The Strenuous Life

Today I'm inspired by good ol' Teddy Roosevelt:

I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of efforts, of labor and strife; to preach that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man who does not shrink from danger, from hardship, or from bitter toil, and who out of these wins the splendid ultimate triumph.

  1. Teddy had some issues, but he sure has great quotes. One I like, "If you kicked in the pants the person responsible for many of your problems, you wouldn't sit for a month." Teddy was a James kind of guy.
