Youth

YOUTH
Theodore Roosevelt

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. (Address at Friends School, Washington, DC, May 24, 1907)


Be practical as well are generous in your ideals. Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground. (Speech at Prize Day Exercises at Groton School, Groton, MA, May 24 1904)


Courage, hard work, self-mastery, and intelligent effort are all essential to successful life. (America and the World War, 1915)


Alike for the nation and the individual, the one indispensable requisite is character. (American Ideals, 1897)
