Citáty Theodore Roosevelt

„Nikdy som v mojom živote nezávidel ľudskú bytosť, ktorá viedla ľahký život; Závidel som mnohým ľuďom, ktorí viedli ťažké životy a viedli ich dobre.“

—  Theodore Roosevelt

Original: I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life; I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.

„Vzdelávať človeka v myslení, ale nie v morálke, je vzdelávať hrozbu spoločnosti.“

—  Theodore Roosevelt

Original: To educate a person in the mind but not in morals is to educate a menace to society.

„Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.“

—  Theodore Roosevelt, The Greatest American President: The Autobiography of Theodore Roosevelt

„Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.“

—  Theodore Roosevelt
Context: There are many kinds of success in life worth having. It is exceedingly interesting and attractive to be a successful business man, or railroad man, or farmer, or a successful lawyer or doctor; or a writer, or a President, or a ranchman, or the colonel of a fighting regiment, or to kill grizzly bears and lions. But for unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly makes all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison. It may be true that he travels farthest who travels alone; but the goal thus reached is not worth reaching. And as for a life deliberately devoted to pleasure as an end — why, the greatest happiness is the happiness that comes as a by-product of striving to do what must be done, even though sorrow is met in the doing. There is a bit of homely philosophy, quoted by Squire Bill Widener, of Widener's Valley, Virginia, which sums up one's duty in life: "Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are." Ch. IX : Outdoors and Indoors, p. 336; the final statement "quoted by Squire Bill Widener" as well as variants of it, are often misattributed to Roosevelt himself. Variant: Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. Attributed to Roosevelt in Conquering an Enemy Called Average (1996) by John L. Mason, Nugget # 8 : The Only Place to Start is Where You Are. <!-- The Military Quotation Book, Revised and Expanded: More than 1,200 of the Best Quotations About War, Leadership, Courage, Victory, and Defeat (2002) by James Charlton -->

„The only man who makes no mistakes is the man who never does anything.“

—  Theodore Roosevelt
As quoted by Jacob A. Riis in Theodore Roosevelt, the Citizen (1904), chapter XVI A Young Men's Hero http://www.bartleby.com/206/16.html

„To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or 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
Context: The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or 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. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else. Kansas City Star (7 May 1918)
