"If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month."
"If I must choose between righteousness and peace, I choose righteousness."
"If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs."
"I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do. That is character!"
"Don’t hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!"
"Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage."
– Theodore Roosevelt
