A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on children, destruction, prosperity, and usefulness

To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.

Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)
