HAPPY BIRTHDAY TEDDY
Happy birthday to our 26th President. Writer, outdoors man, environmentalist, solider,Police Commissioner of NYC, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Governor, amateur practitioner of taxidermy, advocate of the strenuous life, buster of trusts and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
Here is an excerpt from my favourite speech that he gave. It is from his speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, France. Given on April 23, 1910, it has come to be famously known as the "Man in the Arena Speech." Every trial lawyer should carry a copy of this with him/her. It helps to read after the losses.
