share (and then it’s back to studying.. I promise… i really do).
“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at 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 or defeat.”
Yea, that’s nursing school folks.
