Youth | Theodore Roosevelt

I WANT TO SEE YOU GAME BOYS

I WANT TO SEE YOU BRAVE AND MAINLY

AND I ALSO WANT TO SEE YOU GENTLE

AND TENDER

BE PRACTICAL AS WELL AS GENEROUS

IN YOUR IDEALS KEEP YOUR EYES

ON THE STARS AND KEEP YOUR FEET

ON THE GROUND

COURAGE HARD WORK SELF MASTERY

AND INTELLIGENT EFFORT ARE ALL

ESSENTIAL TO A SUCCESFUL LIFE

CHARACTER IN THE LONG RUN

IS THE DECISIVE FACTOR IN THE LIFE

OF AND INDIVIDUAL AND OF NATIONS

ALIKE

Theodore Roosevelt
