A humorous article about TR from Cracked.com:
And one from TVTropes.org:
TR's official Presidential portrait, painted by esteemed portrait painter John Singer Sargent.
"The man who has never made any mistakes, has never made anything."
"Courtesy is as much the mark of a gentleman as is courage."
"Good to the last drop." - TR's assessment of the coffee at the Maxwell House hotel, and it's been their slogan ever since.
"Bodily vigor is good, and vigor of intellect even better, but far above is character."
"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing."
"Don't shirk, don't foul, and hit the line hard."
