Theodore Roosevelt
26th President of the United States
Time Line of His Life

A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards. ~ Theodore Roosevelt 1903

A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt speaks on values important for AmericansCharacter is far more important than intellect in making a man a good citizen or successful at his calling- meaning by character not only such qualities as honesty and truthfulness, but courage, perseverance and self-reliance. ~ Theodore Roosevelt 1890

Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

In a moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

In a moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

No man is above the law and no man is below it: nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

The first requisite of a good citizen in this republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his own weight. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt speaks to people about important issues for Americans The man who loves other countries as much as his own stands on a level with the man who loves other women as much as he loves his own wife. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

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. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

There can be no fifty-fifty Americanism in this country. There is room here for only 100 percent. Americanism, only for those who are Americans and nothing else. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

The great virtue of my radicalism lies in the fact that I am perfectly ready, if necessary, to be radical on the conservative side. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

If I must choose between righteousness and peace, I choose righteousness. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs. ~ Theodore Roosevelt 1897

This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in if it is not a reasonably good place for all of us to live in....Laws are enacted for the benefit of the whole people, and must not be construed as permitting discrimination against some of the people. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Rossevelt uses the Bully Pulpit to speak out on ImmigrationIn the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but is something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.
~ Theodore Roosevelt 1907

That we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American Public. - Theodore Roosevelt
