If I have erred, I err in company with Abraham Lincoln.

-Theodore Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
We have become great because of the lavish use of our resources ... But the time has come to inquire seriously what will happen when our forests are gone, when the coal, the iron, the oil and the gas are exhausted.
Theodore Roosevelt

After the war, and until the day of his death, his position on almost every public question was either mischievous or ridiculous, and usually both.

Theodore Roosevelt
My hat is in the ring.
Theodore Roosevelt

No President has ever enjoyed himself as much as I?

Theodore Roosevelt
Get action. Seize the moment. Man was never intended to become an oyster. Theodore Roose
Theodore Roosevelt

The effort to make financial or political profit out of the destruction of character can only result in public calamity. Gross and reckless assaults on character, whether on the stump or in newspaper, magazine, or book, create a morbid and vicious public sentiment, and at the same time act as a profound deterrent to able men of normal sensitiveness and tend to prevent them from entering the public service at any price.

Theodore Roosevelt
No ability, no strength and force, no power of intellect or power of wealth, shall avail us, if we have not the root of right living in us.
Theodore Roosevelt

There should be at least ten times the number of rifles in the country as there are now.

Theodore Roosevelt
A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything real on real issues.
