TRThursday: The Old Lion is Dead – Theodore Roosevelt Dies

As I sit here writing the final article in our wonderful #TRThursday series, I find myself a bit emotional thinking about the man, Roosevelt, his last many adventures, his death, and the impact that such a character has had on history. Many, including myself, will chide his presidency as being one of progressive policies that altered ...

TRThursday: The Things that Will Destroy America

While Theodore Roosevelt got a number of things wrong as president, he had great insight into what makes America strong or weak, and his words can easily be applied to any nation. Time and again, he enjoined people to not give in to soft-living but instead pursue the strenuous life of hard-work and purpose. He was ...

TRThursday: Master of Human Destinies am I!

If we were to tread along Theodore Roosevelt’s path to manliness we would see a trail blazed through the jungles of strength and forests of knowledge. One of the most appealing qualities of the Colonel, both then and now, was that he could relate to the man on horseback just as well as ...

TRThursday: Great Thoughts vs. Great Actions

This #TRThursday should be a challenge for all of us. Every man has opinions, but fewer of us are action oriented. We want to see change in the world but we don’t seek opportunities to make those changes happen. We would rather not be inconvenienced, leave it up to the professionals or the ...

TRThursday: Get Action! Do things! Be Sane!

Sometimes I read the things Theodore yelled at people and think, “I wish I had the guts to say that!” I may never get used to the kind of confidence he had in himself and his beliefs. The sort of conviction that moves him to say what ought to be said in the ...

Famous Quotes: Fierce or Flippant – C.S. Lewis

When C.S. Lewis made the below quote, he was referring to the attitude of atheist at Cambridge vs. Oxford.

TRThursday: Worth More than a College Education…

While much time is spent on Theodore Roosevelt the out-of-doors-man and President, his fervent beliefs as a Christian are often overlooked. Much of what guided his views of manhood came from what he believed God-fearing Christian men were both called to be and, with the help of God, able to become.

TRThursday: A Pistol With a History!

“This is a pistol with a history,” he said, fondling his revolver affectionately. “It was taken from the wreck of the Maine. When I took it to Cuba, I made a vow to kill at least one Spaniard with it, and I did…” – Theodore Roosevelt, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, Edmund Morris ...

TRThursday: Play Your Part, Manfully!

There is a lot of cynicism in today’s culture and media. Cynicism is different from sarcasm, for sarcasm is a play on truth and leaves the door open for humor or a way out, but cynicism is merely hopeless. Growing up, Ronald Regan was my president, and the message from him was almost ...

TRThursday: The Power to Strive and Fight and Conquer!

The word ‘Manly’ was one of Roosevelt’s favorite terms. In his day the term was associated less with machismo and more with true manliness. Yet even by the late 1800’s, Roosevelt began to see a softness forming in the American Spirit. The move from the hard-working, rural lifestyle to the comfort of the ...

TRThursday: Mind and Morals

Theodore Roosevelt is said to have read some 10,000 books in his lifetime. He had an amazing ability to speed-read and retain the information. It was not unusual for him to read a book or two in a day, in his spare moments paging through a book on botany and then in another moment on the war ...
