“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt (SOURCE OF THIS POSTING)

“We may not be able to prepare the future for our children, but we can at least prepare our children for the future.”

“Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds.”
“To reach a port we must set sail –
Sail, not tie at anchor
Sail, not drift.”
“Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere. Our support goes to those who struggle to gain those rights and keep them. Our strength is our unity of purpose. To that high concept there can be no end save victory.”
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.”

“I’m not the smartest fellow in the world, but I can sure pick smart colleagues.”
“Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.”
“Books can not be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can abolish memory… In this war, we know, books are weapons. And it is a part of your dedication always to make them weapons for man’s freedom.”
“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.”
“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”
“There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still.”
“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerated the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.”
“Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth.”
“In these days of difficulty, we Americans everywhere must and shall choose the path of social justice…, the path of faith, the path of hope, and the path of love toward our fellow man.”
“Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.”
“Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.”

“True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
Freedom”
“The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.”
