Good Quotes

I ran across a couple of good quotes, both by Theodore Roosevelt. So, I will put them here.

"Just one more reason he is my favorite Pres. “Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity and hardihood – the things that made
America. 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

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the 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 course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at 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 or defeat."

(Paris Sorbonne,1910)
