Franklin Roosevelt quotes by William F. Buckley Jr.
#1. Halfway through the second term of Franklin Roosevelt, the New Deal braintrusters began to worry about mounting popular concern over the national debt. In those days the size of the national debt was on everyone's mind. Indeed, Franklin Roosevelt had talked himself into office, in 1932, in part by promising to hack away at a debt which, even under the frugal Mr. Hoover, the people tended to think of as grown to menacing size. Mr. Roosevelt's wisemen worried deeply about the mounting tension ...

And then, suddenly, the academic community came to the rescue. Economists across the length and breadth of the land were electrified by a theory of debt introduced in England by John Maynard Keynes. The politicians wrung their hands in gratitude. Depicting the intoxicating political consequences of Lord Keynes's discovery, the wry cartoonist of the Washington Times Herald drew a memorable picture. In the center, sitting on a throne in front of a Maypole, was a jubilant FDR, cigarette tilted almost vertically, a grin on his face that stretched from ear to ear. Dancing about him in a circle, hands clasped together, their faces glowing with ecstasy, the braintrusters, vested in academic robes, sang the magical incantation, the great discovery of Lord Keynes: "We owe it to ourselves." With five talismanic words, the planners had disposed of the problem of deficit spending. Anyone thenceforward who worried about an increase in the national debt was just plain ignorant of the cent #Quote by William F. Buckley Jr.
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Barack Obama
#2. The United States and Saudi Arabia have an extraordinary relationship and friendship that dates back to Franklin Roosevelt. #Quote by Barack Obama
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by David Gergen
#3. Ronald Reagan is clearly to television what Franklin Roosevelt was to radio. #Quote by David Gergen
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Alan J. Heeger
#4. I have a strong memory of the day I was told that my father had a weak heart and that he had to go to the hospital. He died when I was nine years old on the same day that Franklin Roosevelt died; it was his 45th birthday. #Quote by Alan J. Heeger
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Arsalan Iftikhar
#5. The irony, of course, is that not long ago, it was Trump's own ancestors - German American immigrants - who were the demons of the day, as the United States fought two world wars against Germany. The only thing that saved Trump's people from being rounded up and put in camps during World War II, like Japanese American families - as Trump lauded President Franklin Roosevelt for doing - was that their skin color happened to be white. Those who are so eager to stigmatize Muslims today should keep this in mind - next time around it could be them. That's the way these American nativist, "know-nothing" uprisings work. One day it's Catholics who are the reviled aliens, then it's Jewish people, then it's Muslims. If you don't belong to one of these groups, just wait your turn - you could be next in line.
We will always be subjected to these us-versus-them hysteria campaigns as long as people in power seek to divide Americans for their own cynical political purposes - whether it's to whip up war fever, split apart working people, or simply keep the citizenry fearful and easier to manipulate. #Quote by Arsalan Iftikhar
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Robert Dallek
#6. In his State of the Union speech in January 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt declared America's commitment to Four Freedoms in the struggle against Nazi totalitarianism. Among them was the freedom from fear. #Quote by Robert Dallek
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#7. Director Ken Burns revealed that his next documentary is about Franklin Roosevelt, and it's fourteen hours long ... which sounds like too much, until you realize there's been over thirty hours of TV dedicated to Honey Boo Boo. #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#8. Meeting Franklin Roosevelt was like opening your first bottle of champagne; knowing him was like drinking it. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Ann Richards
#9. I was born during the Depression in a little community just outside Waco, and I grew up listening to Franklin Roosevelt on the radio. #Quote by Ann Richards
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by William A. Rusher
#10. I don't think she ever had a single initiative at the United Nations that was not previously [vetted] by the people at the State Department, approved of, and authorized. She did manage to get around the world an awful lot, and find other parts of her vast slum project that needed repair. But I don't think that that was the main point. The main point was that she, after all, connoted Franklin Roosevelt, who by then was long dead, and had a certain prestige and power on that account. #Quote by William A. Rusher
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Elizabeth Warren
#11. My grandmother had never been very political, and she sure didn't follow high finance. But decades later, she was still repeating her line that she knew two things about Franklin Roosevelt: He made it safe to put money in banks and---she always paused here and smiled---he did a lot of other good things.

And that was my pitch to Congressman Frank. Start with something that people understand, something that solves a problem they can see. Do that, and then they'll have confidence in the work you do to fix the parts they can't see...

Start simple. Fix something people can see. #Quote by Elizabeth Warren
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Walter Lippmann
#12. Here lay the political genius of Franklin Roosevelt: that in his own time he knew what were the questions that had to be answered, even though he himself did not always find the full answer. #Quote by Walter Lippmann
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Nigel Hamilton
#13. Republican isolationists had certainly tied the hands of every U.S. president, year after year - berating Franklin Roosevelt in particular and his attempts to ready the nation for inevitable attack. #Quote by Nigel Hamilton
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Charles S. Maier
#14. Fascist intellectuals, such as Ugo Spirito, made the round of conferences preaching the virtues of postcapitalism fascism and in fact tried to nudge the structure in a 'leftist' direction by calling for more collective control and even corporative ownership of the economy. Mussolini looked abroad to find that Franklin Roosevelt was merely seeking to emulate Italy's innovations. #Quote by Charles S. Maier
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by George Will
#15. Since the emergence of the Republican Party, only two Democratic presidents, Franklin Roosevelt and John Kennedy, have been followed by Democrats, and both FDR and JFK died in office, so their successors ran as incumbents. #Quote by George Will
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Joe Biden
#16. When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened. #Quote by Joe Biden
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Arthur C. Brooks
#17. Franklin Roosevelt had warned in his 1935 State of the Union address that "continued dependence" on government support "induces a spiritual and moral disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fiber. To dole out relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit. #Quote by Arthur C. Brooks
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by William A. Rusher
#18. One has to say that they [Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt] were pioneering to some extent. They didn't know that some of the housing projects that they were putting up for the poor were going to turn into crack dens and rapists' bowers and things of that sort, which they have since become. But you can't always foresee the future. I'm sure their intentions were the best. #Quote by William A. Rusher
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#19. You have never seen greatness in a Presidency; I have. It was a rich kid who you would think had every reason to be a horse's ass - Franklin Roosevelt. He was humane and wise and resourceful. He was called a traitor to his class. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Gaylord Nelson
#20. Franklin Roosevelt was very concerned about environmental issues. #Quote by Gaylord Nelson
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Thomas Frank
#21. But such people (Moderate Conservatives) aren't liberal. What they are is corporate. Their habits and opinions owe far more to the standards of courtesy and taste that prevail within the white-collar world than they do to Franklin Roosevelt and the United Mine Workers. We live in a time, after all, when hard-nosed bosses compose awestruck disquisitions on the nature of 'change,' punk rockers dispense leadership secrets, shallow profundities about authenticity sell luxury cars, tech billionaires build rock'n'roll musuems, management theorists ponder the nature of coolness, and a former lyricist fro the Grateful Dead hail the dawn of New Economy capitalism from the heights of Davos. Coversvatives may not understand why, but business culture had melded with counterculture for reasons having a great deal to do with business culture's usual priority - profit. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by James A. Michener
#22. I am a humanist because I think humanity can, with constant moral guidance, create reasonably decent societies. I think that young people who want to understand the world can profit from the works of Plato and Socrates, the behaviour of the three Thomases, Aquinas, More and Jefferson - the austere analyses of Immanuel Kant and the political leadership of Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt. [The World Is My Home (1991)] #Quote by James A. Michener
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by John Boehner
#23. It's easy to kick somebody when they're down. George W. Bush has dealt with more difficult issues than any president since Franklin Roosevelt. And I've told my colleagues it's time that we go stand up for the president. #Quote by John Boehner
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Theodore C. Sorensen
#24. I think Democrats made a mistake running away from liberalism. Liberalism, uh, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John and Robert Kennedy - that's what the Democratic party ought to reach for. #Quote by Theodore C. Sorensen
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#25. No lover ever studied every whim of his mistress as I did those of President Roosevelt. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Peter Jennings
#26. It is essential for politicians to make a connection with us, as Franklin Roosevelt did, as Teddy Roosevelt did, as John F. Kennedy did, as Ronald Reagan did. #Quote by Peter Jennings
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Jeffrey Sachs
#27. The great leaders of the second world war alliance, Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, understood the twin sides of destruction and salvation. Their war aims were not only to defeat fascism, but to create a world of shared prosperity. #Quote by Jeffrey Sachs
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#28. The New York Times denounces America's "dancing with dictators." Guilty as charged. Dance we do. And without apology. With no more apology than Franklin Roosevelt offered when he reportedly said of Nicaragua's Anastasio Somoza, "He may be a son of a bitch. But he's our son of a bitch."

Roosevelt was a grownup. He made choices. He slew his dragons one at a time. He understood that we do not live in the best of all possible worlds. He understood that in an international arena populated by sons of bitches, you make your distinctions, or you die. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Pete Du Pont
#29. Franklin Roosevelt had to govern at a time of crisis. If you're going to make changes in the way a nation thinks, you have to have the ability to take the crisis of the moment and use it to shape an agenda. #Quote by Pete Du Pont
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Dennis Kucinich
#30. My aspirations for this country would be on the scope of what Franklin Roosevelt brought to this country in 1932 when he saw a nation that was broken economically. #Quote by Dennis Kucinich
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#31. Presidents lie all the time. Really great presidents lie. Abraham Lincoln managed to end slavery in America partially by deception. (In an 1858 debate, he flatly insisted that he had no intention of abolishing slavery in states where it was already legal  -  he had to say this in order to slow the tide of secession.) Franklin Roosevelt lied about the U.S. position of neutrality until we entered World War II after the attack on Pearl Harbor. (Though the public and Congress believed his public pledge of impartiality, he was already working in secret with Winston Churchill and selling arms to France.) Ronald Reagan lied about Iran-Contra so much that it now seems like he was honestly confused. Politically, the practice of lying is essential. By the time the Lewinsky story broke, Clinton had already lied about many, many things. (He'd openly lied about his level of commitment to gay rights during the '92 campaign.) The presidency is not a job for an honest man. It's way too complex. If honesty drove the electoral process, Jimmy Carter would have served two terms and the 2008 presidential race would have been a dead heat between Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Robert Kennedy
#32. One of the great creative statesmen of our age was Franklin Roosevelt. He was creative precisely because he preferred experiment to ideology. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Greg Iles
#33. Did the fact that Martin Luther King diddled all those women change what he did for his people? Or Franklin Roosevelt? General Eisenhower? Not one whit. Men are men, and gods are for storybooks. And if you've read your Edith Hamilton or Jane Harrison - or the Old Testament, for that matter - you'll know that gods acted like men most of the time, or worse. #Quote by Greg Iles
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Russell Baker
#34. Few expected very much of Franklin Roosevelt on Inauguration Day in 1933. Like Barack Obama seventy-six years later, he was succeeding a failed Republican president, and Americans had voted for change. What that change might be Roosevelt never clearly said, probably because he himself didn't know. #Quote by Russell Baker
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#35. When President Roosevelt signed Social Security into law in 1935, 65 percent of African Americans nationally and between 70 and 80 percent in the South were ineligible. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by William A. Rusher
#36. Well, you have to remember that until 1948, when Hubert Humphrey and others forced the Democratic Party to adopt a new policy on civil rights, the Democratic Party was the party of the old solid South. All of the racists, all of the Cottonhead Smith types and so on were Democrats, allies of Franklin Roosevelt - because of their seniority - of all the major committees of the Congress. #Quote by William A. Rusher
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Geoffrey Cowan
#37. When he [Franklin Roosevelt] ultimately does not get the Republican Party nomination and decides to start his new Bull Moose Party, he does, for the first time, let black delegates be part of the party from elsewhere in the country. #Quote by Geoffrey Cowan
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Pete Du Pont
#38. Franklin Roosevelt was a great leader. He saw how to use the levers of power to affect change. #Quote by Pete Du Pont
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by William Stringfellow
#39. The language of the Bible regarding principalities – the ruling authorities, the angelic powers, the demons, and the like – sounds, I suppose, strange in modern society, but these words in fact refer to familiar realities in contemporary life. The principalities refer to those entities in creation which nowadays are called institutions, ideologies, and images. Thus a nation is a principality. Or the Communist ideology is a principality. Or the public image of a human being, say a movie star or a politician, is a principality. The image or legend of Marilyn Monroe or Franklin Roosevelt is a reality, distinguishable from the person bearing the same name, which survives and has its own existence apart from the existence of the person. #Quote by William Stringfellow
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Robert Dallek
#40. George Washington sets the nation on its democratic path. Abraham Lincoln preserves it. Franklin Roosevelt sees the nation through depression and war. #Quote by Robert Dallek
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Mike DeWine
#41. In 1937, President Franklin Roosevelt reminded us that the Constitution is, and I quote, "a layman's document, not a lawyer's contract." #Quote by Mike DeWine
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Hillary Clinton
#42. I think you have to take the man and say to yourself, [Donald Trump] is someone who wants to occupy the Oval Office, where Franklin Roosevelt, Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and people who were our president, and I don't think it's just a woman's issue. I think it's an issue that should be of concern to all Americans. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#43. He wish'd to please everybody; and, having little to give, he gave expectations. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#44. If you can develop this ability to see what you look at, to understand its meaning, to readjust your knowledge to this new information, you can continue to learn and to grow as long as you live and you'll have a wonderful time doing it. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#45. I believe in one God, Creator of the Universe in that He ought to be whipped from pilar to post and back again for His shameful actions toward Humanity. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#46. Just as democratic government cannot be condemned because of errors and even crimes committed by men democratically elected, so trade-unionism must not be condemned because of errors or crimes of occasional trade-union leaders. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by David Ogilvy
#47. Viewers have a way of remembering the celebrity while forgetting the product. I did not know this when I paid Eleanor Roosevelt $35,000 to make a commercial for margarine. She reported that her mail was equally divided. "One half was sad because I had damaged my reputation. The other half was happy because I had damaged my reputation." Not one of my proudest memories. #Quote by David Ogilvy
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#48. What physicians call perspirable matter is that vapour which passes off from our bodies, from the lungs, and through the pores of the skin. The quantity of this is said to be five eighths of what we eat. - Author. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Theodore Roosevelt

Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Franklin P. Adams
#50. The best part of the fiction in many novels is the notice that the characters are imaginary. #Quote by Franklin P. Adams
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Anonymous
#51. Thorne sent his answers to Franklin in the form of heavily researched memos. Pages long, deeply sourced, and covered in equations, they were more like scientific journal articles than anything else. Franklin's team wrote new rendering software based on these equations and spun up a wormhole. The result was extraordinary. It was like a crystal ball reflecting the universe, a spherical hole in spacetime. #Quote by Anonymous
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Mark Twain

Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#53. Unjust war is to be abhorred; but woe to the nation that does not make ready to hold its own in time of need against all who would harm it! And woe thrice over to the nation in which the average man loses the fighting edge, loses the power to serve as a soldier if the day of need should arise! #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#54. Ben Franklin was a little stout later in life and it was said that in Paris a young woman, tapping him on his protruding abdomen, said,"Dr. Franklin, if this were on a woman, we'd know what to think." And Franklin replied,"Half an hour ago, Mademoiselle, it was on a woman, and now what do you think?" #Quote by Benjamin Franklin

Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Douglas Brinkley

Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Dick Gephardt
#57. We can see beyond the present shadows of war in the Middle East to a new world order where the strong work together to deter and stop aggression. This was precisely Franklin Roosevelt's and Winston Churchill's vision for peace for the post-war period. #Quote by Dick Gephardt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#58. We want men who will fix their eyes on the stars, but who will not forget that their feet must walk on the ground. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#59. The next war will be a war in which people not armies will suffer, and our boasted, hard-earned civilization will do us no good. Cannot the women rise to this great opportunity and work now, and not have the double horror, if another war comes, of losing their loved ones, and knowing that they lifted no finger when they might have worked hard? #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#60. There must be absolute religious liberty, for tyranny and intolerance are as abhorrent in matters intellectual and spiritual as in matters political and material; and more and more we must all realize that conduct is of infinitely greater importance than dogma. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Jentezen Franklin
#61. The discipline of fasting breaks you out of the world's routine. #Quote by Jentezen Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Miles Franklin
#62. Civilization, stretching up to recognize that every child is a portion of State wealth, may presently make some movement to recognize maternity as a business or office needing time and strength, not as a mere passing detail thrown in among mountains of other slavery. #Quote by Miles Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#63. I think everyone, at some time in his life, has this happen to him, comes face to face with the bitter realization that he has failed in something that means a tremendous amount and probably in a relation that is close to him. Life teaches you that you cannot attain real maturity until you are ready to accept this harsh knowledge, this limitation in yourself, and make the difficult adjustment. Either you must learn to allow someone else to meet the need, without bitterness or envy, and accept it; or somehow you must make yourself learn to meet it. If you refuse to accept the limitation in yourself, you will be unable to grow beyond this point. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#64. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#65. The first is the political tale of how thirteen colonies came together and agreed on the decision to secede from the British Empire. Here the center point is the Continental Congress, and the leading players, at least in my version, are John Adams, John Dickinson, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. #Quote by Joseph J. Ellis
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#66. There are rainy days in autumn and stormy days in winter when the rocking chair in front of the fire simply demands an accompanying book. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by DeVon Franklin
#67. Just because you may not see this big, grand show or you may not fall down a tree and all of a sudden get miraculously healed, that doesn't mean the miraculous isn't all around you. #Quote by DeVon Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#68. Is it only in the army in the Philippines that Americans sometimes commit deeds that cause all other Americans to regret?
[Theodore Roosevelt 1901 relating reports of water torture in the Philippines to lynching in the south] #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#69. What we need in the world is manners ... I think that if, instead of preaching brotherly love, we preached good manners, we might get a little further. It sounds less righteous and more practical. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#70. Never take a wife till thou hast a house(and a fire) to put her in. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin

Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Ruth Franklin
#72. Moaning about how his own brilliance disadvantaged him was not a recipe for popularity. Stanley was initially as isolated in high school as Shirley would be in Rochester: "miserably lonely, reading prodigiously, hating everyone, and wishing I had enough courage to talk to girls." One day a boy he recognized from class sat down next to him in the locker room. Stanley, trying to make conversation as he best knew how, asked his classmate if he read Poe. "No, I read very well, thank you," came the reply. Stanley responded huffily that he didn't think puns were very clever. "I don't either," said the other boy, "but they're something I can't help, like a harelip. #Quote by Ruth Franklin

#73. So from the housing standpoint, steady as you go, I think, would be the best medicine. #Quote by Franklin Raines
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#74. If your riches are yours, why don't you take them with you to the other world? #Quote by Benjamin Franklin

Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#76. The misers cheese is wholesomest #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#77. Furnished as all Europe now is with Academies of Science, with nice instruments and the spirit of experiment, the progress of human knowledge will be rapid and discoveries made of which we have at present no conception. I begin to be almost sorry I was born so soon, since I cannot have the happiness of knowing what will be known a hundred years hence. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin

Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Aretha Franklin

Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Andy Borowitz
#80. As we go from Abraham Lincoln to Theodore Roosevelt to Mitt Romney, I now understand why the Republicans don't believe in evolution. #Quote by Andy Borowitz
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Dave Franklin
#81. I seem to feel ashamed of going out and getting merry - I find it oddly humiliating - but I'm quite happy to sit here like some dipsomaniac and become maudlin. For me, that is cool behaviour. Once you realise you're going to be on your own for the next few decades, it seems as pleasurable a way as any to pass the years. #Quote by Dave Franklin
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by E. Haldeman-Julius
#82. Ben Franklin said:
"Early to bed and early to rise
Make a man healthy wealthy and wise"
Lately I have read the advice given to William Randolph Hearst, when a young man, by his father:
"Go downtown at noon and rob the other fellows of what they have made during the morning. #Quote by E. Haldeman-Julius
Franklin Roosevelt quotes by Michelle Franklin
#83. I leave the outdoors to you. It is too warm out there to read comfortable, and summer, like many uncomfortable things, is as welcome as a dim woman. It is tolerable to look at, but after being made to interact with it, nobody wants anything to do with it. #Quote by Michelle Franklin
