The greatest gift life has to offer is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing.

Some suggestions for you :

A politician who really serves his country well, and deserves his country's gratitude, must usually possess some of the hardy virtues which we admire in the soldier who serves his country well in the field.

All the resources we need are in the mind.

I had always felt that if there were a serious war I wished to be in a position to explain to my children why I did take part in it, and not why I did not take part in it.

Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.

It behooves every man to remember that the work of the critic is of altogether secondary importance, and that, in the end, progress is accomplished by the man who does things.

The reactionary is always willing to take a progressive attitude on any issue that is dead.

This was my first real lesson in politics… If you are cast on a desert island with only a screwdriver, hatchet, and the chisel to make a boat with, why, go and make the best one you can. It would be better if you had a saw, but you haven't, so with men.

Most of the men had simple souls. They could relate facts, but they said very little about what they dimly felt.

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

Complaining about a problem without posing a solution is called whining.

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.

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

It is hard to fail but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. In this life we get nothing save by effort.
