(Franklin Roosevelt, President of the USA from 1932 until 1945)
A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward.
Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.
Self-interest is the enemy of all true affection.
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
Men and nature must work hand in hand. The throwing out of balance of the resources of nature throws out of balance also the lives of men.
Among American citizens, there should be no forgotten men and no forgotten races.
I have seen war. I have seen war on land and sea. I have seen blood running from the wounded… I have seen the dead in the mud. I have seen cities destroyed… I have seen children starving. I have seen the agony of mothers and wives. I hate war.
The truth is found when men are free to pursue it.
One thing is sure. We have to do something. We have to do the best we know how at the moment… If it doesn’t turn out right, we can modify it as we go along.
I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made.
When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.
There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still.
Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.
A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
Physical strength can never permanently withstand the impact of spiritual force.
In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.
I’m not the smartest fellow in the world, but I can sure pick smart colleagues.
I think we consider too much the good luck of the early bird and not enough the bad luck of the early worm.
There are as many opinions as there are experts.
Take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly, and try another. But by all means, try something.
The nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.
