Great Quotes

"It is not the critique who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena. If he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory or defeat. The joy of living is his who has the heart to demand it!"

~Theodore Roosevelt


  1. This is a great quote!!

  2. We have been sharing with Mr. Potvin's family about the "arena" your family is in right now... many prayers are going up to the Ultimate Giver of strength... or should I say, "The Ultimate Strength Himself" to keep you all strong while you dare to do great things for Him. Miss you all very much! This {{{HUG}}} is for you Naomi! Love ya, Mrs. Potvin

  3. I love the way he said things!
    A great man. A great leader.

  4. How very true! He truly was a great man. Not a perfect one but a great one that we can look to for examples of courage and leadership. He is one of the greatest courageous leaders of American History!

  5. Great quote! I remember memorizing that in U.S. History being one of my assignments.

  6. Naomi, thank you for sharing this...I needed it today. Let us also remember Proverbs 24:16: "For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief." If we stay in the Word and heed wise counsel, God will mold us into great men and women. Though we stumble, He will always be there to catch us and help us to stay in the "arena".

  7. Thank you for sharing. As I've said many times Naomi you are a great encourager. God has used your life to touch so many lives in what is soon to be 18 years. Sorry, we'll miss your birthday this year. Hope to return back to WA by the later part of next week. We miss everyone there.

    God Bless you!

  8. Happy birthday naomi:) your 18!! wow time has gone by so fast your 18 and i will be 18 in 6 months.
