The conservation of natural resources is the fundamental problem. Unless we solve that problem it will avail us little to solve all others.

Some suggestions for you :

It is out of the question for our people to rise by treading down any of their own number.

It is a mere truism to say that every nation, whether in America or anywhere else, which desires to maintain its freedom, its independence, must ultimately realize that the right of such independence cannot be separated from the responsibility of making good use of it.

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.

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

It's not having been in the dark house, but having left it that counts.

I would rather risk wearing out than rusting out.

Speak softly and carry a big stick.

The most practical kind of politics is the politics of decency.

Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering.

It is no use to preach to children if you do not act decently yourself.

We must hold to a rigid accountability those public servants who show unfaithfulness to the interests of the nation or inability to rise to the high level of the new demands upon our strength and our resources.

Every reform movement has a lunatic fringe.

Unless a man is master of his soul all other kinds of mastery amount to little.

Our chief usefulness to humanity rests on our combining power with high purpose. Power undirected by high purpose spells calamity, and high purpose by itself is utterly useless if the power to put it into effect is lacking.
