Top 10 Theodore Roosevelt Quotes

…And why you should take charge and dare to do mighty things!


“I am only an average man, but by George, I work harder at it than the average man.”


“No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.”


“There were all kinds of things I was afraid of at first, ranging from grizzly bears to ‘mean’ horses and gun-fighters; but by acting as if I was not afraid I gradually ceased to be afraid.”


“Let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out.”


“Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength.”


“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.”


“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”


“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in that gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”


“If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month.”


“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 neither know victory nor defeat.”
