"For, in fact, what is man in nature? A Nothing in comparison with the Infinite, an All in comparison with the Nothing, a mean between nothing and everything. Since he is infinitely removed from comprehending the extremes, the end of things and their beginning are hopelessly hidden from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the Nothing from what he was made, and the Infinite in which he is swallowed up.
What will he do then, but perceive the appearance of the middle of things, in an eternal despair of knowing either their beginning or t heir end. All things proceed from the Nothing, and are borne towards the Infinite. Who will follow these marvelous processes? The Author of these wonders understands them. None other can do so."
Teddy was high-energy and his spirit was restless. The kind of character that renews one’s enthusiasm for life and the struggle contained therein. He gets you off your ass and makes you want to do things. To leave intellectualism and comfort behind and to take action. At least, he’s had this effect on me as I’ve familiarized myself with him and his writings.I’m reading Theodore Rex right now and President Teddy Roosevelt was an absolute savage on immigration.
“He demanded reform on immigration laws, including a threefold ban on persons of low intellect, low morals and low wage requirements.”
