A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on hope, future, live, living, strive, striving, marrow, making the most, embrace, embracing, fullest, purpose, guide, and guiding

On the whole, we think that the greatest victories are yet to be won, the greatest deeds yet to be done, and that there are yet in store for our peoples, and for the causes that we uphold, grander triumphs than have ever yet been scored. But be this as it may, we gladly agree that the one plain duty of every man is to face the future as he faces the present, regardless of what it may have in store for him, turning toward the light as he sees the light, to play his part manfully, as a man among men.

Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)
