Quotable Sunday

It’s Sunday again. Another round of Quotable Sunday, at A Daily Dose of Toni! Go check out hers, everyone’s, quotes and join in yourself!!

I am going to do my quotes, from one of my favorite (ex) presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Bet you thought I was going to say someone else huh?! I’m sneaky that way.

“Be sincere; be brief; be seated.

“Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.

“Confidence… thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.

“Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.”

“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.

“It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

“We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.

Happy Quotable Sunday and Happy Reading!

  1. “We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.”

    These are words to live by. If there is no hope, belief or coviciton then how does a person get up everyday and look at themself in the mirror.

    I love FDR. Maybe I’m partial since his home is about 30 minutes from here and I’ve been there about 348479478 times on school field trips or that my great-grandfather was his bodyguard for some time. Great quotes for Quotable Sunday!

  5. Excellent choices. My fav is “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

    Would that we all do this one:
    “It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”

  7. Love the quotes this week!! This one especially …..”a nation doesn’t have to be cruel to be tough”…That one kind of goes with my theme this week! I like your idea of choosing an ex president and your favorite quotes from him:)

    I like this quote:
    “It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”
    Yes…trying something is the best way to find out what you love.
