One good test is worth a thousand expert opinions. 
  tWernher von Braun)

Success is not final, failure si not fatal;
it is the courage to continue that counts. 
(Winston Churchill)


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, Citizenship in a Republic; Paris, France – 1910)


Dear Life,

Tous les hommes sont menteurs, inconstants, faux, bavards, hypocrites, orgueilleux et lâches, méprisables et sensuels ; 
toutes les femmes sont perfides, artificieuses, vaniteuses, curieuses et dépravées ; 
le monde n’est qu’un égout sans fond où les phoques les plus informes rampent et se tordent sur des montagnes de fange ; 
mais s’il y a au monde une chose sainte et sublime, c’est l’union de deux de ces êtres si imparfaits et si affreux.
 (Alfred de Musset)

C'est impossible, dit la Fierté
