The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.

Obedience of the law is demanded; not asked as a favor. Theodore Roosevel

Theodore Roosevelt
When she (my mother) passed away, I kind of understood the commitment that she made to make sure that I could stay in skating. And I wanted to live up to whatever I could. Not so much win everything, but just to be the best that I could possibly be, to honor her memory and everything she went through to make sure that I was given the opportunities to be the best that I can be. Not to be a world champion or an Olympic gold medalist, but to be the best that I could be. And that was the most important thing that ever happened in my career.
Theodore Roosevelt

The joy in life is his who has the heart to demand it.

Theodore Roosevelt
Everyone loves justice in the affairs of another.

Men can never escape being governed. Either they must govern themselves or they must submit to being governed by others.

Theodore Roosevelt
The worst thing I can do is nothing.
Theodore Roosevelt

Is America a weakling, to shrink from the work of the great world powers? No! The young giant of the West stands on a continent and clasps the crest of an ocean in either hand. Our nation, glorious in youth and strength, looks into the future with eager eyes and rejoices as a strong man to run a race.

Theodore Roosevelt
We have room in this country for but one flag, the Stars and Stripes!
