A mini statement of strength.
illegitimi non carborundum...
don't let the bastards grind you down.
For the dissidents.
For everyone dealing with critics- including the inner ones- or with backseat drivers and armchair experts. For those fighting silently, maybe alone, or who may be struggling with imposter syndrome or invisible illness. For those in relationships that no longer serve, who are shedding old ways and forging new paths...
We're all up against something.
- Solid sterling construction.
- 100% built by hand.
- Pendant measures just over 3/4" and is suspended from an 18" silver chain.
- May be lengthened upon request for an additional fee.
"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."
