More From Theodore Roosevelt
- "The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people."
- "The best executive is one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it."
- "The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty. The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants of regrets. Only the middle-aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits."
More In Education
- "Mothers, unless they were very poor, didn’t work. Both of my parents had to leave education. My mother had to work in a cotton mill until 18 or 19, when she took some training in domestic science."― Roger Bannister
- "Natural ability without education has more often raised a man to glory and virtue than education without natural ability."― Marcus Aurelius
- "Competitiveness is really what it costs you per man-hour to get you what you want. In other words, there’s an education level that plays into the mix and so if it’s inexpensive to buy an hour of real good education in places like China versus the U.S., that factors in."― Ray Dalio
