'Be Positive and Success Will Follow'


“A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything on real issues.”  Theodore Roosevelt

Even 125 years ago American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and reformer Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt was right on the mark with his observance of what makes politics so frustrating for the average citizen yet today.


Born in 1858, Roosevelt was a prolific author, writing with passion on subjects ranging from foreign policy to the importance of the national park system. Roosevelt was also an avid reader of poetry. Poet Robert Frost said that Roosevelt "was our kind. He quoted poetry to me. He knew poetry."


Roosevelt wrote 18 books (each in several editions), including his autobiography and left us with myriad inspirational examples of how to live life, plus sayings on the same.


“If you believe you can,” Roosevelt advised, “you're already halfway there.”
