10 Rules for Reading by Theodore Rooselvelt

1. “The room for choice is so limitless that to my mind it seems absurd to try to make catalogues which shall be supposed to appeal to all the best thinkers. This is why I have no sympathy whatever with writing lists of the One Hundred Best Books, or the Five-Foot Library. It is all right for a man to amuse himself by composing a list of a hundred very good books… But there is no such thing as a hundred books that are best for all men, or for the majority of men, or for one man at all times.”

2. “A book must be interesting to the particular reader at that particular time.”

3. “Personally, the books by which I have profited infinitely more than by any others have been those in which profit was a by-product of the pleasure; that is, I read them because I enjoyed them, because I liked reading them, and the profit came in as part of the enjoyment.”

4. “The reader, the booklover, must meet his own needs without paying too much attention to what his neighbors say those needs should be.”

5. “He must not hypocritically pretend to like what he does not like.”

6. “Books are almost as individual as friends. There is no earthly use in laying down general laws about them. Some meet the needs of one person, and some of another; and each person should beware of the booklover’s besetting sin, of what Mr. Edgar Allan Poe calls ‘the mad pride of intellectuality,’ taking the shape of arrogant pity for the man who does not like the same kind of books.”

7. “Now and then I am asked as to ‘what books a statesman should read,’ and my answer is, poetry and novels – including short stories under the head of novels.”

8. “Ours is in no sense a collector’s library. Each book was procured because some one of the family wished to read it. We could never afford to take overmuch thought for the outsides of books; we were too much interested in their insides.”

9. “[We] all need more than anything else to know human nature, to know the needs of the human soul; and they will find this nature and these needs set forth as nowhere else by the great imaginative writers, whether of prose or of poetry.”

10. “Books are all very well in their way, and we love them at Sagamore Hill; but children are better than books.”

Dare mighty things

It is not the critic who counts; nor the one who points out how the strong person stumbled, or where the doer of a deed could have done better.

The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who does actually strive to do deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends oneself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he or she fails, at least fails while daring greatly.

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

A Remontada Americana: Transformando o fel em mel

Lembrando que as austeridades econômicas por si só.

sevem somente para aumentar o desemprego e diminuir o consumo.

Os EUA na crise de 29, elegeram Franklin Roosevelt, ele criou pacotes de incetivos chamado New Deal.

Como o objetivo de criar empregos e aumentar a infra estrutura americana.

Construiu pontes, Rodovias e Ferrovias (Hoje conhecido como PAC)

Criou programas sociais aos menos favorecidos. (Hoje conhecido como Bolsa Família)

Diminuição da jornada de trabalho

Aumento de salário

Ainda amparou os desempregados, criando o seguro desemprego  ! 

Com esses incentivos tiraram os EUA da pior crise do século XX, e consequentemente cresceram mais forte do que nunca. Tornando a nação mais rica e potente do mundo.

Por isso coloco Franklin Delano Roosevelt como, O MAIOR PRESIDENTE DOS ESTADOS UNIDOS DA AMÉRICA !

Afrente dos Libertadores George Washington e Abraham Lincoln !
