Theodore Roosevelt Quote
I am a man who believes with all fervor and intensity in moderate progress. Too often men who believe in moderation believe in it only moderately and tepidly and leave fervor to the extremists of the two sides - the extremists of reaction and the extremists of progress. Washington, Lincoln... are men who, to my mind, stand as the types of what wide, progressive leadership should be.
