Theodore Roosevelt: 1858-1919

[Quotations, Panel 1]:

There is delight in the hardy life of the open. There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness, that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy, and its charm.

The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation, increased and not impaired in value.

Conservation means development as much as it does protection.

[Quotations, Panel 2]:

A man's usefulness depends upon his living up to his ideals in so far as he can.

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. All daring & courage, all iron endurance of misfortune, make for a finer and nobler type of manhood.

Only those are fit to live who do not fear to die, and none are fit to die who have shrunken from the joy of life—and the duty of life.

[Quotations, Panel 3]:

I want to see you game, boys. I want to see you brave and manly, and I also want to see you gentle and tender.

Be practical as well as generous in your ideals. Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground.

Courage, hard work, self-mastery, and intelligent effort are all essential to successful life.

Alike for the nation and for the individual, the one indispensable requisite is character!

[Quotations, Panel 4]:

Ours is a government of liberty, by, through, and under the law.

A great democracy has got to be progressive, or it will soon cease to be great or a democracy.

Order without liberty and liberty without order are equally destructive.

In popular government, results worth having can be achieved only by men who combine ideals with practical good sense.

If I must choose between righteousness and peace, I choose righteousness.
