Quote of the Minute
Letter to John Hay, 1897

“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 the 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

    “You had to hate the Colonel a whole lot to keep from loving him.”

Irwin S. Cobb

    “You go to the White House, you shake hands with Roosevelt and hear him talk – and then go home to wring the personality out of your clothes.”

Richard Washburn Child

    “He had that quality which the Medieval Theologians assigned to God – he was pure act.”

Henry Adams

    “The only trouble I ever had in managing him [when TR was U.S. Civil Service Commissioner] was that he wanted to put an end to all the evil in the world between sunrise and sunset.”

President Benjamin Harrison

    "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."

Theodore Roosevelt

    "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 short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best, knows 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 know neither victory nor defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt

    "I am delighted to have you play football. I believe in rough, manly sports. But I do not believe in them if they degenerate into the sole end of any one's existence. I don't want you to sacrifice standing well in your studies to any over-athleticism; and I need not tell you that character counts for a great deal more than either intellect or body in winning success in life. Athletic proficiency is a mighty good servant, and like so many other good servants, a mighty bad master. "

Theodore Roosevelt

    "No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency."

Theodore Roosevelt

    "I am as strong as a bull moose. You may use me as you will."

Theodore Roosevelt

    “Nine tenths of wisdom is being wise in time.”

Theodore Roosevelt
