Quotes Suitable for Framing: Theodore Roosevelt






“[A] physician of wealth and high standing had seduced a girl and then induced her to commit abortion-I rather lost my temper, and wrote to the individuals who had asked for the pardon, saying that I extremely regretted that it was not in my power to increase the sentence.”

Theodore Roosevelt, from his Autobiography recalling his days as governor of New York (1913)

“Theodore Roosevelt” and “hero” tend to pop into my mind simultaneously when I recall him, and this is yet another reason for me to cherish his memory.

More to explorer


  1. If you search further: “Teddy Roosevelt- Great President or Enemy to Freedom? » SWW BLOG” you may modify your cherished memory. A progressive is a progressive. BTW, from the Second Letter of St. John, 4-9, “Anyone who is so ‘progressive’ as not to remain in the teaching of Christ does not have God…” If that aborted baby had not been “perfect” would TR have so vilified the perpetrators of that deed?

  2. Nope, Kmbold I would not. I know quite a bit about TR, and I will cherish his memory, warts and all. The demonization of TR by some who call themselves conservatives is largely a result of the hysterics of Glenn Beck and his acolytes who give historical bone ignorance a bad name.
