Theodore Roosevelt: His Essential Wisdom

Edited by Carol Kelly-Gangi

[spine]   Kelly-Gangi  Theodore Roosevelt: His Essential Wisdom  [logo]

[flaps]

Considered by historians as the architect of the modern presidency, Theodore Roosevelt’s life in public service was marked by great intellect, a strong leadership style, and many passionate views.  Though born into wealth and privilege, he fought mightily to overcome life-threatening illness in his youth and to remake his frail body to match the vigor of his mind. He also overcame personal tragedies, wrote prodigiously, and launched a thunderous wave of progressive legislation that forever changed America.

Theodore Roosevelt: His Essential Wisdom gathers hundreds of notable quotations from Roosevelt’s speeches, books, essays, articles, letters, diaries, and other writings through the years.  Arranged thematically, the selections reveal his thoughts, insights, and philosophies on everything from politics, politicians, and political parties to books, sport, and life’s pleasures.

In these quotations, Roosevelt:

·         shares his views on American nationality and love of country;

·         expresses his thoughts on the role of the United States as a world power;

·         speaks passionately about doing away with the inequality which means injustice ;

·         affirms the need for preserving America’s natural resources.

Complete with a selection of quotations from friends, family, fellow naturalists, politicians, historians, and writers who share their insights about Roosevelt and his enduring legacy, Theodore Roosevelt: His Essential Wisdom offers an illuminating look at a remarkable leader and electrifying man.

Carol Kelly-Gangi is an editor and attorney. She is the editor of such titles as The Essential Wisdom of the Presidents, The Essential Wisdom of the Saints, The Essential Wisdom of the Founding Fathers, Abraham Lincoln: His Essential Wisdom, and Essential African American Wisdom. She lives in New Jersey with her husband and two children.

[back cover]

“Our country offers the most wonderful example of democratic government on a giant scale that the world has ever seen; and the peoples of the world are watching to see whether we succeed or fail.”

 “The government ought not to conduct the business of the country; but it ought to regulate it so that it shall be conducted in the interest of the public.”

“If elected, I shall see to it that every man has a square deal, no less and no more.”

“Optimism is a good characteristic, but if carried to an excess it becomes foolishness. We are prone to speak of the resources of this country as inexhaustible; this is not so.”

“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.”
