"It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done 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, and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement. And at worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt – 1910

About the Cover Photo

"Floating Market" is one  of PCD's favorite photos. It was shot from the stern of M/Y BILIKIKI while Paul was filming in the Solomon Islands. His friend and mentor, Stan Waterman, was standing next to him when this photo was captured. This image was seen in the National Geographic website.
