I again recommend a law prohibiting all corporations contributing to the campaign expenses of any party… Let individuals contribute as they desire; but let us prohibit in effective fashion all corporations making contributions for any political purpose, directly or indirectly.

Theodore Roosevelt: Inventor of Multi-tasking

There is no good reason why we should fear the future, but there is every reason why we should face it seriously, neither hiding from ourselves the gravity of the problems before us nor fearing to approach those problems with the unbending, unflinching purpose to solve them aright.

—Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Address, March 1905

No President ever enjoyed himself in the Presidency as much as I did; and no President after leaving the office took as much joy in life as I am taking.

— T.R. in letter to Lady Delamere, 7 March 1911
