Quotes: Teddy Roosevelt

A Quote from Teddy Roosevelt

I was looking through Barbara Bosworth’s stunning book of photos, Trees, when I came upon this quote in the accompanying essay by Douglas R. Nickel.

Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir at Yosemite

There is nothing more practical in the end than the preservation of beauty, than the preservation of anything that appeals to the higher emotions in mankind.

Well said, Teddy.

      Yeah, I remember we emailed about this a while ago and I still haven’t gotten to it. It is on my “For Later” shelf at the NY Public Library,though. One of these days, I’ll get to it.

      Always good seeing you around here again. Hoping all is well with you.
