There are many CEO's and presidents that have got where they are with intelligence, honesty and all morals intact.
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 April 23, 1910 "Man in the Arena"

I'm just going to give up and go camping in the Ozarks or something. I'm a useless drain on society because I'm poor, right? I'm nothing but a good for nothing little narcissist because I'm member of Gen Y, right?
I've finally decided that I'm going to finally take my useless, thieving, drain on society label and embrace it. Congrats, old folks, one less stupid kid to worry about in your glorious society You've created a society where I can't take responsibility for myself.
So I'm simply going to drop everything and refuse to try.
