[tr-m] Re: Theordore Roosevelt Quote
- In his autobiography, p. 350, he says
And as for a life deliberately devoted to pleasure as an end--why, the
greatest happiness is the happiness that comes as a by-product of striving
to do what must be done, even though sorrow is met in the doing. There is a
bit of homely philosophy, quoted by Squire Bill Widener, of Widener's
Valley, Virginia, which sums up one's duty in life: "Do what you can, with
what you've got, where you are."
This is in his chaper on Aoudoors and Indoors, chapter 9.
