Thoughts On The New Year From Theodore Roosevelt

"I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife; to preach that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man who does not shrink from danger, from hardship, or from bitter toil, and who out of these wins the splendid ultimate triumph."
 - Theodore Roosevelt, 1899

Excellent & timely quote, and a wonderful graphic. I'd not seen that one before - thank you!

"Bully!" As I think he was quoted to say. I am definitely going to share this, even though I think it will go right over the heads of most libs.
I thank you, too. :)

Is it not delightful Reverend? I have never seen it either - nor that particular quote. But it is a good one.
