The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause who at best, if he wins, knows the thrills of high achievement, and, if he fails, at least fails daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

    Die Ehre gebührt dem Mann, der sich tatsächlich in der Arena befindet, dessen Gesicht von Staub, Schweiß und Blut getrübt ist, der die große Begeisterung und Hingabe kennt und sich für einen würdigen Zweck einsetzt, der es bestenfalls weiß, wenn er gewinnt der Nervenkitzel einer hohen Leistung, und wenn er scheitert, scheitert er zumindest gewagt sehr, so dass sein Platz niemals bei jenen kalten und schüchternen Seelen sein wird, die weder Sieg noch Niederlage kennen.

    il merito appartiene all'uomo che è in realtà nell'arena, il cui volto è rovinato da polvere, sudore e sangue, che conosce i grandi entusiasmi, le grandi devozioni e si dedica in una causa degna che, nella migliore delle ipotesi, se vince, sa il brivido dell'alto successo e, se fallisce, almeno non riesce a osare molto, così che il suo posto non sarà mai con quelle anime fredde e timide che non conoscono né la vittoria né la sconfitta.

    功劳归功于实际上在舞台上的那个人,他的脸上沾满了灰尘,汗水和鲜血,他知道自己的巨大热情,巨大的奉献精神,并且将自己投入到值得的事业中,如果他获胜,充其量只能知道成就感的刺激,如果他失败了,至少失败的胆子很大,所以他的位置永远不会与那些既不胜利也不失败的冷酷而怯tim的人在一起。
