Theodore Roosevelt quote

Post by S7 OC on Tue Mar 29, 2016 2:33 pm

I know we don't talk politics very much on here but I stumbled apon an interesting Teddy Roosevelt about the US and immigration.†

We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an
American and assimilates himself to us he shall be treated on an exact equality with every one else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.
But this is predicated upon the manís becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isnít doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.

I had always hoped that this land might become a safe and agreeable asylum to the virtuous and persecuted part of mankind, to whatever nation they might belong. ―George Washington

People come here penniless but not cultureless. They bring us gifts. We can synthesize the best of our traditions with the best of theirs. We can teach and learn from each other to produce a better AmericaÖ ―Psychologist & author Mary Pipher

I prefer to just read whatever Thomas Sowell is writing.

"We all change when you think about it. We are all different people, all through our lives. And that's okay, that's good, you've got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be... I will not forget one line of this. Not one day, I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me."- the Doctor
