A Quote by Thomas E. Dewey on community, courage, country, determination, faith, future, energy, and needs

We need not be afraid of the future, for the future will be in our own hands. We shall need courage, energy and determination, but above all, we shall need faith-faith in ourselves, in our communities and in our country.

Thomas E. Dewey (1902 - 1971)

A Quote by Thomas Carlyle on country, newspapers, prose, and providence

Except by name, Jean Paul Friedrich Richter is little known out of Germany. The only thing connected with him, we think, that has reached this country is his saying,-imported by Madame de Staël, and thankfully pocketed by most newspaper critics,-"Providence has given to the French the empire of the land; to the English that of the sea; to the Germans that of-the air!" Richter: German humorist & prose writer.

A Quote by Thomas Alva Edison on belief, country, day, effort, inventions, life, men, theory, and work

I am wondering what would have happened to me if some fluent talker had converted me to the theory of the eight-hour day and convinced me that it was not fair to my fellow workers to put forth my best efforts in my work. I am glad that the eight-hour day had not been invented when I was a young man. If my life had been made up of eight-hour days, I do not believe I could have accomplished a great deal. This country would not amount to as much as it does if the young men of fifty years ago had been afraid that they might earn more than they were paid for.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on anger, country, growth, laws, lawyers, learning, lies, spirit, and talent

The great lawyer who employs his talent and his learning in the highly emunerative task of enabling a very wealthy client to override or circumvent the law is doing all that in him lies to encourage the growth in the country of a spirit of dumb anger against all laws and of disbelief in their efficacy.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on country and good

A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards. More than that no man is entitled to, and less than that no man shall have.

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.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on certainty, country, nations, and possibility

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.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on boldness, common sense, country, failure, mistakes, needs, and temper

The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent, experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it, if it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

There can be no fifty-fifty Americanism in this country. There is room here for only 100 per cent. Americanism, only for those who are Americans and nothing else.

This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in.
