  2. THANKS FOR THE GREAT DISCUSSION… Theodore Roosevelt’s ‘Man in the Arena speech’ on the Sorbonne campus in Paris more than 100 years ago is relevant: ‘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. 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.’
