A Quote to Live By

"Like all Americans, I like big things: big prairies, big forests and mountains, big wheat fields, railroads- and herds of cattle too- big factories ad steamboats and everything else. But we must keep steadily in mind that no people were ever yet benefited by riches if their prosperity corrupted their virtue.
It is more important that we should show ourselves honest, brave, truthful, and intelligent than that we should own all the railways and grain elevators in the world.
We have fallen heirs to the most glorious heritage a people ever received and each of us must do his part if we wish to show that this nation is worthy of its good fortune." Theodore Roosevelt
