In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.
Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength.
Let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out.
Knowing what’s right doesn’t mean much unless you do what’s right.
No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.
It is true of the Nation, as of the individual, that the greatest doer must also be a great dreamer.
With self-discipline most anything is possible.
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.
Success – the real success – does not depend upon the position you hold, but upon how you carry yourself in that position.
There are two things that I want you to make up your minds to: first, that you are going to have a good time as long as you live – I have no use for the sour-faced man – and next, that you are going to do something worthwhile, that you are going to work hard and do the things you set out to do.
There are good men and bad men of all nationalities, creeds and colors; and if this world of ours is ever to become what we hope some day it may become, it must be by the general recognition that the man’s heart and soul, the man’s worth and actions, determine his standing.
Criticism is necessary and useful; it is often indispensable; but it can never take the place of action, or be even a poor substitute for it. The function of the mere critic is of very subordinate usefulness. It is the doer of deeds who actually counts in the battle for life, and not the man who looks on and says how the fight ought to be fought, without himself sharing the stress and the danger.
Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground.
Do Something Now. If not you, who? If not here, where? If not now, when?
It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly
so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
Beberapa quotes dari Theodore Roosevelt, Presiden AS ke-26. Habis googling, dan malas kalo masukinnya satu-satu (belum tentu ada waktu juga), mending sekalian tulis semua aja lah ya, haha. Mungkin sedikit menggambarkan seperti apa sosok beliau. Buat motivasi :3
