Strenuous Life

Backorder (temporarily out of stock)

Description

A powerful collection of writings by Theodore Roosevelt, giving his vision of how both personal and national life can be lived to the best advantage. He writes, "I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife; to preach that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man who does not shrink from danger, from hardship, or from bitter toil, and who out of these wins the splendid ultimate triumph."
