NUMBER:58
AUTHOR:Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)
QUOTATION:Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood—the virtues that made America. The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.
ATTRIBUTION:THEODORE ROOSEVELT, letter to S. Stanwood Menken, chairman, committee on Congress of Constructive Patriotism, January 10, 1917. Roosevelt’s sister, Mrs. Douglas Robinson, read the letter to a national meeting, January 26, 1917.—Proceedings of the Congress of Constructive Patriotism, Washington, D.C., January 25–27, 1917, p. 172 (1917).
SUBJECTS:America
