This famous passage from Theodore Roosevelt’s 1910 speech at the Sorbonne in Paris was rapturously received. Nelson Mandela also gave a copy of this speech to François Pienaar, captain of the South African rugby team, before the start of the 1995 Rugby World Cup, in which the South African side eventually defeated the heavily favoured All Blacks.

Today it lives on as a mantra for sportspersons, entrepreneurs and doers around the world. This desk-top plaque for those who believe in themselves.

“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

The design is enhanced by the grain of the wood and each plaque is truly unique due to the natural variations found in the wood grain. The engraving itself provides a tangible three-dimensional quality to the graphic.
