Quotes: Theodore Roosevelt

Some quotes from Theodore Roosevelt. I would never of thought from our current crop of Republicans that any Republican could make this much sense. Too bad they have lost their way. This first quote is the most moving and relevant to our current situation in this country.


"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


"There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities."
--Theodore Roosevelt
Source: Speech before the Knights of Columbus, New York, October 12, 1915



"We can have no "50-50" allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all."
--Theodore Roosevelt



"The man who holds that every human right is secondary to his profit must now give way to the advocate of human welfare."
--Theodore Roosevelt

Outstanding quotes from TR. Thanks for sharing those with us. We as Americans should commit those to memory.
