Manhood. A Man's Usefulness depends upon his living up to His Ideals in so far as he can. It is hard to fail but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.  All Daring & Courage all iron endurance of misfortune make for a finer & nobler type of Manhood. Only those are fit to live who do not fear to Die, and None are fit to die who have shrunk from the Joy of Life and the Duty of Life.

Nature.  There is Delight in the Hardy Life of the Open. There are no words that can tell the Hidden Spirit of the Wilderness that can reveal its Mystery, its Melancholy, and its Charm. The Nation Behaves well if it Treats the Natural Resources as Assets which it MUST turn over to the Next Generation increased and Not impaired in Value. Conservation means development as much as it does Protection.

The State. Ours is a government of Liberty by, through, and under the law. A Great Democracy has got to be progressive or it will soon cease to be Great or a Democracy. Order without Liberty and Liberty without Order are Equally Destructive. In popular government results worth having can be achieved only by men who combine Worthy Ideals with practical good sense. If I must choose between Righteousness and Peace; I Choose Righteousness.

Youth. I want to see you game boys. I want to see you Brave and Manly and I also want to see you gentle and tender. Be practical as well as generous in your ideas. Keep your eyes on the stars but remember to keep your feet on the ground. Courage, Hard Work, Self Mastery, and Intelligent Effort are all essential to successful life. Alike for the Nation and the Individual. The one indispensable requisite is Character.

You Da' Man Ted.
