Logic + Emotion - sounds like learning to me

For those of you who have been with the Corp. eLrn. Dev. blog for a while, you know that I also take quite an interest in design, creativity, innovation, leadership, and much more.  My most recent nugget found in the blogosphere is Logic+Emotion.  I highly recommend you add it to your feedreader.  Remember that training/learning is about effecting a change in behavior and you can't do that without influencing logic & emotions.  This is why I've discussed the similarities between marketing and elearning in the past(here, here).  The 2 are so closely related it's scary.  And its why DESIGN is critical to instructional design, but all of the other fields of design. 
But L&E had one of my favorite quotes yesterday:
"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
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 up short again and again, because there
is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great
enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 he fails
while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold
and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."  - Teddy Roosevelt
