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.
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.
We are a nation of many nationalities, many races, many religions-bound together by a single unity, the unity of freedom and equality. Whoever seeks to set one nationality against another, seeks to degrade all nationalities.
The virtues are lost in self-interest as rivers are lost in the sea.
The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.
Our handicaps exist only in our minds.
In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.
We must especially beware of that small group of selfish men who would clip the wings of the American Eagle in order to feather their own nests.
Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth.
Forests are the lungs of our land.
Rules are not necessarily sacred, principles are.
