Theodore Roosevelt Quote

Is America a weakling, to shrink from the work of the great world powers? No! The young giant of the West stands on a continent and clasps the crest of an ocean in either hand. Our nation, glorious in youth and strength, looks into the future with eager eyes and rejoices as a strong man to run a race.


Letter to John Hay, American Ambassador to the Court of St. James, London, written in Washington, DC, June 7, 1897
