Episode Info:

This episode is written and inspired from these Teddy Roosevelt quotes:

“In every field of human endeavor, he that is first must perpetually
live in the white light of publicity. Whether the leadership be vested
in a man or in a manufactured product, emulation and envy are ever at

In art, in literature, in music, in industry, the reward and the
punishment are always the same. The reward is widespread recognition;
the punishment, fierce denial and detraction. When a man’s work
becomes a standard for the whole world, it also becomes a target for
the envious few.”

“It is not the critic who counts; not the human who points out how the
strong person stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done
them better. The credit belongs to the woman and man who is actually
in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who
strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because
there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does
actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the
great devotion, 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 one fails while daring greatly. So that their
place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither
victory nor defeat. Whatsoever you write, or paint, or play, or sing,
or build, no one will strive to surpass or to slander you, unless your
work be stamped with the seal of genius.”
