Theodore Roosevelt

You cannot create prosperity by law. Sustained thrift, industry, application, intelligence, are the only things that ever do, or ever will, create prosperity. But you can very easily destroy prosperity by law.

Theodore Roosevelt

Let us speak courteously, deal fairly, and keep ourselves armed and ready.

Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt
We do not admire a man of timid peace.
Theodore Roosevelt

Boxing, jiu-jitsu, scaling the Matterhorn... I did cardio before cardio was cool.

Theodore Roosevelt
In battle, the ONLY bullets that count are those that hit.
Theodore Roosevelt

It is not the critic who counts

Theodore Roosevelt
There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all.
