Heroes : Teddy Roosevelt

In which I take the advice of the hardest man to ever exist.

You can’t go wrong in life if you live your life according to the rule “What would Teddy Roosevelt do?”, although it may only be possible to follow this through if you have cojones the size of a moose’s. The 26th President of the United States was potentially the most manly man to have ever lived, and any advice he ever gave deserves being listened to.

So today at work we were told to follow some Roosevelt words of wisdom:

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

“If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month.”

“It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.”

“The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything.”

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… 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.”

Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.
